Parrish, according to Reuters, will play the working-class boyfriend of a high school student portrayed by Emma Stone. He joins a cast that also includes Jeff Daniels, Ryan Reynolds and Lisa Kudrow.

Michelle and Kieran Mulroney penned "Paper Man," which is described as a "coming-of-middle-age feature [that] chronicles the unlikely friendship between a failed author (Jeff Daniels) and a Long Island high school girl (Emma Stone) who teaches him about growing up, all under the disapproving eye of his long-suffering wife and his imaginary superhero friend."

Parrish, who is best known for his work on the Showtime series "Weeds," will also be seen opposite Zac Efron in the upcoming comedy "17 Again."
