THE HOUSE just got a whale. Reno 911! and Boondocks star Cedric Yarbrough has joined New Line’s comedy that stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler. Andrew Jay Cohen is directing a script that he co-wrote with Brendan O’Brien.
The film follows a couple who gamble away their daughter’s college fund and then start an underground casino in their suburban basement to get it back.
Yarbrough will play Reggie Henderson, a neighbor of the couple and, due to stresses from work and home, a gambling addict.
