C.K. cast alongside Lawrence

Louis C.K., who co-wrote “I Think I Love My Wife” with Chris Rock, has been cast alongside Martin Lawrence in “The Better Man.”

Lawrence plays a successful talkshow host who moves home to the South in the Universal comedy. C.K. will play Marty, his fast-talking producer.

Malcolm Lee is directing, and Scott Stuber and Mary Parent are producing via their U-based Stuber/Parent banner.

C.K. recently starred in the HBO skein “Lucky Louie.” He also starred in one-hour comedy special “Louis C.K.: Shameless” for the feevee channel.

“The Better Man” is Lawrence’s next pic following the currently onscreen “Wild Hogs.”

Fox Searchlight bows “I Think I Love My Wife” this weekend.
