Jayma Mays (“Epic Movie”) will play the love interest of Kevin James in the upcoming comedy formerly known as “Mall Cop” for Happy Madison Productions says The Hollywood Reporter.
The comedy is about a security guard (James) who is thrust into action when the mall he patrols is taken over by highly organized thieves. Mays plays the owner of a hair-extensions kiosk at the mall.
Keir O’Donnell (“Wedding Crashers”) also joins the cast as fellow security guard Veck, who eventually turns on his colleague. Shirley Knight, Raini Rodriguez, Stephen Rannazzisi and Adam Ferrara also star.
“Daddy Day Care” director Steve Carr is helming the project. James penned the script with Nick Bakay and Steve Pink polished the screenplay. Filming is set to begin this month in Boston.
