Judd Apatow Adds Newest Member to his Frat Pack Stable of Actors

Judd Apatow has found the next member of his Frat Pack of actors to star in his very successful string of movies.  Apatow is developing an untitled Pee-wee Herman feature for Universal that Paul Reubens is writing with Paul Rust (Inglourious Basterds, I Love You, Beth Cooper). The movie is described as featuring the iconic geek in a road pic built around "a gigantic adventure."

"Let's face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman," Apatow told Daily Variety. "I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens -- who is an extraordinary and groundbreaking actor and writer. It's so great to watch him return with such relevance."

"There is no one like Judd in our business -- he loves comedy with emotion and heart, and he sees what we do as art," Reubens said. "I can't believe I'm getting this opportunity to be working with him."

Judd Apatow is a genious, just an amazing genious.  We can't wait for a new Pee Wee Herman movie.
