Castings are 'Greek' to Universal threesome

Empty

Elisabeth Moss, Sean Combs and Rose Byrne have joined the cast of Universal's "Get Him to the Greek."

Nicholas Stoller is directing the Apatow Prods. film, which stars Jonah Hill and Russell Brand.

The script, which Stoller wrote, follows a fresh-out-of-college record company intern (Hill) hired to get an out-of-control rock star (Brand) from London to a gig at Los Angeles' Greek Theatre.

Moss, the female lead, plays Hill's repressed girlfriend. Combs will play Hill's boss, and Byrne is Brand's ex-girlfriend, a Courtney Love-type rocker.

Moss, one of the stars of AMC's "Mad Men," is shooting Columbia's comedy "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant. She is repped by Endeavor and Ribisi Entertainment.

Combs, repped by WMA and the Safran Co., is coming off a stint on CBS' "CSI: Miami."

The CAA-repped Byrne stars on FX's "Damages." (partialdiff)
