Matt Lucas To Star in BRIDESMAIDS
Matt Lucas, who recently appeared in “Alice in Wonderland,” has signed on to join the cast of the upcoming comedy film “Bridesmaids.” Paul Feig is directing the film for Universal and the film will be produced by Judd Apatow.
The film follows a maid of honor struggling to please a group of snobby, rich bridesmaids in the days leading up to her best friend’s wedding. Kristen Wiig co-wrote the script for the film and will star in the movie as the maid of honor. Lucas joins a cast that includes Ellie Kemper (“The Office”), Jill Clayburgh (“Dirty Sexy Money”), Chris O’Dowd (“Dinner for Schmucks”), Melissa McCarthy (“The Back-up Plan”) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Reno 911!”). It is unclear at this point what role Lucas will fill in the movie.
The British actor was last seen on the big screen in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Lucas played the role of both Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
