He teams up with his brother Jeff (Jason Segel) to spy on his wife, a journey unfolds with all sorts of unintended consequences. It's another fine comic outing from Helms, and we’ll have more from the actor discussing the Duplass project later this week. For now, we hit up Helms on some upcoming project news including the recent rumors that he would be stepping into the shoes of Clark W. Griswold for a “Vacation” reboot and plot details of “The Hangover Part 3.”

Ed Helms, Jeff Who Lives At Home

The Playlist recently caught up with Ed Helms while the actor was out promoting his dramedy “Jeff Who Lives at Home” for the Duplass Brothers. In the film, Helms plays Pat, who is going through a mid-life crisis and believes his wife (Judy Greer) is having an affair. He teams up with his brother Jeff (Jason Segel) to spy on her and a journey unfolds with all sorts of unintended consequences. It's another fine comic outing from Helms, and we’ll have more from the actor discussing the Duplass project later this week. For now, we hit up Helms on some upcoming project news, including the recent rumors that he would be stepping into the shoes of Clark W. Griswold for a “Vacation” reboot and plot details of “The Hangover Part 3.”

While Helms admits to being a big fan of the Chevy Chase classic “Vacation,” he hasn’t a clue where the rumors originated and has not been approached for such a project. “I have no idea where that bubbled up,” Helms told us. “I don’t know where that came from. It’s nothing I know of.”

On the subject of whether developing "The Hangover 3" will center around a plot line involving Alan’s (Zach Galafianakis) escape from a mental institution, Helms wouldn’t say it was untrue. “I will neither confirm nor deny anything about ‘Hangover 3’ other than the fact that we want it to happen,” says Helms. The actor did add that the project isn’t quite ready and, while he’s not ruling out the rumored summer shoot, it’s not on his plate as of this moment. “We’re just not there yet. We’ll have to see what happens.”

We’ve reported on a few promising Helms projects in development over the past little while including a remake of the French comedyLe Mac," an ambitious Civil War time travel comedy and “True North” a high concept identity crisis dramedy. As of now, Helms confirms that all of these projects are moving along as planned, but no confirmations or start dates are set at the moment. “They’re all in very active development and I’m hoping that we get to pull the trigger on one real soon and all of them eventually,” says Helms. “They’re all near and dear and I think that they’re fantastic stories. I’m working with some insanely talented writers. It’s very exciting.”

“Jeff, Who Lives at Homes” opens on March 16th.
