Jacobs joins a cast that also includes Octavia Spencer, Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Ehle.
The script, written by Binder, centers on an attorney (Costner) who battles for custody of his biracial granddaughter after the girl’s black grandmother demands the child be put under the care of her father, a drug addict whose negligence may have caused the death of the attorney’s wife.
Jacobs has the role of the girlfriend of Costner’s best friend, played by Bill Burr.
IM Global is handling international sales on the movie, now in production.
Jacobs, who soon begins production on the fifth season of Community, is filming Hot Tub Time Machine 2.
