Matt Walsh and Maribeth Monroe Join the Cast of “Keeping Up with the Joneses”
Workaholics’ Maribeth Monroe (Second City Resident Stage Alum) and Veep’s Matt Walsh (Second City Touring Company Alum) are moving into the neighborhood for Fox’s comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses.
Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fischer and Gal Gadot are already onboard for the film, which will be directed by Greg Mattola.
The story, written by Michael LeSieur, centers on a suburban couple who become suspicious of their attractive, seemingly perfect neighbors, who turn out to be undercover agents.
Monroe and Walsh will play another couple living in the neighborhood.
