Bridget Regan Cast in a Movie  
She'll get some film work in before heading back to New Zealand. :)

Philly, doing a bang-up film business of late, will stand in for New York in The Best and the Brightest, a farce about two Delawareans trying to get their daughter into an elite Manhattan private kindergarten.Shooting will start Thursday, and they'll be doing exteriors all over Center City.

Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Bonnie Somerville (Cashmere Mafia) play the couple. Also cast are some wickedly great comic actors: Amy Sedaris (Strangers With Candy), Peter Serafinowicz (BBC), John Hodgman (the PC guy in the Mac commercials), Bridget Regan (Legend of the Seeker), veteran Kate Mulgrew, and Christopher McDonald (yes, Shooter McGavin himself from Happy Gilmore).

Josh Shelov (Mayne Street), who wrote the screenplay with Michael Jaeger, will direct.
