Ben Schwartz joins Robert Zemeckis’ Man On Wire

Ben Schwartz, of Jean-Ralphio fame, has been added to Robert Zemeckis’ 3-D film based on the story of famed tightrope walker Philippe Petit. Though the Parks And Recreation actor will not portray the man who walked between the Twin Towers when they were first erected (that role is going to Joseph Gordon-Levitt), he will hopefully bring a comedic element to the film, whose documentary inspiration, Man On Wire, already has a whimsical, funny air about it. Adding to the eclectic ensemble is Sir Ben Kingsley. Schwartz gushed about scoring the role on his Tumblr, presumably after his eyes pissed tears.
