David Wain’s movie about National Lampoon co-founder Doug Kenney continues to take shape with some great comedy people, and a few more additions to the cast have been announced. In addition to Will Forte as Kenney, Joel McHale as Chevy Chase, Domhnall Gleeson as Henry Beard, and Thomas Lennon as Michael O’Donoghue, Deadlinereports this week that Matt Walsh has joined the film as publisher/producer Matty Simmons, Martin Mull will play an “imagined, older version of Kenney,” Rick Glassman will play Harold Ramis, Jon Daly will play Bill Murray, and Broad City alum John Gemberling will play John Belushi. The film is named after the Josh Karp book it’s based on, A Futile and Stupid Gesture, and starts production this month.
