Lamorne Morris and Jackie Earle Haley have signed on to star in the indie comedy-drama Death Of A Telemarketer. Written and directed by Khaled Ridgeway, the film follows a too-slick-for-his-own-good telemarketer who finds himself in a life or death circumstance when he is held hostage at gunpoint for trying to con a middle-aged man to win a sales contest at work.
Morris will play the telemarketer, with Haley as his middle-aged co-worker. Also on board to star are Haley Joel Osment and Alisha Wainwright.
This is the latest excellent role Morris has secured after New Girl wrapped. He’ll star alongside Vin Diesel in the superhero movie Bloodshot, and also toplines the new Hulu comedy Woke.
Haley was last seen in the Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower, Alita: Battle Angel, and Amazon superhero series The Tick.
Osment will next be seen in the thriller The Devil Has A Name. Wainwright will star opposite Michael B. Jordan in the Netflix sci-fi family drama Raising Dion.
Death Of A Telemarketer has already begun shooting in Los Angeles. Datari Turner is producing.
