Big Momma's House 3 Casting Almost Complete & About To Film!

As expected, the cast for the new Martin Lawrence film, Big Momma's House 3 is just about complete.

We hear that joining Lawrence and Brandon T Jackson are actors Faizon Love, Emily Rios, Portia Doubleday and Michelle Ang.

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, Jackson (of Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and the upcoming Lottery Ticket) joined the cast as Lawrence’s son and will also don the infamous fat suit. Jessica Lucas (of Cloverfield fame) also joined the cast in the third installment which is now titled Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. So far, the actress who is noticeably absent from the casting is actress Nia Long who played Lawrence’s love interest in the previous films.

If you recall, the Big Momma’s House franchise is about an FBI agent who wears drag and goes undercover to crack certain cases.

As we stated weeks ago, Big Momma’s House 3 is about Big Momma (Lawrence) and Charmaine (Jackson) go undercover at an all-girls performing-arts school to unmask a murderer. Love will play Kurtis Kool, a school security guard and former Run-D.M.C. roadie who becomes smitten with Big Momma. Rios, Doubleday and Ang will play students at the school who befriend Jackson's character.

The film begins shooting this month in Atlanta at the private, all-girls Agnes Scott College.

We hear up next for Lawrence is the rest of his Doin' Time Comedy Tour which is about to hit the major markets, and the Sheneneh and Wanda film also starring Jamie Foxx in the female characters they developed for their respective television shows. We even hear that there is some even bigger news about to drop from Lawrence’s camp and as soon as we confirm we will release it, so stay tuned!
