Parrish on 'Paper Man' route
EmptyHunter Parrish, one of the stars of the Broadway musical "Spring Awakening," has joined the cast of Michelle and Kieran Mulroney's "Paper Man."
The coming-of-middle-age comedy chronicles the unlikely friendship between a failed author (Jeff Daniels) and a Long Island high school girl (Emma Stone) who teaches him about growing up, all under the disapproving eye of his long-suffering wife and imaginary superhero friend.
Parrish will play the girl's 18-year-old working-class boyfriend.
The cast also includes Ryan Reynolds and Lisa Kudrow.
Producing are FilmColony's Richard Gladstein; Guymon Casady of Film 360, the film production arm of Management 360; and Artfire's Art Spigel and Ara Katz. Production began last week in New York.
Parrish, repped by Endeavor and Management 360, is onstage as Melchior in "Spring Awakening," which last year won the Tony for best musical. Onscreen, he will appear opposite Zac Efron in "17 Again" and stars on Showtime's "Weeds."
