Bill & Ted Face the Music has added Jayma Mays in an important role.
Deadline reports the actress, who played school guidance counsellor and Mr Schuester’s recurring love interest Emma Pillsbury on Glee, has joined the cast as Bill’s (Alex Winter) wife Princess Joanna.
She has starred previously in films such as Red Eye and American Made.
The film will see Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprise their roles as the aspiring musicians 25 years on from where we last left them.
It will be written by the original Bill & Ted scribes Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.
Speaking previously about the script, Solomon told Digital Spy: “We have a script that we really are proud of, that we worked very hard on, that we’ve done many iterations of – and we did it on spec, meaning we spent years working on it because we wanted to get it right, creatively.”
He added: “This is not, ‘Hey let’s all cash in on the Bill & Ted thing for money’ – this is the opposite.
“This is, ‘We love these characters, they’ve been with us for our whole lives’ – Chris and me, and Alex and Keanu – and we wanted to visit them again as middle-aged men. We thought it would be really fun, and funny, and sweet.”
Bill and Ted Face the Music is expected to be released on August 21, 2020.
