Universal Pictures; Focus Features



Still more stars have joined the cast of Jon Stewart's upcoming political comedy "Irresistible."

The latest additions to the cast are Topher Grace and Mackenzie Davis, per Deadline. The publication first reported on Wednesday that Davis was new to the cast, and then followed it up with news that Grace had also joined. They're set to appear alongside Steve Carell, Chris Cooper, and Rose Byrne.

"Irresistible" is written by Stewart, who will also direct the film. It centers on a political consultant (Carell) who joins the effort to get retired ex-Marine colonel (Cooper) elected mayor of a small town in Wisconsin. Byrne's character works as a consultant for their opponent, a Republican incumbent. There's no word yet on Grace and Davis's characters.

Both actors have been in some high-profile projects of late. Grace starred in Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman" and Davis was in Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049." Other recent films include "Under the Silver Lake" and "Delirium" for Grace and "Tully" and "Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town" for Davis.

"Irresistible" will be produced by Stewart and Plan B Entertainment, with Focus Features and Universal Pictures International distributing.
