Rachel True and Harland Williams have signed to join Dave Chappelle and “Saturday Night Live” regular Jim Brewer in the cast of Universal’s “Half Baked.”

True will play Chappelle’s girlfriend, Mary Jane, in the comedy about a pair of chronic potheads who resort to selling stolen grass to raise bail for a friend. Williams plays the one behind bars.

The film also stars Snoop Doggy Dogg and Steven Wright.

Co-written by Chappelle and Neal Brennen, “Half Baked” is directed by Tamra Davis and produced by Robert Simonds.

True starred in Gregg Araki’s recently released feature “Nowhere” as well as Columbia’s 1996 teen hit “The Craft.”

Following “Baked,” she has a lead role in the indie feature “Babylon Sisters,” directed by Rae Dawn Chong and produced by Joel Castleberg.

True was repped in the deal by her manager Ben Levine at Seven Summits and her agent Lorrie Bartlett at the Gersh Agency.

Williams, best known as the star of the series “Simon,” stars in the Disney pic “Rocket Man,” which the studio launches Oct. 10, and has a role in Barry Levinson’s “Wag the Dog.”

He’s repped by Endeavor and managed by Eric Gold, Peter Safran and Jamie Masada.
