Cast Added To Universal Comedy "Paul"
Looking more and more exciting. Whats weird is, I find everyone on that top list to be really funny. I'm really surprised by looking at the cast and that this is not another Judd Apatow production film. No it also ain't the third and final film in the "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" which consists of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Its looking more like a separate film that just happens to star some of the most funniest people in Hollywood. Ill be keeping a good eye on this.
