Daily Show correspondent on Drugs

Actor/comedian/”Daily Show” correspondent Josh Gad will join Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman for Ed Zwick’s “Love and Other Drugs”, says THR.

The story, which Charles Randolph (“The Interpreter”) adapted from Jamie Reidy’s nonfiction book “Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman.”, follows a salesman (Gyllenhaal) who competes in the cutthroat world of pharmaceuticals to hawk a male performance enhancement drug and enters into a relationship with a woman (Hathaway) with Parkinson’s disease. Gad has been cast as Gyllenhaal’s brother, a vulgar but successful dot-com entrepreneur who moves in with Gyllenhaal.

Gad’s film credits include “21″ and “The Rocker”.
