James Marsden, Wes Bentley, Joan Cusack and Alan Tudyk have joined the cast of “Welcome to Me” starring Kristen Wiig.

The story follows a women who suffers from dissociative personality disorder and wins the lottery only to decide to spend her money on a cable access talk show about herself.

The WME and Authentic Talent and Literary Management-repped Marsden can be seen next in “The Butler” as John F. Kennedy. Bentley, who is repped by WME and Untitled Entertainment, just signed on to Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar.”

Cusack is repped by WME and was last seen in Summit’s “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” Tudyk was last seen in Legendary’s “42” and is repped by Gersh.
