Ed Helms shows some 'Intelligence'

Edhelms_theoffice_290 One of the stars of "The Hangover" is about to get a little smarter.

Ed Helms, who also co-stars as Andy Bernard on "The Office," will lead the spy comedy "Central Intelligence," according to Variety. Helms will star as a CIA accountant pressed into active service thanks to the power of Facebook.

Vote for the Nard-Dog and his 'Office' cohorts as television's greatest characters.

Aside from the Facebook plug, the plot sounds an awful like "Office" star Steve Carell's revamp of the spy comedy "Get Smart" (in which a CIA analyst is pressed into active service).

There's no word yet on when production will begin.
