Ben Kingsley, Meagan Good, and John Oliver have become the latest addition in the cast of Mike Myers’ comedy "The Love Guru."
Completing the starry cast lineup in "The Love Guru", Ben Kingsley, Meagan Good, and John Oliver have all given their commitment to take part in the Mike Myers-starrer comedy, which most recently signed pop star Justin Timberlake in.
Here Kingsley reportedly will fill in the role of Guru Tugginmypudha, the ashram leader who teaches Myers’ character how to love himself and how to wear a chastity belt. Good, in the meantime, is billed as Prudence, the estranged wife of Toronto Maple Leafs player Darren Roanoke who leaves him for his French-Canadian hockey nemesis, Jacques Grande, played by Timberlake.
As for Oliver, known to be the correspondent on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart", the comedian will portray manager Dick Pants, whose goal is to get the Love Guru on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to settle a rivalry between his client and Deepak Chopra. Other cast members such as Jessica Alba and Verne Troyer have already been assigned for the role of Maple Leafs manager and the team’s coach, respectively.
Filming is said to begin this Friday, September 7 in Toronto, Canada for a June 20, 2008 release. Marco Schnabel is in charge to helm based on script written by Graham Gordy and Myers with the latter also producing alongside Michael De Luca and Donald J. Lee Jr. for Spyglass Entertainment and Paramount Pictures.
