Anna Faris is becoming quite the in-demand comedy actress with the success of Scary Movie 4. She’s joining the cast of Mama’s Boy, playing the guitar-twanging love interest of Jon Heder.

Heder plays a slacker whose easy, breezy life is threatened when his mother (Diane Keaton) falls in love with a motivational speaker (Jeff Daniels). The previously announced film has a script by Hank “Saving Silverman” Nelken and a megaphone slinger in the form of shorts director Tim Hamilton. Oh, and it has a shooting start date of mid-June in Los Angeles.

Faris has just finished a stint on My Super-Ex Girlfriend, starring as Uma Thurman’s nemesis and is currently at work on indie drug comedy Smiley Face.
