Posted Tuesday January 14, 2014 4:00 PM GMT

Eager to get the production of "How & Why" underway, FX announced Michael Cera and John Hawkes have been added to the cast of its upcoming series on Tuesday (January 14).

The show is about a man who is able to explain the ins and outs of a nuclear reactor and demonstrates that he is very intelligent, but unfortunately lacks common sense outside the office.

"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" writer Charlie Kaufman is set to direct and write the new FX series along with executive producing alongside Anthony Bregman.

John will star as Goodman Hesselman, who the show is primarily centered around, while Michael will play the role as Mendelson, Goodman's new boss.

The production of the new show will begin this spring in North Carolina. Stay linked with GossipCenter on the latest new about FX's "How & Why."
