FATHER FIGURES

ED HELMS (Peter Reynolds) has established himself as one of Hollywood's most exciting talents as an actor, writer, and comedian, with his scene-stealing roles on the big and small screen.

Helms is currently in production on a comedy special he will topline and produce with Comedy Central, "The Fake News with Ted Nelms," that will feature absurd, made-up news that closely resembles real news, delivered by an absurd, made-up guy who closely resembles Helms. Additionally, Helms recently wrapped production on Jeff Tomsic's feature comedy "Tag," opposite Jeremy Renner, Isla Fisher, and Jon Hamm. The film is based on a story by Russell Adams published by The Wall Street Journal in 2013, titled "Tag, He's 'It' for Another Year," about a group of friends who have been playing a cutthroat version of the children's game for the last 30 years. It is slated for release on June 15, 2018.

Additionally, Helms will be seen in a handful of buzzworthy independent films, including John Curran's meticulous Ted Kennedy docudrama "Chappaquiddick," opposite Jason Clarke and Kate Mara, which premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival; and Dito Montiel's "The Clapper," with Amanda Seyfried, on which he also serves as a producer, set to release in early 2018.

Helms is best known for his standout performances in a diverse compilation of projects, including his prolific work as a correspondent on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"; his memorable role as Andy Bernard on NBC's critically acclaimed comedy "The Office," alongside fellow "Daily Show" alum Steve Carell; and striking gold with his leading comedic role in the "Hangover" trilogy alongside Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis, which collectively grossed nearly $1.5 billion worldwide.

Helms' recent credits include David Soren's adaptation of Davy Pilkey's popular children's book, Captain Underpants, opposite Kevin Hart and Nick Kroll; Lake Bell's "I Do...Until I Don't"; Jessie Nelson's "Love the Coopers," opposite Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, and John Goodman; and "Vacation," opposite Christina Applegate from duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. He also served as an executive producer on Netflix's film adaptation of Josh Karpe's bestselling novel "A Futile & Stupid Gesture," as well as the box office hit "Central Intelligence," starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.

His other notable film credits include David Wain's satirical romantic comedy "They Came Together," the Duplass Brothers' comedy "Jeff, Who Lives at Home," Miguel Arteta's "Cedar Rapids," Chris Renaud's beloved "The Lorax," and Rawson Marshall Thurber's "We Are the Millers." Helms has also appeared on numerous noteworthy series, including Fox's cult comedy "Arrested Development," Adult Swim's "NTSF:SD: SUV," and the Yahoo original series created by Helms, "Tiny Commando."

Additionally, Helms has successfully produced a diverse slate of projects through his production venture, The Pacific Electric Picture Company, which he formed with Mike Falbo. The company has an array of films in the works, including Jonathan Krisel's comedy "Mermaids in Paradise," Armando Bo's drama "Stand By," starring Jack Huston and Bel Powley; and "Epic Fail," a comedy from producer Nicky Weinstock, who co-developed the original idea with Helms. Beyond acting and producing, Helms has worked closely with Malaria No More, a nonprofit organization at the vanguard of the fight to eradicate malaria worldwide. He also sits on the advisory board for Education Through Music LA, which builds curriculum and funds music education in LA public schools.
