Cooper and Amy Poehler in “Wet Hot American Summer”

We have fond memories of the 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer—mainly of Bradley Cooper getting busy with Michael Ian Black in a tool shed. Now comes word the American Sniper star will be returning to the part of a gay camp counselor when the WHAS series comes to Netflix.

Set in 1981 during the last day of summer at Camp Firewood, the original film was a sendup of teen sex comedies, with the  counselors busier trying to get laid than minding the campers. Cooper’s character, Ben, was having a torrid summer affair with another counselor, Coop (Black).

Other original cast members slated to return for the eight-episode series include Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks. Some fresh talents are joining the cast as well, including Josh Charles (The Good Wife), John Slattery (Mad Men), Michaela Watkins (Trophy Wife), Randall Park (The Interview‘s Kim Jong-un), Jayma Mays (Glee), Paul Scheer (The League), Rob Huebel (Transparent) and Richard Schiff (The West Wing).

The series is expected to start streaming on Netflix later this year.

Until then, we’ll always have the gifs.
