A tiny exclusive: Film’s New York City spies tell me that Ana de la Reguera (best known as Sister Encarnacion in Nacho Libre) has joined the cast of Kevin Smith‘s A Couple of Dicks as the third major lead. The R-Rated buddy cop comedy stars Tracy Mogan and Bruce Willis as two veteran LAPD detectives who attempt to track down a stolen, mint-condition, 1952 baseball card, get tangled with a sports memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Reguera plays a Mexican beauty named Gabriela, who is rescued by the duo and might hold the key to millions in laundered drug money.
Adam Bordy and Sean William Scott also have roles in the film. Written by Robb and Marc Cullen, and featured on the 2008 Black List (a Hollywood insider list of the best unproduced screenplays of the year), A Couple of Dicks is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters on February 26th 2010.
