The cast of Tammy continues to grow. On Friday we reported that Allison Janney had signed up to star alongside Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and Mark Duplass. Now Dan Aykroyd has joined the movie, according to Variety.
The movie is about Tammy (McCarthy), who loses her job at a fast food restaurant and discovers her husband is cheating on her at the same time. She decides to take a road trip with her profane, whiskey-swilling grandmother (Sarandon). Dan Aykroyd is set to play the father of Mark Duplass’ character, who encounters Tammy and her grandmother on their road trip.
Melissa McCarthy is set to direct with her husband Ben Falcone, from a script they both wrote together. The shoot is scheduled to begin next month.
