Friends With Benefits Cast Just Keeps Growing

I hadn’t paid much attention to Friends With Benefits, mostly because any news about it comes out on days I dust the Breadline broom cupboard. But after looking at the existing cast and the latest additons, I’m on board.

Though the official title is actually ‘Untitled Ivan Reitman Comedy’, as he is the director, everyone knows the project by it’s former name Friends With Benefits, so that’s what I’m going with. The title problem is down to the fact that there’s another project with the same name in production at the moment starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake which is helmed by Will Gluck.

Anywho, Reitman’s version is shaping up to be the more interesting movie just by the casting alone. Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Olivia Thirlby are already on board but now What Happens In Vegas star Lake Bell and comedian Guy Branum have signed up, according to Variety.

You might remember Lake from stealing pretty much every Vegas scene she was in along with Hot Tub Time Machine star Rob Corddry. Benefits will also be Chelsea Lately regular Guy Branum’s first movie role and hopefully it’ll be the start of big things for the funnyman.
