Good news for Nasim Pedrad fans! The Saturday Night Live alum Pedrad, Mudbound star Jason Mitchell and Orange Is the New Black actress Danielle Brooks are in talks to star in Netflix’s romantic comedy Desperados, as first reported by Collider.
Pedrad, who was born on November 18th, 1981 in Tehran, will soon be seen as a new character in Disney’s live-action Aladdin movie, playing a neurotic woman who takes her friends (including Brooks) to Mexico to thwart a hateful e-mail she accidentally sent to her new, perfect near-boyfriend, who is in the hospital there. During her trip, she keeps running into a terrible recent blind date (Mitchell) who maybe isn’t so terrible after all. Pedrad has also finished work on Patrick Brice’s horror-comedy Corporate Animals, which stars Ed Helms and Demi Moore.
