In what would make a perfect setup for a dad joke, Captain Kirk, Don Draper, a lady Ghostbuster, and Jason Schwartzman have all walked into a bar, if by “a bar” you mean “the set of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer series.” Deadline reports that Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, and, yes, Jason Schwartzman have joined the cast of the new, 8-episode Wet Hot, which takes place on the first day of Camp Firewood ’81. (The movie took place on the last day of camp.)
According to Deadline, Hamm will play a “secret spy,” Wiig the preppy counselor of a rival camp, Schwartzman the head boy’s camp counselor, and Pine will play a character described simply as “mysterious.” The quartet will be featured as recurring guest stars, with Michaela Watkins, John Slattery, Josh Charles, The Interview’s Randall Park, Jayma Mays, Lake Bell, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel and Richard Schiff also joining the huge ensemble cast in smaller, presumably one-off roles.
These newcomers join a previously announced cast of returning favorites including Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, and a bunch of other people who suck dick. (Turns out the supply of relevant Wet Hot quotes is not, in fact, infinite.)
