Amy has been cast in The Best and the Brightest , an independent comedy starring Neil Patrick Harris, which is currently in production:
Moving from Delaware to New York City, a young couple seeks to get their tyke into a prestigeous private kindergarden.Â With only one placement available at the top school in the city, the couple, along with the help of a conniving “educational consultant,” design an elaborate scheme and take on new personas in order to convince both the high-profile school donors, which include a Senator and her celebrity husband, and the school’s headmaster to admit their child.

Also starring are Bonnie Somerville, John Hodgman, Peter Serafinowicz, Bridget Regan, Kate Mulgrew and Christopher McDonald. You can read more about it at The Hollywood Reporter .
Ed note : I’ve read the script for this, and it seems like it could be a pretty fun movie. Amy has a sizeable supporting role as the educational consultant, and I’d actually say that she’s one of the main characters.
