Bruce McGill Joins Kevin Hart And Ice Cube In Cop Comedy Ride Along
Bruce McGill is the one of the best kinds of actor - one of those who just randomly shows up in a bit part of the movie or television show you're watching and just completely disappears into his character after a moment of "where do I know that guy from?" And now he's getting set to put those skills to the test once again in Ride Along.
According to THR, the veteran performer has joined the cast of the cop comedy, which is set to star Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Jay Pharoah, Bryan Callen and Tika Sumpter. Directed by Tim Story (Barbershop, Fantastic Four, Think Like A Man), the movie centers on a mild-mannered schoolteacher (Hart) who is about ready to marry the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately, her police officer brother (Ice Cube) doesn't think too highly of his sister's beau, and in order to try and scare him off decides to take him on the titular "ride along" in an attempt to scare him out of the relationship. Much like he did in movies like Collateral and My Cousin Vinny, McGill will be playing a member of law enforcement, specifically the "hard-nosed lieutenant." The production has already started rolling down in Atlanta and Universal Pictures is planning to release the comedy on January 17, 2014.
While McGill has spent a lot of time on the small screen as of late, playing recurring roles on shows like Rizzoli & Isles and The Cleveland Show, he can currently be seen at your local theater in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln.
