-- It was announced today that actress Lunden De'Leon has been cast in the film "We're the Millers" alongside Jennifer Aniston, Ed Helms (The Hangover) and Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses).
The comedy, to be released next year, is based around a veteran pot dealer who creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.
The cast also includes Emma Roberts, Will Poulter, Parks & Recreation‘s Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn.
Fans recall first being introduced to De'Leon as Joanne Mbutu on the hit television series Vital Signs. Years later, she catapulted that breakout role into a successful career with quite an impressive track-record by creating a number of unforgettable performances and starring in over fifty movies and television shows like the 20th Century Fox Movie The Ladies Room, Surviving Paradise, Fury, Faux-Pas, Cryptz, the HBO award-winning film Kickin Chicken and the NBC hit comedy "Just Shoot Me."
De'Leon was soon voted by The Ave Magazine as "One of the Most Significant Women in Entertainment"
alongside Halle Berry, Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey and many more.
This summer, De'Leon can also be seen in the GMC movie "Somebody's Child" alongside Emmy Award-winner Lynn Whitfield (“The Josephine Baker Story,” “Eve’s Bayou”).
