Seth Gordon is directing the feature, which centers on a milquetoast family man (Bateman) who gets a life lesson in stepping up when his identity is stolen by a mess of a woman (McCarthy).
Also among the growing cast are Amanda Peet, John Cho, Jon Favreau and Genesis Rodriguez.
Stonestreet will play Big Chuck, a realty broker with an outsized personality who has a run-in with McCarthy and Bateman’s characters.
Scott Stuber and Pamela Abdy are producing the movie, which is shooting in Atlanta.
Stonestreet has been twice Emmy-nominated for his work on Modern Family, winning in 2010 for the best supporting actor in a comedy series. He appeared in last year’s comedy Bad Teacher, which starred Cameron Diaz, and has the ensemble indie The Loft — which counts James Marsden, Wentworth Miller and Karl Urban among its cast — in the can.
He is repped by ICM and Thruline.
