Jonathan Daniel Brown, one of the breakout stars of Project X, is joining the cast of the New Artists Alliance's horror comedy Milo.

Ken Marino, Gillian Jacobs and Peter Stormare make up the cast of the pic, which centers on a man (Marino) with intense stomach trouble who learns to his horror that he has a demon living in his intestines. When he gives it permission to come out during a therapy session, the man names it Milo and tries to live a life in which he, not his demon, is in charge.
