CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - According to the entertainment website www.THR.com, John C. Reilly is joining Ed Helms in "Cedar Rapids," Fox Searchlight's ensemble road-trip comedy that Miguel Arteta is directing.
The story, by Phil Johnston, centers on a wholesome and naive small-town Wisconsin man (Helms) who, when his role model dies, must represent his company at a regional insurance conference in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where his mind is blown by the big-town experience.
Reilly's character also is attending the conference and is a family man who sees the event as a vacation and time to let loose.
Reilly's most recent major feature appearance was in "Step Brothers."
