Esposito dons ‘Disguise’ for Carvey laffer

Thesp joins cast that also includes Loggia, McClurg

Jennifer Esposito (“Summer of Sam”) has been cast opposite Dana Carvey in Revolution Studios’ “Master of Disguise,” which starts lensing later this month.

Pic centers on a man (Carvey) who finds out his family has been masters of disguise for generations. To save his parents from an evil black-marketer, he must quickly learn the family’s unique talents from his grandfather. Esposito plays Carvey’s loyal assistant and love interest.

Vet thesps Robert Loggia and Edie McClurg also have been cast in the pic — Loggia as Carvey’s grandfather, McClurg as his mother.

Art director and production designer Perry Andelin Blake will make his feature directorial debut with “Master of Disguise,” written by Carvey and Harris Goldberg.

Todd Garner, Alex Siskin, Barry Bernardi and Sid Ganis will produce. Derek Dauchy is overseeing the pic for Revolution.

Esposito, who is repped by ICM, appears in upcoming thriller “Don’t Say a Word” with Michael Douglas and recently worked on “Welcome to Collinwood” with George Clooney.
