According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kerry Washington has signed on to play opposite Shawn and Marlon Wayans in Little Man for Revolution Studios. Tracy Morgan and John Witherspoon also have joined the cast of the con artist comedy, which is being helmed by Keenen Ivory Wayans.
The film, written by the three brothers, centers on a man (Shawn Wayans) who is so anxious to become a father that he mistakes a short, baby-faced thief on the run (Marlon Wayans) for an abandoned toddler. He and his wife (Washington) take the baby into their home and care for him. Morgan will play the baby's partner in crime in a jewelry store heist. Witherspoon will play the father of Washington's character.
