The upcoming big screen pregnancy movie keeps growing, with a cast that is getting bigger and a plot that is getting wackier.

Continuing the good fortune for the cast members of "Bridesmaids," Wendi McLendon-Covey who played the married and harried Rita in the film (and who comedy buffs already knew from "Reno 911!") has joined "What to Expect When You're Expecting." Her acting skills will be put to the test as she will play J.Lo's co-worker and best bud. And oh yeah, while he's already been knocking around casting announcements for a while now, we guess his PR people made it officially official as Matthew Morrison from "Glee" is in the film too. He will play Evan, a guy who pairs up with Cameron Diaz for a reality dance show only for them to knock boots and make a baby. Isn't it enough that this movie has a plot involving people with competing food trucks?

Anyway, she joins an already engorged cast that includes Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Chris Rock, Matthew Morrison, Rodrigo Santoro, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford and Rob Huebel. Kirk Jones (”Nanny McPhee,” “Waking Ned Devine”) is directing and the film lands on May 11, 2012. [THR/Deadline]
