By on January 30, 2015


The cast is rounding out for Netflix’s revived series “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” as four new cast members have been added. The show is a prequel series to the 2001 cult-comedy film, Wet Hot American Summer. 

It was already announced that the entire original cast of the film was returning for series including Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, Christopher Meloni, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poheler, Paul Rudd, and more. However, according to Deadline, Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, Star Trek‘s Chris Pine, SNL/Bridesmaids’ Kristen Wiig and Scott Pilgrim/Rushmore‘s Jason Schwartzman have also signed on to join the cast.

Reportedly Hamm is going to play a “secret spy” while Wiig is playing a snobby counselor at the preppy rival camp Camp Tigerclaw. Schwartzman is the boy’s camp head counselor while Pine’s character is “mysterious.”

An official release date for the Netflix original series has not been announced.
