Foxworthy to make bigscreen debut

Comedian also exec producing sports comedy 'Crackerjack'

Exclusive: Comedian Jeff Foxworthy is set to make his onscreen feature debut in the sports comedy “Crackerjack.”

Bryan Coley is writing and directing the indie pic, which starts shooting today in Savannah, GA.

Darren Moorman, Mil Cannon and Matt Pope are producing, while Foxworthy is exec producing.

Wes Murphy stars as the irresponsible title character, a homegrown southern boy trying to deal with abandonment issues and maintain his relationship with his girlfriend, all while trying to lead his Church League softball team to victory.

Foxworthy is set for a supporting role as the Church League announcer.

Coley is a theater director who populated the cast with local stage actors including Bethany Anne Lind, who plays Crackerjack’s love interest.

While Foxworthy had his own eponymous TV show in the mid-1990s, his only features have been voice roles in 2005’s “Racing Stripes” and 2006’s direct-to-video “The Fox and the Hound 2.” He’ll soon be heard in Sony’s upcoming “The Smurfs” as Handy Smurf.

Murphy has appeared in a handful of indie pics, but may be best known for serving as Robert Pattinson’s uncredited stand-in in “Twilight.”

Moorman is in post-production on the indie drama “Unconditional,” a project formerly known as “Firebird,” which stars Lynn Collins and Michael Ealy.

Foxworthy is repped by Paradigm and Parallel Entertainment.
