Though already quite funny on his own, Ben Stiller has always been very smart about surrounding himself with other top-shelf players, not only taking the entire pressure of carrying a movie off his shoulders, but earning big comic rewards from the chemistry of collaboration. And that is certainly bearing out for "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty." Kristin Wiig, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt and Shirley MacLaine are already all signed up, and now another very funny lady is adding her talents as well.

Kathryn Hahn

Though already quite funny on his own, Ben Stiller has always been very smart about surrounding himself with other top-shelf players, not only taking the entire pressure of carrying a movie off his shoulders, but earning big comic rewards from the chemistry of collaboration. And that is certainly bearing out for "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty." Kristin Wiig, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt and Shirley MacLaine are already all signed up, and now another very funny lady is adding her talents as well.

The awesome and hilarious Kathryn Hahn is joining the Stiller-directed remake, and even if you don't know her by name, you probably recognize her face from her long running stint on "Crossing Jordan" or more recently for stealing scenes in everything from "Wanderlust" to "Our Idiot Brother" to "Step Brothers." And though her NBC series "Free Agents" didn't take off, she has recently been doing a pretty solid arc on "Parks & Recreation" as the big bucks campaign manager -- who couldn't care less about a small town election -- brought in to take down Leslie Knope. In 'Mitty,' Hahn will play Stiller's "flighty sister" who is taking charge of getting their mother (Maclaine) into a retirement home.

Also coming aboard is "The Good Wife" star Josh Charles, though no word yet on his role. But 'Mitty' is shaping up pretty nicely, and goes in front of cameras this month. [THR/Deadline]
