Disliking Ed Helms is almost as hard as disliking Ryan Gosling or Paul Rudd. Which is to say, nearly impossible. But if I put his nice-guy attitude and adorable a cappella singing aside, I have to admit that the latest project to which he’s signed on sounds a lot like a Larry the Cable Guy or Martin Lawrence vehicle. Ruh roh! (*paws over eyes*)
Universal Pictures has acquired the spec script “Central Intelligence” as a star vehicle for Ed Helms. Ike Barinholtz [a MadTV and Seltzer-Friedberg actor] and Dave Stassen’s script revolves around an accountant who’s thrown into the world of international espionage after reconnecting with an old friend through Facebook.

My, can you imagine the hijinks that would ensue if a fast-talking black man dull-witted redneck GOOFY, MILD-MANNERED ACCOUNTANT were suddenly thrown into the HIGH STAKES world of COUNTER INTELLIGENCE? This summer, ED HELMS is one fish, waaay out of water! (*air guitar*) (*fart sound*)
