Deadline has reported that Rhea Seehorn is set to join Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys 4, which is currently shooting in Atlanta.
It’s not clear who Rhea Seehorn will be playing in Bad Boys 4, but after some seriously impressive work playing attorney Kim Wexler in Better Call Saul, she’s sure to be a very welcome addition to the cast.
After Bad Boys for Life grossed $426 million worldwide, it was clear that a sequel would soon follow, and not even SlapGate could stop it. Bad Boys 4 will find Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah returning to direct from a script by Chris Bremmer. Bad Boys for Life cast members Paola Núnez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Alexander Ludwig will return for the fourth installment alongside Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. It was also revealed last month that Eric Dane had joined the cast and was expected to play the villain. Ioan Gruffudd has also signed on, playing a character named Lockwood, who is a high-profile attorney running for an election.
After playing Kim Wexler on all six seasons of Better Call Saul, Rhea Seehorn is sticking with Vince Gilligan. It was announced last year that she had signed on to star in Gilligan’s new series. “After 15 years, I figured it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes, and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn?” Gilligan wrote in a statement. “It’s long past time she had her own show, and I feel lucky to get to work on it with her. And what nice symmetry to be reunited with Zack Van Amburg, Jamie Erlicht and Chris Parnell! Jamie and Zack were the first two people to say yes to Breaking Bad all those years ago. They’ve built a great team at Apple, and my wonderful, long-time partners at Sony Pictures Television and I are excited to be in business with them.” It’s still not clear what this new series will be about, but it has been described as a “blended, grounded genre drama” in the vein of Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone.
