Ed Helms Plays With History in Civil War Comedy

Ed Helms as a Civil War re-enactor? It makes me giggle just thinking about it. And that's a good thing, because it's the idea behind The Office star's next movie. As Variety reports:

He and three other guys (two fellow re-enacters and an African-American professor of history who is protesting the event) are accidentally transported back in time and awaken in the actual civil war. Once there, they have find there way home without altering history or permanently breaking America in half.

Helms pitched the idea and is co-writing it with Jake Fleisher. Helms's character is described as "someone who is obsessive about historical precision — stitch count in a coat, buttons from the period, proper speech, etc," which, again, sounds funny and perfect for Helms.

The project also has Steve Carell and former Daily Show correspondent Vance Degeneres along as producers. What do you think about this chance to see Helms in Civil War garb?
