Billy on the Street is coming to the neighborhood.

Comedian Billy Eichner, known for his hit series Billy on the Street and his role on Parks and Recreation, has joined sequel Neighbors 2, starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne.

Chloe Grace Moretz also has joined the cast, along with Kiersey Clemons and Beanie Feldstein, as The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported. The plot is being kept under wraps, but sources tell THR that this time there's a sorority involved. Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz and Liz Cackowski are returning to reprise their roles from the hit original.

Nicholas Stoller is returning to direct the sequel based on a script by Andrew Jay Cohen, Brendan O’Brien, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The film is currently shooting.

Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver are producing Neighbors 2 through their Point Grey Pictures, along with Good Universe. Cohen and O’Brien will serve as executive producers alongside Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane and Joseph Drake.

Erik Baiers and Chloe Yellin will oversee the project for Universal, while Erin Westerman is overseeing on behalf of Good Universe, and Josh Fagen will oversee for Point Grey. Both Westerman and Fagen will co-produce.

Eichner is very busy these days: He's also booked a role in the Will Ferrell-Amy Poehler New Line comedy, previously called The House.

He currently stars on the Hulu series Difficult People, which premiered in August and has been renewed for a second season. He created and stars in Billy on the Street, a game show that premiered in 2011. Starting with the fourth season, which will premiere on Oct. 8, the show will air on truTV. He was also seen in the opening skit at the Emmys on Sunday.

Eichner is repped by WME and 3 Arts Entertainment.
