Jim Carrey will be surrounded by plenty of beautiful women in his upcoming film Mr. Popper’s Penguins. The actor will headline the movie which co-stars Carla Gugino as his wife Mrs. Popper. According to THR, Ophelia Lovibond has signed on to join the cast as another very important female in Popper’s life.
The trade is reporting that Lovibond will star as Poppers’ personal assistant. Mr. Popper’s Penguins centers on a high-powered businessman who suddenly inherits six penguins. As he gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, Popper’s life quickly unravels: his swanky New York apartment is turned into a snowy winter wonderland, the deal he’s long been working on is derailed, and he almost lands in jail.
Lovibond is a rising UK star who will make her debut Stateside in the Ivan Reitman comedy No Strings. She’s also rumored to be one of the many young actresses up for the female lead in Sony’s Spider-Man reboot. But she’s got some tough competition with Emma Roberts, Lily Collins, Teresa Palmer, and Imogen Poots.
