Ben Kingsley, Meagan Good and John Oliver have joined the Mike Myers-lead Paramount Pictures comedy “The Love Guru” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Kingsley plays Guru Tugginmypudha, the ashram leader who teaches the title character (Myers) how to love himself and how to wear a chastity belt.
Good plays Prudence, the woman who leaves Toronto Maple Leafs player Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco) for his French-Canadian hockey nemesis, Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake).
Oliver plays manager Dick Pants, whose goal is to get the Love Guru on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to settle a rivalry between his client and Deepak Chopra.
Jessica Alba plays the Maple Leafs manager, who enlists the Love Guru’s services to restore Roanoke’s mojo after Prudence betrays him. Verne Troyer plays the team coach.
Marco Schnabel will direct “Love Guru” from a screenplay by Graham Gordy and Myers. Shooting begins this Friday in Toronto.
