Adrianne Palicki is moving to “Coffee Town.” Variety reports the “Friday Night Lights” actress and almost Wonder Woman has landed the female lead in CollegeHumor’s first foray into feature films and will join a cast that already includes Glenn Howerton, Ben Schwartz, Steve Little and Josh Groban in the workplace comedy.
Brad Copeland wrote and will make his feature directorial debut on the film, which follows three friends “who band together when their freeloading existence is threatened.” Palicki plays Howerton’s love interest, a coffee-loving nurse. Filming is set to begin this week in Los Angeles.
Palicki won audiences’ hearts as troubled hometown girl Tyra on critically acclaimed NBC series “Friday Night Lights”, which is churning out some potential movie stars in the likes of Taylor Kitsch and Kyle Chandler. Palicki, though, seemed to have some trouble finding her breakout role, though movies like “Legion” and the titular role on a reboot “Wonder Woman” series had potential. She recently completed the female lead of Lady Jaye in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, out this summer, so here’s hoping this one will stick.
