Vartan & Cross Get Demoted

Michael Vartan and David Cross have joined Parallel Zide’s new comedy “Demoted” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Vartan will play Rodney McAdams, a hotshot Treadline Tires sales associate who delights in tormenting his less-than-cool colleague, Ken (Cross).

But when their boss suddenly dies, Ken is promoted and assigns Rodney to a secretarial job as payback, giving the male chauvinist a taste of his own medicine.

J.B. Rogers (American Pie 2) will direct from a screenplay by Dan Callahan. Shooting begins September 2nd in Michigan.
