Lucy Punch (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger), Bob Odenkirk (“Breaking Bad”) and Rich Sommer (“Mad Men”) are joining Jenna Fischer, Topher Grace, Malin Akerman and Chris Messina in Lee Kirk’s romantic comedy The Giant Mechanical Man, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is about about two outsiders – a misunderstood street performer (Messina) and the soft spoken zoo worker who falls for him. Akerman will play Fischer’s well-meaning sister who pushes her towards dating a pompous motivational speaker, played by Topher Grace.
Punch will play the street-performer’s girlfriend.
Filming just began in Detroit.
