Jaeger on the line

Thesp to star in laffer 'Miss Dial'

Sam Jaeger (“Parenthood”) has joined indie comedy “Miss Dial,” the feature directorial debut of screenwriter David H. Steinberg (“Puss in Boots”).

Steinberg is directing from his own script.

The film stars Robinne Lee (“Hitch”) as a consumer affairs rep who deals with irate customers calling about everything from the availability of the “limited edition” cheddar cheese to whether it’s safe for dogs to drink the blue toilet water. She decides to play hooky by calling random strangers in order to reconnect with the world outside her apartment and meets Jaeger’s character by accident.

Jaeger joins Jon Huertas, Sara Rue, Amanda Crew, Gabrielle Union, Josh Cooke, Dule Hill, Samm Levine, Hill Harper and Beth Grant in the film, currently shooting in Los Angeles. “Miss Dial” is produced by Keetgi Kogan, Elizabeth Hughes, Eric Hayes and Lee.

Jaeger is repped by Michael Greene and Steve Dontanville. Steinberg’s repped by APA and Silent R.
