Claire Forlani has joined Hank Azaria, William H. Macy, Janeane Garofalo, Paul Reubens, Geoffrey Rush and Lena Olin in Universal’s “Mystery Men.”

The Kina Usher-helmed pic focuses on an unlikely group of superheroes. Forlani plays Monica, a diner waitress who falls in love with Mr. Furious, one of the superheroes who has not yet been cast.

Written by Neil Cuthbert, “Mystery Men” is produced by Lawrence Gordon, Lloyd Levin and Mike Richardson.

In November, Forlani will be onscreen opposite Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins in the Universal feature “Meet Joe Black.” Her other credits include the indie feature “The Last Time I Committed Suicide,” “Basquiat” and “The Rock.”

Forlani’s deal was negotiated by John Fogelman and Theresa Peters at the William Morris Agency, attorney Robert Offer and manager Marsha McManus.
