Andy Garcia is joining the force…
The 57-year-old Cuban actor has been cast in 20th Century Fox’s Let’s Be Cops, an action comedy starring Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson.
The Luke Greenfield-directed picture will also star The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev and James D’Arcy.
Let’s Be Cops centers on two friends (Wayans and Johnson) who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms, giving their lives a boost and some fun. However, they run into trouble when they cross a dangerous Russian mobster.
Garcia will play a seasoned detective who inadvertently becomes the boss of the two wannabes.
The film is scheduled to begin shooting in Atlanta this summer.
It’s Garcia’s first studio movie since 2007’s Ocean’s Thirteen. He’s been acting and producing more character-driven projects like his starrer Middleton, which also stars Vera Farmiga.
