It may not have the highest budget, but Rapturepalooza is promising to deliver some bang for its comedic buck with the just-announced additions of Thomas Lennon, Rob Huebel, and Rob Corddry. Basically, they just cherry-picked from the cast of “Children’s Hospital,” which is a pretty sound strategy when it comes to procuring comedic talent.
Lennon is an alum of “Reno 911,” “The State,” and has had scene stealing performances in I Love You, Man and the recent Cedar Rapids.
Rob Huebel has seemed poised to make the jump from a “that guy” to comedic staple in films such as The Other Guys, I Love You, Man (also), and Little Fockers.
And if you don’t know Rob Corddry by now, I really can’t help you. Ok. I can help you. He’s had turns in Old School, Hot Tub Time Machine, and”Arrested Development.”
The film revolves around characters played by Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley, who must defeat the Antichrist (played by”The Office‘s” Craig Robinson). Not that it matters. When you get a cast of comedians this strong together, the less boxed in by plot they are, the better. See also: Wet Hot American Summer. (Variety)
