March 21, 2011 has learned that Dennis Quaid has been added to the cast of the romantic comedy ‘Playing the Field,’ joining Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman and newcomer Noah Lomax.

Gabriele Muccino (‘The Pursit of Happyness,’ ‘Seven Pound’) is directing the film from a script by Robbie Fox.

The story follows George Dryer (Gerard Butler), a former soccer player who goes back to try and patch things up with his son (Noah Lomax) and estranged wife (Jessica Biel) – who is engaged to remarry someone else – and ends up coaching the boy’s soccer team. He becomes the subject of fascination and desire by every bored house wife in town, especially the gorgeous Patti (Uma Thurman) who sets out on a mission to seduce the coach. Dryer must try to survive the extreme temptations of Patti and advances of the other soccer moms, as well as revive his relationship with his son.

Quaid is playing one of the coaches on the opposing teams.

The Houston native most recently played President Bill Clinton in the HBO film, ‘The Special Relationship,’ and was last seen on the big screen opposite Paul Bettany and Tyrese Gibson in the 2010 film ‘Legion.’

His next  film is opposite Helen Hunt and AnnaSophia Robb in ‘Soul Surfer,’ which is based on the life of Bethany Hamilton, who lost her left arm in a shark attack when she was 13 years old.

Filming on ‘Playing the Field’ starts this month in Shreveport, Louisiana. Developed by Nu Image/Millennium Films, Jonathan Mostow, Kevin Misher, Heidi Jo Markel, Gerard Butler and Alan Siegel will serve as producers. Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short and Avi Lerner are executive producers.
