HOLLYWOOD — Richard Schiff is heading from the West Wing to the stolen ring: Schiff, seen weekly on the hit Peacock drama “The West Wing,” is joining the cast of “What’s the Worst That Could Happen?” — a thief caper that will co-star Martin Lawrence and Danny DeVito.
The MGM pic “Worst” centers on a thief (Lawrence) who becomes enraged when he is relieved of his prized ring by the intended victim (DeVito) of his heist. Schiff will play the uptight attorney who reps DeVito’s character.
Schiff appeared on the series “Relativity,” and in pics “The Lost World,” “Dr. Dolittle” and “Deep Impact.”
He was repped in the deal by Paradigm and is managed by Leverage Management.
