Vaugier is repped by APA and Mosaic.
Feore, who is repped by the Coronel Group, is coming off star-turns in "24" and Jacob Tierney’s Canadian indie film “The Trostsky.” He is also booked for roles in Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor,” the Marvel Studios adaptation of its comic book, and the Showtime cable series “The Borgias,” which shoots in Budapest later this year.
“French Immersion” is shooting just east of Montreal, ahead of a planned July 1, 2011 theatrical release.
