Fogler’s on lucky streak

Thesp to join Alba, Cook in Lionsgate laffer 'Chuck'

Dan Fogler will join Dane Cook and Jessica Alba in the Lionsgate comedy “Good Luck Chuck.” Mark Helfrich is directing.

Fogler, who won a Tony for his role in “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” will play a lecherous plastic surgeon and pal of Chuck, a womanizing dentist.

Josh Stolberg wrote the script. Mike Karz is producing and Tracey Edmonds is exec producer.

Fogler stars in the Focus/Spyglass comedy “Balls of Fury,” and Spyglass just attached him to “Spanky Johnson: Monster Hunter,” a David Berenbaum spec script. He’ll first be seen onscreen in “Fanboys” for the Weinstein Co. and in the Todd Phillips-directed “School for Scoundrels.”
