‘Scary Movie 5′ Adds Comedian Katt Williams to the Cast
‘Scary Movie 5‘ has been scaring up quite the controversial cast, with troublemakers Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen and Mike Tyson already on board — but now they’ve got a new bad boy to add to the cast list: comedian Katt Williams.
THR reports that Williams has joined the cast of ‘Scary Movie 5,’ the fifth installment — if you didn’t glean that from the title — of the spoof-y horror franchise. Williams joins fellow law-breakers Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Mike Tyson in the film, coming hot off a recent arrest for allegedly pulling a gun on Faizon Love.
Regardless of his recent legal troubles, Williams is a solid addition to an already questionable roster of stars, which also includes Ashley Tisdale, Heather Locklear and Kate Walsh. Williams is best known for his stand-up talents, which have been featured on BET, MTV and Comedy Central. He also appeared as Money Mike in ‘Friday After Next’ and has starred in music videos for Lil Jon, The Game, Lil’ Kim, Ludacris, T.I. and Outkast.
‘Scary Movie 5′ has already begun filming, with Lohan and Sheen satirizing themselves in the meta opening sequence in which they will both die.
The film, directed by Malcolm D. Lee and written by spoof-pro David Zucker and Pat Proft, hits theaters on April 12, 2013.
