My Best Friend's Wedding star Dermot Mulroney has nabbed a lead role in Ted Collins' buddy comedy 2 Men & a Pig.

Mulroney will play the role of Rick, while his character's brother, Michael, is to be portrayed by Jim Connor (Parks & Recreation).

Neal McDonough will play Texas Ranger Walkyre Alabama, while also executive producing, and comedian Dina Nina Martinez has been cast as Rosalita.

Collins, a producer on the Slamdance Grand Jury award-winning film Mr. Fish: Cartooning From the Deep End, will direct 2 Men & a Pig from a script by James R.W. Cornetet and Michael S. Cornetet. Collins is also sharing producer credits with Raz Cunningham.

Mulroney earlier joined the Amazon series Homecoming as a recurring guest star. His most recent movie credits include Max Martini's Will Gardner, Nathan Frankowski's The Chickasaw Rancher and Scott Speer's I Still See You, while his previous credits also include Dirty Grandpa, Jobs and Zodiac.
