McCormack fills sked with pix pair

NEW YORK — Mary McCormack, who portrayed deejay Howard Stern’s infinitely patient wife in Paramount’s “Private Parts,” is set to begin two new pics.

McCormack has been cast as the female lead in Stuart Burkin’s “Harvest,” a drama about an agricultural community which has been secretly growing marijuana in an effort to save its farms. She will play a drug enforcement agent investigating the contraband crop. Lemore Syvan and Ron Kastner are producing the pic, whose cast includes Fred Weller and Will Horneff.

Also on McCormack’s sked is “Deep Impact,” which Mimi Leder is directing for Paramount and DreamWorks. The thesp joins an ensemble that includes Elijah Wood, Robert Duvall, Tea Leoni and Morgan Freeman. McCormack will play the only female on a team of American and Russian astronauts whose mission is to intercept a comet before it collides with Earth.

Best known for her role as attorney Justine Appleton on Steven Bochco’s “Murder One,” McCormack recently wrapped Evan Dunsky’s “Life During Wartime,” adapted from Keith Reddin’s play about a security system salesmen who drifts into a life of crime. Bandeira Entertainment produced.

Rhonda Price of the Gersh Agency in New York reps McCormack.
