Jamie Kennedy has joined the cast of director Simon Kaijser’s thriller Spinning Man, which stars Pierce Brosnan, Minnie Driver, Guy Pearce and Alexandra Shipp.

With a script by Matthew Aldrich, the film is based on the novel by George Harrar and follows philosophy professor and family man Evan Birch (Pearce). Evan’s world is upended when his illicit past and a string of inappropriate relationships with his students come to light. When a young woman is found murdered, he comes to the forefront as a suspect.

Kennedy will play Ross, a fellow ethics professor and friend of Evan's.

Spinning Man is slated to start principal photography this week in Los Angeles. Ellen S. Wander and Keith Arnold are producing, with Film Bridge International handling worldwide sales in Cannes.

Kennedy’s credits include Malibu's Most Wanted, the Scream franchise and TV's Ghost Whisperer. He is repped by Artist to Artist Management.
