Variety reports that Steve Buscemi and Dan Ackroyd have joined the cast of the forthcoming Adam Sandler film I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, which spoofs "gay marriage":
Steve Buscemi and Dan Aykroyd have joined the cast of the Adam Sandler-Kevin James comedy "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" at Universal.
The Dennis Dugan-directed laffer, most recently scripted by Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor, is about two straight, single Philadelphia firefighters who pretend to be a gay couple to qualify for domestic partner benefits. Buscemi will play a city worker from financial services who’s determined to expose the pair as cheats.
That sounds like a funny idea.
