Coming off rave reviews at Sundance for her performance in the alcoholism drama "Smashed," we had hoped that Mary Elizabeth Winstead's career would begin to broaden beyond the genre parts she always seems to get. And while her first booking post-Park City was in the psychological thriller "The Darkness" from "The Last Exorcism" director Daniel Stamm, this latest gig is exactly the change of pace we were hoping for.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Coming off rave reviews at Sundance for her performance in the alcoholism drama "Smashed," we had hoped that Mary Elizabeth Winstead's career would begin to broaden beyond the genre parts she always seems to get. And while her first booking post-Park City was in the psychological thriller "The Darkness" from "The Last Exorcism" director Daniel Stamm, this latest gig is exactly the change of pace we were hoping for.

Winstead will join the awesome trio of Adam Scott, Jane Lynch and Richard Jenkins in "A.C.O.D." which stands for Adult Children Of Divorce. "Lights Out" writer Stuart Zicherman is directing from a script he co-wrote with Ben Karlin ("The Daily Show," "Modern Family") that centers on Carter (Scott), a man scarred by his parents' divorce, who's forced to reunite them when his brother gets engaged. Jenkins plays Scott's father, while Lynch will play Dr. Judith, an author and therapist who used to treat Carter, who comes back to her for advice. Winstead will play Scott's girlfriend, the foundation in his life that is slowly going out of control.

No word yet on an exact start date, but we presume once Scott wraps up "Parks & Recreation" for the year he'll get to this before heading off to join Ben Stiller in "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty." [Deadline]
