JUDE LAW JOINS
MELISSA MCCARTHY, JASON STATHAM IN 'SUSAN COOPER'
Well, well, well... Melissa McCarthy's spy comedy SUSAN COOPER is certainly getting more interesting as the casting process goes on: first she was joined two weeks ago by Jason Statham, and now another British heartthrob has been signed too! Jude Law, together with Rose Byrne, will also star in the movie about the adventures of a top female secret agent to be played by McCarthy. Although there are no details on whom Jude and Rose will play, we know that Statham will be her colleague spy with whom she is unwillingly paired up. To hit cinemas May next year, the film will again see Paul Feig (BRIDESMAIDS, THE HEAT) directing a movie with Melissa. You can watch Jude Law this weekend in THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL movie in cinemas.

As 'Deadline' reports, Ryan McPartlin will play Congressman Todd Bishop, an ambitious man whose political life keeps him from home, making him a bit of an absent husband and father.
