Actress Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) has signed onto star in the new comedy project The Hand Job. Bill Hader, whose wife Maggie Carey wrote and will direct the movie, revealed the casting news during a recent interview, where he also revealed supporting cast members. Here's what Bill Hader had to say.

"The cast she got for it now is amazing. There's Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Andy Samberg, me... that'll be a cool thing to do together."

The story centers around Aubrey Plaza's character, a recent high-school graduate who tries to broaden her sexual horizons before college. Here's what Bill Hader said about the plot of this new comedy, and where the title comes from.

"It's about her (Aubrey Plaza) playing an type-A, studious girl who graduates high school and hasn't done anything with a guy. The summer before college she decides that she has to find out how to do everything in order to be properly prepared, so she makes a very serious bullet list of everything, like... hand-job, titty-fuck, blow-job, fingering, and just kinda checks one off every time she does it. She's being the aggressor and is very straight-forward about it, like 'Okay, so I'm going to give you a hand-job now.' And the guys are very taken aback about it, especially her straight-laced friends."

The Hand Job is still looking to lock in funding. Production will likely start soon after financing is completely secured, although it isn't clear when that might happen.
