Ron Livingston Joins Dinner For Schmucks
The Steve Carell-Paul Rudd comedy

26 October 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: Variety

The underrated Ron Livingston – who will always have a place in Empire’s heart for his work on Office Space, Swingers and, whisper it, his run as Berger in Sex And The City – has joined the cast of Jay Roach’s all-star comedy, Dinner For Schmucks.

In case your memory needs jogging, Schmucks stars Paul Rudd as a man who hosts a regular dinner party for his friends, the raison d’etre of which is to find the world’s most pathetic guest. When Carell’s apparent simpleton turns up, the quest appears over. Or is it? Etc. etc.

Livingston joins a table that will be brimming with top-tier comedic talent, from Zach Galifianakis to our very own Lucy Punch and David Walliams. No word on who he’s playing just yet, though.

The DreamWorks/Spyglass/Paramount movie is currently filming, with a July 23 release date set for next year.

Awesome
Ron Livingston is the shit. Since Swingers, Office Space & his hilarious role in Body Shots I've been a huge fan. His less comedic projects are also a joy to watch, especially Defying Gravity. Nice! More

Livingston!
As opposed to the remake as I am, any work for the underused Livingston is cause for celebration. More

Was I the only one who had to Google 'raison d’etre ? More

I completely forgot he was in SITC. He was in Band of Brothers though so i reckon that deserved the mention above Carrie et al...anyways, should be a fun movie More

Le Diner des Cons reimagined using real idiots?
The point of Francis Veber's original is that the friends are all wonderfully pompous arses. This already sounds like the line-up to the 50 Year Old Virgin. More

I take it this is another terrible attempt to remake a French classic?
Sounds like Le Diner des Cons to me.... More
