Romany Malco of Showtime's Weeds and 'The 40 Year Old Virgin" joins Mike Meyes, Jessica Alba, and Verne Troyer in the Paramount comedy, "The Love Guru".
The story is about an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. Myers will play the lead role of Pitka, who moves back to the U.S. to seek fame and fortune in the world of self-help and spirituality, specializing in settling intimacy issues between couples.His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle a rift between star hockey player Darren Roanoke (Malco) and his estranged wife. After the split, Roanoke's wife starts dating the star member of a rival team, sending her husband into a major professional skid -- to the horror of the team's owner, Jane Bullard (Alba), and Coach Cherkov (Troyer).
Production begins next month in Toronto for a June 20th release.
