The upcoming Netflix action comedy, Coffee & Kareem, has added a few more cast members.
The first announcement of the film included the casting of Taraji P. Henson and Ed Helms. The film’s logline was revealed as well: A Detroit cop reluctantly teams with his girlfriend’s 11-year-old son to clear his name and take down the city’s most ruthless criminal.
Now, RonReaco Lee, Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, relative newcomer Terrence Little Gardenhigh and GLOW star Betty Gilpin have joined the film. Their roles were not revealed, but it can be presumed that Gardenhigh will portray Kareem, Henson’s son.
The script was written by Shane McCarthy and appeared on the 2014 Black List. Michael Dowse, who directed the Fox comedy Dowser, will direct the film.
Lee, who garnered critical acclaim for his role in Survivor’s Remorse, can be seen next in Tracy Y. Oliver’s First Wives Club series at BET. Bachelor continues to stay with Netflix after appearing in To All The Boys I Loved Before and he’s also set for the upcoming film Rim of the World.
