Chase Ellison cast in 'Tooth Fairy'

Joins Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews

Chase Ellison has a sweet tooth.

The teen actor has joined the cast of Fox's family comedy "Tooth Fairy," which stars Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd and Julie Andrews.

Ellison plays the bright and gifted Randy, son to Judd's character, who forms a bond with his mom's minor-league hockey player boyfriend Derek (Johnson) whose nickname is "The Tooth Fairy." But that bond changes when Derek discourages Randy and is sentenced to act as a real tooth fairy, complete with tutu and wings.

Production begins Friday in Vancouver with Michael Lembeck directing.

Ellison can be seen in Alan Ball's "Towelhead," and in the upcoming indie "Fireflies in the Garden," which stars Julia Roberts.

Ellison is repped by ABA and Artistry Management.
