John Lithgow Joins ‘Pitch Perfect 3’


John Lithgow will star in Pitch Perfect 3 – which is currently filming in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Crown actor – who has an extensive background in musical theatre – has signed up to appear in the third installment of the popular musical comedy, Variety reports.

Plot details for the latest saga involving a cappella group Barden Bellas is being kept under wraps, so it hasn’t been revealed what role John, 71, will play in the movie.

Trish Sie is directing the film from a script written by Kay Cannon, assisted by Mike White and Dana Fox and some of the cast revealed last month they had begun filming.

Rebel Wilson – who plays Amy in the movie – shared a photo on Instagram with her co-stars Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow and captioned the image: “#PP3 #Bellas Day One Pitches x (sic).”

However, Skylar Astin – who played Anna’s on screen boyfriend and lead singer of a cappella group The Trebles, Jesse Swanson – has revealed he and the rest of the all-male vocal group won’t feature in Pitch Perfect 3, despite appearing in both Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2.
