Wendt goes ‘Outside’

George Wendt has been cast in “Outside Providence,” opposite Alec Baldwin and Shawn Hatosy.

Newcomer Amy Smart also is close to a deal to join the Michael Corrente-helmed coming-of-age pic, which begins production Monday in Rhode Island.

The film, adapted by Corrente and Bobby & Peter Farrelly from Peter Farrelly’s comic novel of the same name, concerns a working-class teenager who gets sent to an elite prep school.

Wendt recently completed indie film “Rupert’s Land” in which he starred with Samuel West. His other feature credits include “Forever Young,” “Guilty By Suspicion,” “Fletch” and “Gung Ho.” Wendt’s longtime role as Norm on “Cheers’ earned him six Emmy noms.

Smart recently completed filming Shooting Gallery’s “Rune,” starring Kevin Gage and Elizabeth Pena, and has joined the cast of Bandeira’s “Starfucker.” She’ll next be seen in TriStar’s futuristic actioner “Starship Troopers.”

Wendt was repped in the deal by Paradigm’s Sandi Dudek and his manager at Brillstein-Grey.

Smart was repped in the deal by Katie Mason and Barry McPherson of APA and Andrea Pett-Joseph of Brillstein-Grey.
