'Rescue Me' actress laughs it up with 'Terri'


"Rescue Me" actress Olivia Crocicchia has been cast in the indie comedy "Terri," opposite John C. Reilly.

Directed by Azazel Jacobs, "Terri" centers on a large 14-year-old boy in a small town as he struggles to adjust to his difficult life. Crocicchia will play Heather, a pretty but sad girl who helps Terri cope with a frequently hostile world.

The film was written by novelist Patrick deWitt ("Ablutions"). Producers include Alex Orlovsky and Lynette Howell ("Half Nelson"), Hunter Gray ("Voy a Explotar") and Alison Dickey ("Piggie"). David Guy Levy ("August") is an executive producer.

The Silverwood Films-ALO Productions-Verisimilitude production began shooting last week in Los Angeles.

Repped by Vanguard Management Group, Crocicchia plays the younger daughter of Denis Leary's character on FX's "Rescue Me." She also stars in the indie drama "The Wheeler Boys," which screened at the Los Angeles Film Festival, and has a role in David O. Russell's upcoming comedy "Nailed."

Jacobs also wrote and directed "The Good Times Kid" and "Momma's Man."
