Middleditch takes ‘Road to Nardo’

'Hangover' scribe Armstrong to make feature helming debut

Exclusive: Just weeks after being named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch, Thomas Middleditch (“Splinterheads”) has landed the title role in Columbia Pictures’ comedy “Road to Nardo.”

“The Hangover” scribe Scot Armstrong will make his feature directing debut with the film, which follows two roommates who go to great lengths to save their friend Nardo, who’s naked and stranded in Mexico.

Neal Moritz, Ravi Nandan and Armstrong are producing the project, which also stars TJ Miller (“Yogi Bear”) as one of the two friends.

Project marks the second studio pic Middleditch has booked in the past month, as director Josh Schwartz recently cast him alongside Victoria Justice in Paramount’s “Fun Size.” Thesp, who regularly performs at the UCB Theatre and in College Humor videos, just wrapped Paul Weitz’s adaptation of Nick Flynn’s memoir “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” for Focus Features.

Middleditch is repped by WME and Kirsten Ames Management.
