Matthew Broderick is joining the cast of director Brett Ratner’s Tower Heist.
In the Universal Pictures comedy, an overworked manager (Ben Stiller) of an illustrious tower residence leads a team of defrauded workers in a heist of its penthouse tenant (Alan Alda), a Bernie Madoff-type Wall Street capitalist who pulled a Ponzi scheme and swindled the staff. Alda will play the capitalist.
Eddie Murphy, Tea Leoni, Gabourey Sidibe, Michael Pena and Nina Arianda co-star in the November 4, 2011 release.
UPDATE: Casey Affleck and Judd Hirsch have also joined the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Affleck is said to play both a friend and employee to Stiller whose conscious threatens to ruin the planned heist. Hirschs role is currently unknown.
