Hannah Waddingham Becomes Latest Addition to 'The Fall Guy'
Apple TV+

The 'Ted Lasso' actress is joining Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the classic television series.

AceShowbiz - Hannah Waddingham has been added to the cast of "The Fall Guy". The "Ted Lasso" actress will share screen with Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the upcoming movie.

Director David Leitch is developing a big screen reimagining of the 1980s TV show which starred Lee Majors as a Hollywood stunt man who moonlights as a bounty hunter and now it's been revealed Hannah will be joining the cast alongside previously announced stars Ryan, Emily, and Aaron, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project reunites Taylor-Johnson with his "Bullet Train" director Leitch. Taylor-Johnson will play the movie star who Ryan's stunt man character is doubling for with Emily playing a make-up artist who had been previously romantically involved with the stunt performer. Hannah is set to play a producer on the fictional movie.

It's believed the new movie will focus on the stunt man's Hollywood life rather than his side hustle as a bounty hunter but there's a twist as the stunt man hits a snag when his film star double goes missing. The film is currently shooting in Australia, ahead of a planned March 2024 release date.

Drew Pearce, who worked with Leitch on the "Fast and Furious" spin-off "Hobbs and Shaw", has written the script and serves as an executive producer on the flick while Gosling is also a producer on the project.

The original series aired on ABC from 1981 to 1986 and featured Majors as a Hollywood stunt man who also works as a bounty hunter to make ends meet. Douglas Barr co-starred as his sidekick while Heather Thomas played a fellow stunt performer.
