Ed Helms is a Talented Fellow

This is what it looks like when a creative person finds a hot streak.

I have always liked Ed Helms, and I think he has a great deal of potential as a person who can make films and do television and not embarrass himself or become painful to watch. One of his best moments, anywhere, was when he punched the wall in (Season 3?) the offices of Dunder Mifflin and had to go seek anger management counseling. There was a sharp turn in the tone of the episode, and Helms uncorked a great deal of rage. His performance was spot-on, and Steve Carell found his inner thespian and responded accordingly. That was when I definitely knew that The Office was no throwaway, and I am glad they kept Helms.

But, really now. A film with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis? How bad is that going to suck?
