Toni Trucks, who can be seen as the nomadic vampire Mary in this fall’s The Twlight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, has been added to the cast of Fox Searchlight’s dramedy He Loves Me.
Trucks joins Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, Annette Bening, Deborah Ann Woll, Chris Messina and Antonio Banderas in the romantic comedy from Little Miss Sunshine directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton.
Written by Kazan, He Loves Me centers on a novelist (Dano) whose loneliness has caused a serious case of writer’s block. He conjures up his dream girl, who comes to life to be his girlfriend.
Trucks will play the “feisty wife” of Messina’s character.
Trucks’ previous credits include the Hugh Grant/Drew Barrymore romantic comedy Music and Lyrics, Showtime’s short-lived Barbershop TV series and the Will Smith-Jada Pinkett CW series All of Us.
