Posted on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015 by Russ Fischer
The original Wet Hot American Summer cast was full of budding stars, as talents such as Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni, and Paul Rudd were among the huge ensemble when the film arrived in 2001. The original cast is reuniting for the Netflix limited series that is shooting now. And they’re being joined by more than a few faces new to the story, which takes place on the first day at a Jewish summer camp in 1981. Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig and Jason Schwartzman are all going to appear in various guises in Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.
Deadline reports the new cast additions to the series, which will be presented in eight parts.
According to the site,
Hamm will play a secret spy, Wiig is playing a snobby counselor at the preppy rival camp Camp Tigerclaw, Schwartzman is the boy’s camp head counselor while Pine’s character is described as mysterious.
Wet Hot American Summer is set to play on Neflix this summer.
The cast also features Amy Poehler, Michael Showalter, Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Kevin Sussman, Michaela Watkins, John Slattery, Josh Charles, Randall Park, Jayma Mays, Lake Bell, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel and Richard Schiff.
