Sheedy & Blonsky Comfort Harold

Ally Sheedy, Colin Quinn and Nikki Blonsky will join the cast of teen comedy “Harold” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Rhonda (Blonsky) is the nerdy best friend of balding teen Harold (Spencer Breslin). Sheedy plays the mother who helps her prematurely aging son cope with incessant teasing.

Quinn plays Reedy, a drunken barfly who’s a regular at a strip club Harold frequents. Cuba Gooding Jr., one of the film’s producers, plays a school janitor who befriends the troubled title character.

Filming just began in Great Neck, New York.
