Winter Ave Zoli (Sons Of Anarchy) and Swiss actor Carlos Leal (Devious Minds) have signed up for The Wrong Stuff, adapted from the memoir by ex-big league pitcher Bill “Spaceman” Lee. The 1980s-set the film chronicles the downward spiral of Lee (Josh Duhamel), a hot-tempered, self-serving madman unable to see himself as anything other than a baseball player. Ave Zoli will play Mary Lou, Lee’s long-suffering wife who fights for custody of their kids. Leal is set as Gino Lapue, the French-Canadian manager for the Longeuil Senators where Joe (Ernie Hudson) plays and who is hoping that Lee will join the team.
Ave Zoli next appears in the indie thriller Deserted opposite Mischa Barton. She is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, Inspire Entertainment and Stone Meyer. Leal, who co-starred on European series The Team and Der Bestatter, is repped by Creative Partners Group and Brio Entertainment in the U.S. and A6 Cinema in Spain
Lenny Venito (The Neighbors) has booked a role in Jodie Foster’s Money Monster, starring George Clooney as a TV personality whose insider tips have made him the money guru of Wall Street. He will play Lenny the Cameraman who works on Lee’s (Clooney) show; gruff, union strong and basically unflappable. Julia Roberts and Jack O’Connell also star. Along with starring for two seasons on ABC comedy The Neighbors, Venito has guested on such series as Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Good Wife and Rescue Me and had an arc on The Sopranos. Recent big-screen credits include St. Vincent and Men In Black 3. He is repped by Abrams Artists Agency, ATA management and Hansen Jacobson.
