Jon Favreau Joins 'IDENTITY THEFT'

ShowBlitz reports that actor turned director Jon Favreau (Swingers, Iron Man) will join the cast of Identity Theft. It seems that pre-production on Jon's next directorial effort Disney's Magic Kingdom has stalled allowing him to take a supporting role. The comedy from director Seth Gordon which stars Jason Bateman and Oscar nominated comedian Melissa McCarthy. Gordon's first fray into feature films was last year's comedy hit Horrible Bosses which seemed to be the first funny performance from Jason Bateman in years. It should be interesting to see who else will fill out the cast. Oddly enough, the very unfunny Amanda Peet (known for box office comedy bombs) is also involved, so this movie could go either way.
