Angela Bassett has joined the cast of new romantic comedy This Means War.
The action comedy, directed by Charlie's Angels and Terminator Salvation's McG will star Star Trek's Chris Pine and Inception's Tom Hardy as best friends and international spies who both fall in love with the same girl, played by Reese Witherspoon, and declare war on each other.
ER star Angela will play their boss who is dedicated to spying and has no life outside the CIA, Variety reports.
The Fox movie is being produced by Will Smith, along with Reese, James Lassiter, Robert Simonds and Simon Kinberg.
Angela will next be seen in wedding comedy Jumping The Broom next spring and also has a role in the highly anticipated comic book adventure Green Lantern, due out next June.
