Are everyone’s favorite cater waiters coming to the silver screen? Maybe. In an interview with the Huffington Post, star Lizzie Caplan indicated that at least the cast of “Party Down” is very interested in the possibility of completing the story arcs left open at the end of the much loved show’s final season.
After two seasons and twenty episodes, fans of the hilarious Hollywood-skewering comedy were outraged when “Party Down” was cancelled. The show followed the staff of a catering company as they worked the parties of the Hollywood elite and grappled with their dreams in a reality filled with crudite. The show was hilarious yet thoughtful and the cancellation of the critically acclaimed show was a surprise. Based on the interview with Caplan, it sounds like the cast was unhappy with the cancellation, too, and not just because it put the show’s stars out of work. Rather Caplan claims she really loved the show. But this love and the fans who are just discovering the workplace comedy are part of the reason that a movie has a shot at happening. Caplan said, “People are finding out about it now, it seems like, which is great, because I think it will have legs and hopefully become more of a cult thing, which will encourage us to make a lovely feature film.”
The timing may be challenging though as the talented cast has moved on with their careers. Adam Scott is busy starring on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, Jane Lynch is on Fox’s “Glee,” and Ryan Hansen just wrapped “Friends with Benefits” a forthcoming mid-season replacement on NBC. It would also do a lot to promote the Martin Starr Full Employment Act for the former “Freaks & Geeks” star. Caplan remains optimistic about the movie’s chances. In the interview she said of making a film. “People are busy with their television shows and whatnot, but it’s definitely something that we all want to do, so I think we’ll do everything we can to make it happen.” Fingers crossed, fans.
