In the show, Illeana and other celebrity guest stars will don the yellow and blue as employees at IKEA's Burbank, CA location. According to a release by SXM, the production company behind the web-series, you'll see things such as "Jeff Goldblum doing a 10 minute improv monologue to a growing crowd of shoppers or Robert Patrick doing a scene with a real-time family chosen from within the store..."
For many celebrities, pulling hard to pronounce Swedish furniture from isles and bins might not be a walk in the park (welcome to normal life!) but Illeana's no stranger to retail work. In 2004 she played herself as an actress who quits acting to work at a supermarket. The appropriatly titled show, Supermaket, became an internet hit. Now she's back to repeat the success with IKEA.
The 10-episode, scripted series will air late September on several video sites including YouTube and Daily Motion. Aside from Illeana, look for guest-stars Jeff Goldblum, Justine Bateman, Tom Arnold, Robert Patrick, Ed Begley Jr. And Greg Proops.
