Hope you're not sick of Seth Rogen just yet... or, for that matter, Jane Lynch, Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader or Arrested Development's Jason Bateman. They'll all be starring in Simon Pegg's new movie, Paul.

Variety reports that Rogen, Lynch, Bateman, Hader and his SNL-comrade Kristen Wiig have all been added to the cast of Paul, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's movie about two fanboys who discover an alien escaped from Area 51 while on a road trip to San Diego Comic-Con. Rogen will be voicing the titular alien, while details of the other actor's characters are being kept under wraps.

The movie, directed by Superbad and Adventureland's Jake Mottola, begins shooting next month.

Can we get a name for all these ugly-slobby-guy guy- people?

I'm tired of referring to them as "Those Forty Year Old Virgin"/Superbad" guys or "A Judd Apatow-type movie".

Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel (the Forgetting Sarah Marshall guy)...

Arguably John C. Reilly, Will Farrell, Michael Cera, John Favreau, Vince Vaughn...

Basically men who are not film- pretty, and not really hillarious, but are huge in film comedies right now.

(and yes, Will Farrell, while he CAN be hilarious, is just as often not).

One suggestion- "The Crap Pack".

Anything but "hipster"- that's way off.
