Don Johnson Will Offer Fatherly Advice To Cameron Diaz In The Other Woman image
Director Nick Cassavetes is building quite the squad for his upcoming revenge comedy The Other Woman. Though some additions like Nicki Minaj and Kate Upton seem to be strange forms of stunt casting, I’m sure Cassavetes can get a couple of winning performances out of them, even if straight comedy features aren’t exactly in the guy’s wheelhouse.

Now in steps Don Johnson, who has become a dependable co-star to have in the last few years, with memorable roles on HBO’s Eastbound & Down and in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete a few years ago, not to mention his hilarious turn as Big Daddy in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. He’s come quite a long ways since the days of Miami Vice. And Nash Bridges for that matter.

Though it isn’t clear how Johnson will directly tie into the plot of The Other Woman, he’ll play Cameron Diaz’s father, a ladies man who dates women half his age, as is typical for actors in their sixties to do on and off the screen. Al Pacino and Woody Allen characters are frequently guilty of this.

The script, written by newcomer Melissa Stack, follows Diaz as a woman who finds out that her loving boyfriend (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is actually married, and that she is the “other woman” in the relationship. She teams up with his vengeful wife (Leslie Mann) in a plot to turn the tables on him. Perhaps Johnson’s character was guilty of cheating in the past and he’s able to give his daughter tips on how he did things.

The film is currently in production in New York and is set to be released in theaters on April 25, 2014.
