Schwimmer uncovers 'Truth'


David Schwimmer is joining the cast of the political thriller "Nothing but the Truth," being directed by Rod Lurie. Bob Yari and Marc Frydman are producing.

Schwimmer joins a cast that includes Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Vera Farmiga, Edie Falco and Alan Alda.

Written by Lurie, the story centers on female newspaper reporter (Beckinsale) who outs a CIA agent and is imprisoned for refusing to reveal her source.

Schwimmer will play Beckinsale's husband, who initially supports his wife's decision not to name names but as time goes by begins to resent her for choosing a principle over her family.

Schwimmer is making his directorial debut with "Run Fat Boy, Run," a comedy starring Simon Pegg and Thandie Newton. Picturehouse will premiere the movie next month at the Toronto International Film Festival before releasing the movie in October.

Schwimmer is repped by Gersh and attorney Michael Gendler.
