Kristen Wiig joins ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ revival

Posted on January 29, 2015 and filed under Wet Hot American Summer

Another new project has been announced for Kristen! Along with Chris Pine, Jon Hamm and Jason Schwartzman, Kristen Wiig has joined the star-studded cast of Netflix’s limited series Wet Hot American Summer. She is signed on for either a guest starring or recurring role in the eight-part series, a Netflix spokeswoman confirmed to TheWrap. The series is based on the 2001 film of the same name, which has since garnered a cult following. They will join many of the original cast, including Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Christopher Meloni and David Hyde-Pierce.

Hamm is expected to play a secret spy; Wiig, a preppy counselor at rival Camp Tigerclaw, while Pine’s character is described as “mysterious.” Michael Showalter and David Wain — who wrote the movie — will also helm the series. Wain will direct and Showalter will serve as showrunner. The original film was set on the last day of a fictional Jewish summer camp in 1981, while the series is set on the first day.
