Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins and “Glee” star Jane Lynch in the cast of indie comedy “A.C.O.D.”, according to Deadline. Scott plays Carter, an A.C.O.D. (Adult Child of Divorce), who’s been caught in the middle of his parents’ nasty divorce for over 20 years. When his brother gets engaged, the feud between the exes intensifies and things spiral out of control. Jenkins plays the dad, Lynch plays Scott’s psychiatrist and Winstead will be Lauren, his longtime girlfriend and “the rock in his increasingly chaotic life.” Stuart Zicherman and and Ben Karlin wrote the script, and Zicherman will direct.

Comedy is a bit of a new direction for Winstead, who is quite a veteran of the horror genre, having starred in the likes of “Final Destination 3″, “Black Christmas”, “The Thing”, and this summer, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” But critics are calling her performance in dark Sundance comedy “Smashed” her best performance ever, and she also recently completed a role in Roman Coppola’s totally absurd sounding “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III”, starring Charlie Sheen and loosely based on the volatile actor’s real life antics. She is also set to return to her favorite genre in horror flick “The Darkness.”
