The boys of the Big Bang Theory may get a bit jealous as their gorgeous neighbor moves on out of their apartment an into feature films. The Hollywood Reporter states that Kaley Cuoco, who has starred in the CBS hit sitcom since its inception, will join James Marsden in Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures I Hop, a live action/CG comedy in the vein of Alvin and the Chipmunks.
It should be no surprise, then, that Tim Hill, who directed similar films including 20th Century Fox’s Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties and Alvin, will helm the picture which centers on an out-of-work slacker (Marsden) who accidentally injures the son of the Easter Bunny (voiced by Russell Brand) and must take him in as he recovers.
Cuoco will play Marsden’s sister, who allows Marsden to live with her when he gets kicked out by his parents, and finds herself dealing with the injured heir to the Easter Bunny throne. The 24 year old actress has appeared in several indie movies, but this will mark her first major motion picture.
Though the hybrid comedy format is getting a little worn out, a fresh face on film like Cuoco, who oozes charisma, will be a sight for sore eyes.
