Maria Bello, who recently signed on to play Kevin James' wife in Adam Sandler's upcoming made-in-Boston film called "Lake House," is doing double duty in Boston after snagging a role in the downsizing drama "The Company Men."
The actress was spotted last week at the shoot with Tommy Lee Jones in the South End on Thursday, April 16 and Friday, April 17. Bello is playing the VP of human resources, who is forced to fire the character played by Affleck.
Also, Chris Cooper has officially signed on to the made-in-Boston flick with Lowell native Maryann Plunkett playing his wife. Cooper will play a white-collar employee whose job is also about to be terminated.
Bello, who shot scenes for "The Company Men" last week in Boston, is now in Los Angeles for two days to take part in a summit on women's issues in Africa. The actress, along with a handful of other leading ladies, will join California first lady Maria Shriver at a welcoming luncheon at Los Angeles' Skirball Cultural Center.
