Teen actor Chase Ellison (“Towelhead,” “Fireflies in the Garden”) has joined the cast of Fox’s family comedy “Tooth Fairy” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Ellison plays the bright and gifted Randy, son to Ashley Judd’s character, who forms a bond with his mom’s minor-league hockey player boyfriend Derek (Dwayne Johnson) whose nickname is “The Tooth Fairy.”
But that bond changes when Derek discourages Randy and is sentenced to act as a real tooth fairy, complete with tutu and wings.
Julie Andrews also stars. Production begins Friday in Vancouver with Michael Lembeck directing.
