Logue pulls strings on tennis comedy

Thesp does double duty on indie pic

“Grounded for Life” star Donal Logue has spent his hiatus making his feature directing debut on “Tennis, Anyone,” an independently financed comedy.

The black comedy is set in the world of celebrity tennis tournaments, where the stakes are small and the battles are bitter.

Logue pulled double duty, appearing in the film along with Kirk Fox, Jason Isaacs, Paul Rudd, Stephen Dorff, Henry Thomas, Greg Lauren, Danny Trejo, Kylie Bax, D.W. Moffett and Noah Wyle. Orian Williams is producing.

Logue will wrap the film, financed by Ria Prods., before returning to “Grounded for Life,” the Carsey-Werner-Mandabach series that airs on the WB. Logue took the job after scoring some momentum on the independent film scene when he drew a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival for his role in “The Tao of Steve.”
