Will Forte is joining the cast of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s comedy flick Keanu, The Hollywood Reporter writes. For the project — about two pals (Key and Peele) who pose as drug dealers to re-steal a stolen cat — Forte is slotted to play a low-level pot dealer who’s an acquaintance of Peele’s character and obsessed with black culture. (In an ideal world this movie will have a crucial crossover moment with that Kevin Spacey cat movie, in which it turns out the cat Key and Peele have been looking for all along is none other than Catvin Spacey, a.k.a. Keanu. Pipe dream, but whatever. Forte and his marijuana will be crucial regardless.) The Last Man on Earth star joins Method Man and Gabrielle Union in supporting roles; they’ll all reportedly begin shooting in New Orleans within the next couple of months. Fun!
