Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari partner again for comedy

Posted on

There must be a true bromance going on between Aziz Ansari (Parks & Recreation) and Danny McBride (Pineapple Express). The two comedic actors are attached to star in an untitled comedy based on an idea by Ansari and 30 Rock writer Matt Hubbard. The comedy is being written by Parks & Recreation scribe Harris Wittels, though the plot line is being kept under wraps. This pairing marks the second project being developed by Mandate Pictures’ deal with Rough House, the production banner co-founded by David Gordon Green, Jody Hill and McBride. It’s also the second time Ansari and McBride are starring opposite each other. The duo are also co-starring in the comedy 30 Minutes or Less for Columbia Pictures, directed by Ruben Fleisher (Zombieland).
