Duo pass into Farrellys’ film

Jenkins, Thomas board 'Hall Pass'

Richard Jenkins and Bruce Thomas have joined the cast of the Farrelly brothers comedy “Hall Pass” for New Line.

Owen Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Jason Sudeikis, Christina Applegate and Alyssa Milano have already boarded the project, directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly.

Story revolves around two married couples whose wives give the husbands a “hall pass” to engage in extracurricular affairs. The brothers wrote the screenplay with Kevin Barnett and Pete Jones.

Jenkins will portray Coakley, a man who never settled down. He’s currently seen in “Dear John” and will be in Overture’s “Let Me In” this fall. Thomas (“Kyle XY”) portrays a baseball coach.

The Farrellys are producing through their Conundrum Entertainment banner with Conundrum’s Bradley Thomas and Charles B. Wessler.

Shooting began two weeks ago in Atlanta.
