Alison Brie & Mary McDonnell Round Out Cast

Some (thankfully) official news today helps finalize the cast list for Scream 4. Hopefully it will soon end all the on-and-off casting controversy that the media has been playing up.

“Battlestar Galactica” president Mary McDonnell and “Community” star Alison Brie are the latest actresses to join the cast of Wes Craven’s “Scream 4,” Dimension Films has confirmed to TheWrap.

Dimension also confirmed that Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and Erik Knudsen were recently added to the ensemble.

Additionally, Lauren Graham’s publicist confirmed reports that she has dropped out of the movie due to a scheduling conflict, which likely refers to Graham’s NBC series “Parenthood.”

Brie will play Rebecca, franchise heroine Sidney Prescott’s ambitious personal assistant who secretly envies her boss’ reluctant fame and fortune.

Brie has a recurring role on AMC’s “Mad Men” and will soon be seen in the indie movies “Rapsberry Magic” and “Montana Amazon.”

McDonnell will next be seen playing Kevin Spacey’s wife in the Wall Street thriller “Margin Call.”

Brie and McDonnell are both represented by Innovative Artists, while UTA represents Brody and Shelton and Gersh represents Knudsen.

Production on “Scream 4″ is currently under way in Michigan. The film is set to carve up the box office on April 15, 2011.

If we were betting, we’d say that McDonnell is Graham’s replacement. Albeit an older one. She would certainly bring in a motherly instinct. Or Woodsboro High’s headmaster, perhaps? Speculation is fun, but you never truly know with Scream until opening night.

  1. I am with you guys , McDonell looks like she could play Jill’s mom (Emmma Roberts), that supposedly her character name is Kate. And it’s great that we have to wait until opening night to see all of the SECRETS , SURPRISES AND TWISTS!!!! I want to see a BIG twist in Scream 4.

  3. Or McDonell could play the principal of Woodsboro High , too , but that would be kind of boring. WOW , 13 people on the cast of Scream 4 , right?!!! The list should be finished with these two latest actresses joining the new movie. Dont add no other person , please. Maybe this means that Ghostface will kill a lot of people in Scream 4 or maybe some of them will survive from the killer and will appear in Scream 5 , like Emma Roberts or other cast members. Some could even survive until Scream 6…..

  11. Someone should get YOU out of here for spamming. Anthony Anderson is a fine actor. Also very excited to hear about Mary McDonnell joining the cast.

  15. Wow. Amazing cast! I don’t know who exactly Mary McDonnell and
    Alison Brie are, but I’m looking forward to this movie more than you will ever know.
    I also like Anthony Anderson. I find him a great actor.

  17. I haven’t heard of Alison Brie, but it’s good they wanna mix it up with fresh faces as well as seasoned pros. I remember Mary McDonnell as the mother in Donnie Darko. I’m happy to see her enter mainstream horror. Good cast so far. I hope Ehren doesn’t screw up the script. From what I’ve read, some of the characters are being dumbed down…if this’ll be a repeat of Scream 3 I don’t think I’ll watch this in theaters. I would’ve wanted Kevin to come back for rewrites. :
