The Anchorman alum is set to play Scout Leader Rogers in the horror comedy from director/co-writer Christopher Landon. Paramount’s Scouts Vs. Zombies follows a group of — you guessed it — Boy Scouts who try to fend off a — how’d you know? — zombie attack in their small town. David Koechner joins a cast that also includes Joseph Morgan, Tye Sheridan and Logan Miller. Andy Fickman, Todd Garner, Bryan Brucks and Betsy Sullenger. Shooting is set to begin May 8. Koechner played sportscaster Champ Kind in the Anchorman movies and his credits also include The Office, American Dad! and a recent sketch comedy pilot for NBC that’s not going forward. He is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
