Barkhad Abdi, Tilda Swinton in Talks for Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck

Judd Apatow's next directorial effort, the Amy Schumer-written and -starring Trainwreck, has already cast its main supporting actors, Bill Hader and Brie Larson, so it's time for some classic Apatowian color. Variety reports Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena, Ezra Miller, and Tilda Swinton are all in different stages of talks. This would be Abdi's first major role since Captain Phillips, and we super hope his character ends up with Swinton's.
