Fivesome Joins All’s Faire in Love


The Hollywood Reporter says that Christina Ricci, Owen Benjamin, Nadine Velazquez, Bill Engvall and Cedric the Entertainer are heading to the Renaissance Faire in the romantic comedy All’s Faire in Love (AKA “Ye Olde Times”).

Benjamin (The House Bunny) will play an eager drama school grad whose new Renaissance Faire theater troupe makes him their fetch boy. His hopes and libido rise when he spots a Faire virgin (Ricci), but swashbuckling colleagues threaten to thwart their budding romance.

Ann-Margret, Matthew Lillard and Louise Griffiths also star in the That’s Hollywood/Patriot Pictures production. Velazquez (NBC’s “My Name Is Earl”) and Engvall (Blue Collar Comedy Tour) will be cast by the time cameras roll this month in Michigan.

Scott Marshall (Keeping Up With the Steins) directs from Robert A. White’s screenplay.
