Jack Black, Rob Corddry Added to ‘Sex Tape’ Cast
The cast for Jake Kasdan’s Sex Tape is coming to together, with Jack Black and Rob Corddry added to the cast according to reports from The Wrap. The film stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, both of whom starred in Kasdan’s box office hit Bad Teacher. Diaz and Segel play parents who try to spice up their marriage by making a sex tape, only to find the next day that the tape is lost. Corddry plays a loyal friend and Black plays the CEO of a porn company.
The casting of Corddry as the second banana is a good one as he excels in these roles (see: The Heartbreak Kid). Black’s role is said to be of the cameo variety, though I don’t have any hesitation spoiling it here since I have no doubt Black will be featured in the trailers for the film. Black and Segel costarred in Gulliver’s Travels which did excellent box office internationally.
It’s nice to see Kasdan’s career on the upswing again. I was very disappointed by the tepid response for Kasdan’s epic comedic musical Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Kasdan previously directed Black in Walk Hard as well as Orange County. Sex Tape is slated to shoot this fall.
