Deadline reports that Dwayne Johnson and Stephen Merchant’s upcoming wrestling comedy Fighting With My Family has added two more stars to its tale of filial facebusters and familial Frankensteiners. Edgar Wright alum Nick Frost and Game Of Thrones’ Lena Headey have both joined the cast of the film, which tracks the rise of WWE wrestler Paige, and her complicated relationship with her parents and brother, all of whom are professional wrestlers as well.


Johnson announced the castings earlier today on Twitter; there’s no word yet what parts either Frost or Headey will play. They’ll join a cast that already includes Florence Pugh as Paige, and Jack Lowden as her brother Zak.
