It has been reported that Chris O’Dowd, star of hit comedy TV series IT Crowd, is being lined up to star in the sequel to the comedy Knocked Up. Chris is expected to play an employee at the Indie Music Company that Paul Rudd’s character has set up.
As well as Paul Rudd returning for the sequel, there will also be the familiar faces of Charlyne Yi and Leslie Mann, who appeared in Knocked Up. O’Dowd will join other newcomers including Megan Fox, Albert Brooks and Lena Dunham for the sequel.
Chris O’Dowd revealed that he initially intended to become a serious actor but once he landed his first comedy role, he knew that was the path for him. "I prefer comedy because I love the sound of children laughing and the money's better," joked the Bridesmaids actor.
