Casting details about Zach Galifianakis and Scott Aukerman’s Between Two Ferns movie are starting to trickle out, and today’s news will be sure to please comedy podcast fans of Comedy Bang! Bang! and Threedom. According to Deadline, frequent Aukerman collaborator Lauren Lapkus has a role in the Between Two Ferns film alongside The Last O.G.’s Ryan Gaul and UCB performer Jiavani Linayao. No word yet on who else we can expect to see in the film, but it was previously reported that Peter Dinklage, Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Keanu Reeves, and David Letterman were all rumored to show up.
Lapkus, Gaul, and Linayao will play the “loyal crew” that hits the road with Galifianakis to “complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews and restore his reputation” after Will Ferrell initially uploads Between Two Ferns to Funny or Die, a decision that causes Galifianakis to become “a viral laughing stock.” It’s going to be super meta, and it’s going to be on Netflix on September 20, so get ready.
