Terry Crews and Sean Combs join 'Draft Day' as filming begins


The NFL Draft is tonight, and while yours truly will surely be in front of the couch watching every single move my beloved Chicago Bears makes, I'll also be keeping an eye out to see if Kevin Costner is hanging around the team's War Room. His latest film, the sports comedy Draft Day, will be shooting at Radio City Music Hall tonight to capture the feel of the event, which is why the cast has now been firmed up with a number of new additions.

Directed by Ivan Reitman and based on an acclaimed screenplay by Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman, the film has Costner as the GM of the woeful Cleveland Browns who has a chance to save the team after acquiring the #1 draft pick. Taking place over the course of a day during the Draft, he must decide what he's willing to give up professionally and personally to achieve perfection. With Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella, Chadwick Boseman, Ellen Burstyn, and Denis Leary already on board, the newest recruits are the always hilarious Terry Crews and Sean Combs. Josh Pence, Rosanna Arquette, Timothy Simons, David Ramsey, Wade Williams, Chi McBride, W. Earl Brown, Brad Henke, Griffin Newman, Kevin Dunn, Patrick St. Esprit, Christopher Cousins, Pat Healy, Laura Steinel and Wallace Langham round out the cast, which will even include an appearance by NFL rushing leader Arian Foster.

It's unclear what Crews and "P. Diddy" will be doing exactly, but the former is always good for a few laughs. Combs was far and away the best part of Get Him to the Greek as the aggressively jerky record producer, and would probably make for a perfect sports agent.
