Favreau, McGraw, Yoakam Make Four

Actor/director Jon Favreau along with country music stars Tim McGraw and Dwight Yoakam are joining New Line Cinema’s romantic comedy “Four Christmases” says Reuters.

Favreau and McGraw will play Dallas and Denver, respectively, two bullying siblings who delight in tormenting their brother, Brad (Vince Vaughn), during the holidays.

Yoakam will play Pastor Phil, the overly zealous partner of Brad’s new wife Kate’s (Reese Witherspoon) mother (Mary Steenburgen). He persuades the young couple to act in his church’s nativity play, one of many chaotic events during their visits to different sets of parents.

Sissy Spacek, Kristin Chenoweth and Robert Duvall also star. Seth Gordon directs the project which will be released next Christmas.
