The Way, Way Back Casts Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, and Amanda Peet

The directorial debut from The Descendants writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash is becoming well-stocked with familiar faces. Not only will it star Steve Carell and his Little Miss Sunshine co-star Toni Collette — and feature Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney — but now Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, and Amanda Peet are all in the mix. Carell's character is a loserish husband and step-dad who gets stoned and sloshed and screws around, so mayhaps he'll be romancing one of these new hires.
