HitFix is reporting that actor Kieran Culkin has been cast as Wallace Wells in the forthcoming film "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Word," based on the hugely acclaimed Oni Press graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley.
Directed by Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz,"), "Scott Pilgrim" stars Michael Cera ("Arrested Development," "Superbad") as the slacker-in-love title character, who must defeat his beloved Ramona's (Elizabeth Winstead) seven ex-boyfriends in order to truly win her heart.
Culkin's character Wallace Wells is Pilgrim's gay roommate, with whom he shares a bed as a consequence of their dire financial circumstances.
HitFix reports that production on "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" is set to begin this Spring in Toronto.
