Chrissie Fit has booked a role in Universal’s sequel Pitch Perfect 2, playing a new member of the Barden Bellas. Many of the original cast members are returning, but plot details are being kept under wraps for director Elizabeth Banks’ film, which is shooting in Baton Rouge, LA. Fit’s credits include Disney Channel’s Teen Beach Movie and Win, Lose Or Draw, along with the feature Filly Brown and a recurring role on General Hospital. She is repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Intellectual Artists Management.
Shohreh Aghdashloo has been tapped to narrate the documentary Alam High School. Director Saman Yaghmai-Aledavoud’s film is about an elite, experimental co-ed school established in the conservative Iranian city in 1969, where students were taught in English by young American members of the Peace Corps and Iranian college professors. Ten years later, it became a detention center for political dissidents. Aghdashloo, who won an Emmy for House Of Saddam and earned an Oscar nom for House Of Sand And Fog, next appears in The Last Knights and Rosewater. She is repped by CAA and Roundtable Entertainment and in the UK by Ken McReddie. (more…)
