A Sam Rockwell-Ben Schwartz Comedy is Coming Your Way

Sam Rockwell and Ben Schwartz are set to star in and executive produce a new comedy for Searchlight Pictures. Details about the plot are being kept under wraps, according to THR.

Ben, who will write the script, is a Parks and Recreation alum and recently voiced Sonic in Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog. The 38-year-old actor/writer currently stars alongside Thomas Middleditch in the Netflix improv specials, Middleditch & Schwartz.

“I love that beautiful Sammy,” Ben commented. “And [I] cannot wait to write something that will get him stripped of all his fancy awards. This is gonna be a fun one!”

Sam, 51, most recently won a SAG Award for portraying Bob Fosse in FX’s Fosse/Verdon. He next stars in the Broadway revival of David Mamet’s American Buffalo alongside Darren Criss and Laurence Fishburne.
