Ed Helms Heads for Cedar Rapids


Ed Helms will follow The Hangover with Cedar Rapids, an Alexander Payne-produced comedy to be directed by Miguel Arteta, reports Variety.

Shooting will begin in October, when Helms is on hiatus from NBC sitcom “The Office.”

Helms will play a sad-sack insurance agent who goes to an industry convention to try to save the jobs of his colleagues.

The script was written by Phil Johnston, who developed it with Helms. Fox Searchlight will likely distribute the film.
