James Marsden Says Welcome To Me

James Marsden

Though the plot finds her as a woman with dissociative identity disorder, and therefore playing several personalities, Kristen Wiig is still getting a little company in indie comedy Welcome To Me. James Marsden, Joan Cusack, Wes Bentley and Alan Tudyk will co-star.

Shira Piven is directing the film from Eliot Laurence’s script, which sees Wiig as a woman who wins the lottery and decides that the money would be best spent creating a talk show. The whole multiple personality issue will likely come in handy for guests.

Adam McKay and Will Ferrell are producing the film, which takes a sideways look at society’s ongoing love affair with fame. The new additions join a cast that already includes Linda Cardellini, Tim Robbins and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Piven started the cameras cranking this week.

Marsden will next be seen in 2 Guns (due August 16), Lee Daniels’ The Butler (its official full title now Warner Bros. has won the legal fight over just The Butler) and Anchorman: The Legend Continues, which hits on December 20. Cusack is back voicing Jessie for TV short Toy Story Of Terror, while Bentley will be in Lovelace and has recently signed aboard Chris Nolan’s Interstellar. Tudyk’s on voice-over duty for Disney’s latest, Frozen, due here December 6.
