Jackson will play another one of Teller’s best friends who gets work as a day trader and learns that like most people, he has to start at the bottom and work his way up the company ladder.
Bryan Cranston and Anne Kendrick co-star, while Mimi Gianopulos
and Jay Pharaoh
are set for supporting roles.
Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher are producing “Get a Job” through their Double Feature Films banner.
Braun is repped by WME and Levine Okwu Erickson, while CAA and ML Management rep Jackson.
