Ed Helms (the preppy guy from NBC's The Office) is saddling up for a Civil War film produced by Steve Carell, in which Helms is a re-enacter who gets sent back in time to the actual Civil War, with an African-American professor who is protesting the re-enactment. I'm just guessing the two of them have to learn how to "work together" to get themselves out of trouble. [Variety]
