Kevin Hart’s Netflix comedy Me Time adds Jimmy O. Yang and Luis Gerardo Méndez to an elite cast of Mark Wahlberg and, most recently, Regina Hall. Deadline confirmed the casting news.
John Hamburg will direct and write Me Time. The film follows a stay-at-home dad (Hart) who finds himself with some “me time” while his wife and children are gone for the first time in years. He reunites with his ex-best buddy (Wahlberg) for a crazy weekend that nearly decimates his life.
Yang has previously collaborated with Netflix on the comedy series Space Force, and it stars Steve Carell, and the rom-com Love Hard, which stars Nina Dobrev, will be released in Nov.
Méndez’s most recent film is the comedy Half Brothers, in which he was also was an executive producer, and it was released in theaters last year. Fans can expect to see him on season 3 of the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico. Méndez also starred in Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels and Adam Sandler’s Murder Mystery.
Hall is currently starring on Hulu’s Nine Perfect Strangers and the Showtime comedy Black Monday.
Wahlberg is coming off his recent film release of Paramount+ Infinite. He is filming the animated film Arthur the King, about an adventure racer who befriends Arthur, a homeless dog, to accompany him in an epic endurance race.
It is also being reported that Hart will reprise his role for Ride Along 3 as Ben Barber.
