Adam Scott on 'A.C.O.D.' and 'hating' 'Parks and Rec' co-star Amy Poehler
Sundance comedy also stars Jane Lynch, Clark Duke and Jessica Alba
"A.C.O.D." may shock longtime viewers of NBC's "Parks and Recreation." In the new indie comedy, "Parks'" romantic leads, Adam Scott and Amy Poehler, hate each other.
Scott made the trek to Sundance for the film's premiere and spoke to HitFix's Dan Fienberg about the film, divorce, Sundance style, and shooting films around his busy "Parks" schedule.
In "Parks and Recreation," Scott and co-star Poehler play lovers, while in "A.C.O.D.," she plays his hated step-mom. The switch could provide a weird, unexpected subtext for the next season of "Parks."
In "A.C.O.D." (an acronym for "Adult Children of Divorce") Scott plays Carter, who participates in a study exploring the issues faced by grown-ups whose parents (Catherine O'Hara and Richard Jenkins) went through a divorce when the subject was a child. Meanwhile, his mom and dad are uncomfortably reunited when his younger brother (Clark Duke) gets married.
"A.C.O.D." also stars a plethora of comedy aces including Jane Lynch, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ken Howard and Jessica Alba.
Miramax will release the film later this year.
