Washington (ANI): The sexy Jessica Alba has signed on to star in Paramount Pictures' new movie Love Guru. The sexy star will be playing the female lead opposite funnyman Mike Myers, who has also scripted the film along with Graham Gordy. Also appearing with the two will be Romany Alco, and Verne Troyer, who played Mini-Me in Myers' three "Austin Powers" films, reports Variety.
In the movie, Myers plays Pitka, an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. After returning to America, he tries to settle a rift between a hockey player, to be played by Malco, and his wife, who in turn is enamoured with the star player of a rival team.
Alba plays the hockey team owner and Troyer the team coach. Pitka's job is to check that romance between Malco and his wife, so that the star player can lead his team to the championship. Director Marco Schnabel will helm the picture, scheduled for a June 20, 2008 release.
