Ben Schwartz To Run Alongside Timberlake and Affleck; Talk Alongside Oswalt and Schaal


Ben Schwartz has been cast in the upcoming drama Runner, Runner. Set in the world of online gambling, Justin Timberlake plays a totally realistic looking online poker player who becomes the protégé and then enemy of an off-shore gaming CEO (Ben Affleck). Schwartz plays Timberlake’s friend, which would make Tom Haverford obscenely jealous. He was also named as one of the leads in a new animated pilot called Working Class Hero, which co-stars Patton Oswalt. Things are going so well for Schwartz, I doubt he’ll have to get run over by a Lexus anytime soon.
