Brett Ratner’s comedy Tower Heist continues to add more faces to its already star-studded cast. Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, and Judd Hirsch are set to join Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe, Michael Peña and the recently announced Téa Leoni in the action-comedy, which is being produced by Brian Grazer from a Jeff Nathanson script. This will be Broderick’s first major role since 2009’s Wonderful World, and it’s a big change-of-pace for Affleck who recently starred in the dark, controversial drama The Killer Inside Me.
According to Deadline and THR, Broderick will play Chase Fitzhugh, a Wall Street tycoon who joins a gang of disgruntled employees attempting to break into the high rise of their former boss (played by Alda). Affleck, meanwhile, will play a “straight arrow” buddy of Stiller, intent on turning the group over to the police. No word yet on who Hirsch will play. Filming is set to commence in November for a 2011 release.
