John C. Reilly is Making the Trip to Cedar Rapids


John C. Reilly is joining Ed Helms in Cedar Rapids, Fox Searchlight’s ensemble road-trip comedy that Miguel Arteta is directing.

The story, by Phil Johnston, centers on a wholesome and naive small-town Wisconsin man (Helms) who, when his role model dies, must represent his company at a regional insurance conference in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where his mind is blown by the big-town experience.

Reilly’s character also is attending the conference and is a family man who sees the event as a vacation and time to let loose.

Reilly can next be seen in Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant on October 23rd.
