"The Daily Show"'s John Oliver Joins Love Guru Cast

"The Daily Show"'s John Oliver Joins Love Guru Cast

I just love this guy.
John Oliver is one of the greatest, funniest, dead-panniest parts of "The Daily Show" so I am thrilled to see that he's been cast in a real movie!

However...
Said movie is The Love Guru, in which Oliver will star alongside Mike Myers, Jessica Alba and Justin Timberlake. In addition to Oliver, Meagan Goode and Ben Kingsley have joined the cast.

What are they all doing in this movie?
Good question! Oliver has been cast as a gentleman named Dick Pants, a "manager whose goal is to get the Love Guru on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' to settle a rivalry between his client and Deepak Chopra."

Kingsley, who's been making odd choices lately, is playing "Guru Tugginmypudha, the ashram leader who teaches the title character (Myers) how to love himself and how to wear a chastity belt."

Meanwhile, Goode is playing a woman named Prudence who trades one hockey boyfriend (Romany Falco) for another (Timberlake).

So...
There's no shortage of cheeky names and silly premises, but I'm probably still going to see this — especially now that Oliver's climbed on board.
