David Henrie, Raini Rodriguez, Nicholas Turturro, Eduardo Verastegui and Gary Valentine have joined the cast of PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2. In this followup, Blart attends a security guard expo in Las Vegas with his daughter, where he’s mocked by casino security until he helps them take on a group of dangerous art thieves.
James wrote the script with Nick Bakay. Andy Fickman will direct while Todd Garner and Adam Sandler produce.
Henrie (“Grown Ups 2”, “How I Met Your Mother”) will play Lane, a charming valet attendant with whom Blart’s daughter Maya has a crush on. He’s repped by ICM. Rodriguez will reprise her role as Blart’s daughter, Maya. Turturro (“Blue Bloods”) will play one of Blart’s security guard rivals. Verastegui will play a Vegas hotel owner whose hotel becomes a heist target. Valentine (“The King of Queens”, “Fargo” limited series) will play a sympathetic fellow security guard.
