In Manure (we never thought we'd write that), Helms will portray a womanizing manure peddler. The story focuses on a trio of manure salesmen in 1960s America.

For Night at the Museum 2, look for Helms as a co-worker of the main character, played by Ben Stiller.

Like Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert before him, Ed Helms got his start as a fake reporter on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He went on to portray the character of Andy on The Office and is starting to build a film resume, as well. The actor was born in Atlanta and also does a decent amount of voiceover work.
