Variety is reporting that new members have joined the cast of Judd Apatow’s spinoff of Knocked Up, set to film this summer. The film follows the characters played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, and previously announce cast include Albert Brooks and Megan Fox. The new cast members include¬†Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture and upcoming HBO show Girls), Charlyne Yi (Paper Hearts, Knocked Up) and Wyatt Russell (Cowboys & Aliens). O’Dowd and Dunham will be playing employees of the record label where Rudd works, with Russell playing a hockey player.

The presence of Yi is interesting, as she will be reprising the role of the stoner girlfriend of the character played by Martin Starr. If Yi is appearing, surely other cast from Knocked Up will appear again… right? ¬†Of course, we’d all love to see Seth Rogen again, and any appearance by Katherine Heigl is sure to be newsworthy.

The film does not have an official title, but is rumored to be called This is Forty. The film is scheduled for release on December 21, 2012.

    I couldn’t see Rogen not being in it he and Rudds character got very close. I PRAY Segel is in this as a rival to Rudd.

    Rogen as a cameo at the least.

    Love Chris O’Dowd. Check out the IT Crowd on Netflix if you haven’t seen it. He’s hilarious.
