Funny man Jason Sudeikis will join the cast of the political comedy “Dog Fight,” which also stars Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. The comedy is about rival Congressional candidates in South Carolina. Sudeikis is a comedian on the long-running “Saturday Night Live.” He has appeared in several comedies this year including “Horrible Bosses,” “Hall Pass,” and “A Gold Old Fashioned Orgy.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, actresses Sarah Baker ("In Gayle We Trust," "Free Radio")and Katherine Lanasa ("Alfie," "Valentine's Day") also joined the cast of the film. The film will be directed by Jay Roach ("Meet the Parents," "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery"). The screenwriters are Shawn Harwell ("Eastbound & Down") and Chris Henchy ("The Other Guys"). “Dog Fight” will be distributed by Warner Brothers. The production will begin shooting in New Orleans around mid-November. It is scheduled for a theater release date of August next year.Source: The »

Jason Sudeikis Joins Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in Dog Fight

24 October 2011 1:58 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Jason Sudeikis has joined Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in Jay Roach's political comedy Dog Fight.  The movie, formerly titled Southern Rivals, is about rival politicians (Ferrell and Galifianakis) in a small congressional district in South Carolina (hence the original title).  THR doesn't say what role Sudeikis will play but hopefully it won't be the smarmy lothario he played three times this year (Hall Pass, Horrible Bosses, and A Good Old Fashioned Orgy).  The film also stars Sarah Baker (In Gayle We Trust) and Katherine Lanasa (Valentine's Day).  Filming is set to begin in mid-November in New Orleans for an August 2012 release. While it's encouraging that Shawn Harwell (Eastbound & Down) and frequent Ferrell collaborator Chris Henchy (The Other Guys) wrote the script, I'm wary of Roach.  He botched the dark comedy in Dinner for Schmucks, but maybe he'll fare better at politics since he directed the election dramas Recount and the upcoming Game Change. »
