CollegeHumor‘s silly videos have entertained many a procrastinator for five- or ten-minute chunks, but now the site’s looking to command people’s attentions for a whole lot longer. The self-proclaimed “comedy leaders” are making their first foray into features this summer with the 87-minute VOD release Coffee Town.
The film features quite an array of TV talents, including director Brad Copeland (Arrested Development) and stars Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny), Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Ben Schwartz (Parks & Recreation), Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights), Jake Johnson (New Girl) and, um, Josh Groban.
Howerton leads the cast as a website manager who uses the titular cafe as his de facto office. When he and his friends (Little and Schwartz) learn of plans to convert the coffee shop into a bar, they try to stop the change by staging a robbery, because movie logic. Groban plays their nemesis, Palicki is Howerton’s love interest, and Johnson shows up as some kind of dead guy.
