Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are getting into politics, in their new movie at least, and now they’ve got some extra help as Moviehole reports that Dan Aykroyd has joined the cast of Dog Fight.
The comedy centres on two political rivals (Ferrell and Galifianakis), who are both vying for the same Congressional seat in a small South Carolina district. It isn’t known what character Dan Aykroyd will play, but he joins a cast which also includes Jason Sudeikis, Brian Cox, Dylan McDermott, and John Lithgow.
Jay Roach is directing Dog Fight from a screenplay by Shawn Harwell and Chris Henchy. Production is currently under way in New Orleans.
