William O. Perkins, Founder and President of LLeju Productions, announced today that Paul Wesley, star of CW's The Vampire Diaries has joined the cast of The Baytown Disco. Wesley joins Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives, The Sentinel) and Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade, Bad Santa, Monster's Ball) on the action comedy directed by Barry Battles, which is currently shooting in Louisiana.
The Baytown Disco, featured on 2009's "Black List" of Hollywood's top unproduced projects, follows the foibles of three redneck brothers who get more than they bargained for after agreeing to help a woman get her son back from his seemingly-abusive father.
