Just a few days after we got word that Heather Graham would reprise her Hangover role in the upcoming third installment, Variety has informed us that the actress is keeping pretty busy these days. She’s joined the cast of Feed the Dog, an indie comedy — formerly known as Parental Guidance Suggested – which sees Selena Gomez in the starring role.
Tim Garrick has written the script and will be directing the picture, which is based from Ric Browde‘s novel, While I’m Dead… Feed the Dog. Andrew Lazar will be producing through his Mad Chance banner. Graham is also joining Nat Wolff, Austin Stowell, Dylan McDermott, Elisabeth Shue and Cary Elwes.
To get a better sense of the project, aside from its stars, here’s a synopsis of the novel via Amazon:
“‘My publishers are trying to convince me that books are like albums and sell better when they are released posthumously. Seeing the point, I ask if I can at least fake my own death, but it seems that is fundamentally dishonest and they flatly refuse to be involved in any such fraud. So just in case I’ve croaked by the time you read this (and everyone but me is filthy rich), here is my story: one day I’m trying to get into the pants of the most beautiful girl in the world, Nina Pennington, and the next day I’m in the back of a limo on the road to rock’n'roll superstardom opening up for Bowie.
But we hit a bump or two — a few dead Mafia hitmen here, a nyphomaniac next door there, not to mention a few dying Latin teachers, narcoleptic nuns, inept policemen, unscupulous laywers, buffoon reporters, huckster televangelists and greedy relatives — and now for some unknown reason a lot of people don’t want to talk to me anymore.’”
Graham is also set to star in Ramin Bahrani‘s At Any Price, as well as the new indie, About Cherry, which hits theaters September 21st. As for The Hangover Part III? Production (unfortunately) starts up next month.
What do you think of Graham joining Feed the Dog?

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
