Variety reports that comedy great Billy Crystal has joined the Dwayne Johnson Fox comedy, “Tooth Fairy”. The film co-stars Ashley Judd, and Julie Andrews, with direction by Michael Lembeck (The Santa Clause 2 & 3).
In the film, Johnson plays a tough as nails hockey player who is well known for knocking his opponents teeth out, and he is punished for his actions and forced to become the Tooth Fairy for a week.
“Tooth Fairy” follows “The Game Plan” and “Get Smart” for Johnson, who has been building up his family film leading man status. He’ll be appearing next in the 2009 remake “Race to Witch Mountain”.
