Busy Philipps joins the cast of Mean Girls Musical

Earlier we reported that Jenna Fischer joined the case of the Mean Girls Musical film. The latest addition to the cast is actor Busy Philipps. The actor will reportedly play the role of Mrs George, the mother of Regina George. In the original, Regina is the leader of the mean girls' group, Plastics. 

First adapted from Rosalind Wiseman's book Queen Bees and Wannabes, Mean Girls follows Cady Heron (originated by Lindsay Lohan), a teenager who recently moved back to the States where she is thrust into the complex and messy dynamics of high school. Soon, Cady finds herself swept into the popular clique of the school, The Plastics, after developing a crush on Aaron Samuels, the ex of head Plastic Regina George (Rachel McAdams). What started as an infiltration mission soon takes Cady down the path of becoming a full-blown Plastic herself.

Philipps' best-known romantic comedy film credits include I Feel Pretty, He's Just Not That Into You, and Made of Honor. She won a Critics Choice TV Award for a Supporting Role for her performance in the sitcom Cougar

Arturo Perez and Samantha Jayne will be directing the Mean Girls Musical with a screenplay from Tina Fey. Fey will also be reprising her role as Ms Norbury in the upcoming musical. Lorne Michaels will return to produce the musical alongside Fey. 

The film also stars Tim Meadows as Principal Duval, Renée Rapp as Regina George, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis Ian, Jaquel Spivey as Damian Hubbard, Avantika as Karen, Bebe Wood as Gretchen and Jenna Fischer as Mrs Heron. Mean Girls Musical does not have a release window yet.
