Wilson And Silverman Join Peep World
Indie comedy with Michael C. Hall

20 March 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

Rainn Wilson, Sarah Silverman and Michael C. Hall have joined the cast of the indie comedy, Peep World. Now that’s a surefire way to get our attention.

Wilson, of course, is genius as the demented jobsworth Dwight K. Schrute in The Office (American vintage). Silverman is possibly the funniest woman on the planet right now. Hall, best known as Dexter on the show of the same name, is simply a fantastic actor. So the prospect of seeing them bounce off each other is mouthwatering.

Peep World – which would be a great name for a Peep Show movie, by the way – is about an author who causes major friction with his dysfunctional family after he writes a novel featuring barely-disguised versions of them. A similar thing happened in the Empire office once when this correspondent wrote a steamy fan-fiction about characters called Holly Richards and Ellen O’Hara. That did not go down well with Olly and Helen – though how they cracked the code, we’ll never know…

Anyway, back to Peep World. Barry Blaustein, who directed The Ringer, will call the shots on the movie, which also added up-and-coming actor Ben Schwartz to the cast. Occupant Films is stumping up the cash.
