Jones joins NL’s ‘Magnolia’

Pic stars Cruise, Moore

Orlando Jones, most noted for his stint on Fox’s “Mad TV,” has joined Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore and William H. Macy in New Line’s drama “Magnolia,” which recently began shooting in Los Angeles.

Jones will play a character named Worm, but the pic’s plot is being kept tightly under wraps. Paul Thomas Anderson helms.

Jones, who spent two seasons on “Mad TV,” will soon appear in Universal’s “New Jersey Turnpikes” and Warner Bros.’ “Liberty Heights.”

Jones’ deal was negotiated by William Morris and managers Erwin Stoff and Lainie Sorkin of 3 Arts Entertainment.
