Ken Marino joins comedy heist film

July 1st, 2014

Ken Marino has been added to the cast of a new comedy heist film.

The 'Wanderlust' actor has signed on to star alongside Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Kristen Wiig in the untitled project formerly known as 'Loomis Fargo', Deadline reports.

The movie follows a simple armoured car guard, played by Galifianakis, who takes the fall for a $20 million heist and goes on the run from the police while tracking double-crossers Steve (Owen), Kelly (Wiig) and the gang of criminals who betrayed him, as they spend their loot on a leading a luxurious lifestyle.

Marino - who will star in the upcoming sitcom 'Marry Me' - will take on the role of rich and uptight neighbour Doug Jeffcoat, who disapproves of Steve and his pals degrading his wealthy neighbourhood.

Kate McKinnon has also joined the cast and will play Galifianakis' ball-busting fiancé, while her 'Saturday Night Live' colleague Leslie Jones will play the detective on the thieves' trail.

Meanwhile, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Mary Elizabeth Ellis will play Steve's cunning and gold-digging wife Michelle with Devin Ratray and Ross Kimball set to portray his loyal henchmen Runny and Eric.

It was reported last week that 'Horrible Bosses' star Jason Sudeikis was also in talks to join the upcoming comedy, which will be directed by Jared Hess, although it's unclear what role he would take on.

The comedy heist is scheduled for release on August 14 2015.
