Update: THR provides another casting update, telling us that Marcia Gay Harden will play “a demanding vice president at an executive placement firm.”

Dylan Kidd (Roger Dodger) is now underway on his third feature, Get a Job, previously summarized as a “multi-generational comedy about four recent college graduates who discover that their lofty expectations and the realities of adulthood are two very different things.” Our last report on the picture was a big cast confirmation — Bryan Cranston, Miles Teller (Project X), Anna Kendrick, Nicholas Braun, Alison Brie, Brandon T. Jackson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Jay Pharoah had all signed on — and our latest news follows in those footsteps.

Last night, Mintz-Plasse made a discreet tweet (rhyme possibly intended) and let it be known that John Cho (Harold & Kumar, Star Trek) has been brought on to the film, presumably to share some of his comedic stylings. Anything about his character or the extent of the role were not shared — despite our best wishes, that is — but it’s nevertheless nice to hear.

You can also check out some set photos tweeted by Mintz-Plasse, featuring Teller, Braun, and Jackson (via Collider):

Moving on, Variety has news that Carlos Miranda (Warrior) will be coming on board Sofia Coppola‘s quickly-assembling The Bling Ring. This makes him only one of multiple talents in on the picture, with the cast already being led by Emma Watson, Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, and Georgia Rock.

Based on the Vanity Fair story The Suspects Wore Louboutins, Bling Ring focuses on a nefarious group of teenage girls who, in real-life instances, “stole thousands to millions of dollars worth of belongings from celebrities such as Paris HiltonOrlando BloomRachel Bilson and Lindsay Lohan.” Shooting is expected to commence in the next few months, making a 2013 release the likely target.

Do you see either addition making an impact on the overall film? How do you feel about the projects themselves?
