Rob Corddry, Amanda Peet and Maya Rudolph have joined the cast of The Way, Way Back (formerly The Way Back), Deadline reports. They join Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Liam James and Sam Rockwell in the comedy drama, set to begin filming next week in Massachusetts.
Written by the Academy Award winning team of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendants), The Way, Way Back is set over the course of a summer and follows a teenage boy (James) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with an adult (Rockwell) — one that helps him confront his abusive stepfather (Carell) and reconnect with his mother (Collette).
Faxon and Rash will appear as actors as well, playing Waterpark employees where James and Rockwell’s characters are employed. In front of the camera, Rash is best known for playing Dean Pelton on NBC’s “Community.”
