Segel and Helms join stoner comedy

Far out, man. Comedy stalwarts Jason Segel and Ed Helms have signed the dotted line to star in stoner comedy Jeff Who Lives At Home .

Written by the Duplass brothers - the indified filmmakers who directed Marisa Tomei, Catherine Keener and Jonah Hill in this year’s fest-hit laugh-fest Cyrus - the film “chronicles a day in the life of two brothers, one a loser (Segel) who lives at home and the other (Helms) more together but overbearing”.

Judy Greer is also in talks to play Helms’ wife, while the role of their mother is still going through casting (Kathy Bates, anyone?).

Shooting kicks off next month in Louisiana, and Paramount are producing the film.

Helms is best known for showing up in last year’s big hit The Hangover , while Segel has been in everything from Forgetting Sarah Marshall to much-loved cult gem of a TV show Freaks And Geeks .

Will this be as explosive as Pineapple Express ? We can but dream...
