30 January 2015 1:38 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix has a few additional names to add to the already-large cast list of the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer series. The streaming video-on-demand company has added Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm, and Jason Schwartzman as new cast members to its upcoming original series.

According to Deadline, Pine, Wiig, Hamm, and Schwartzman will join the 20+ returning cast members from Michael Showalter and David Wain’s 2001 Wet Hot American Summer movie. The four new faces will appear as recurring guest stars in Netflix’s eight-part series. Saturday Night Live alumnus and Bridesmaids star Wiig may appear as a counsellor from Camp Firewood’s rival Camp Tigerclaw, and Mad Men’s Hamm is rumored to be a secret spy. Schwartzman (from The Grand Budapest Hotel) will reportedly play the boys’ camp head counsellor, while Pine (of Star Trek and Into the Woods) has an as-of-yet-undefined role.

Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer Series Adds Some Big Names To The List

29 January 2015 10:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We already know that the vast majority of the original film cast will be returning for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer series, now entitled Wet Hot American Summer: The First Day. And today we’re hearing that the series has added some pretty hefty names to an already impressive list that includes Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, and Paul Rudd. The latest additions come in the form of Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, and Jason Schwartzman.

According to Deadline (via Collider), Hamm will join the cast as “a secret spy,” with Wiig coming on board as a rival counselor at Camp Tigerclaw. Schwartzman will be playing a head camp counselor, and Pine…well, Pine’s character is “mysterious.” How much mystery can one have at a summer camp?

While these additions are certainly welcome, those are some very odd character descriptions. It does make one wonder what sort »

If you thought the cast of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer series couldn’t get any better, you were wrong. As first reported by Deadline, Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Chris Pine (Into the Woods), Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live), and Jason Schwartzman (Bored to Death) have now also joined the cast of the revival. Per Deadline, Hamm will play a spy (I cannot wait to see that), while Wiig will play a snobby counselor at the preppy Camp Tigerclaw, rival to Camp Firewood. Schwartzman will reportedly be the boy’s camp’s head counselor, and interestingly, Pine’s role is simply described as “mysterious.” All four of these new roles will be either guest star or recurring. Hamm, Pine, Wiig, and Schwartzman join the film’s original cast, which includes Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games films), Michael Ian Black (The State), Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Janeane Garofalo (Girlfriends’ Guide »

First Teaser Trailer for Wet Hot American Summer Netflix Series

28 January 2015 9:32 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

When David Wain directed 2001's Wet Hot American Summer, there's no way he could have known that half of the cast of his cult comedy would blow up and become major players in Hollywood. But a sequel has been whispered about for a long time, and now it's finally happening this summer as an eight-episode series on Netflix. The first teaser trailer for the show has been released, and it confirms the original cast is returning: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.

And the best part? Even though the actors have aged fourteen years since the original's release, this series is going to be a prequel. What a genuinely great idea — I can't wait to head back to camp.
