THR exclusively reports actor, rapper and stand-up comedian Katt Williams has joined the cast of Scary Movie 5!

The actor has landed a starring role in the movie that is being directed by Malcolm Lee from a script by David Zucker.  Despite recent troubles with the law and a public dispute with actor Faizon Love, Williams seems to be on the come-up.

Williams will join Lindsay Lohan, Mike Tyson, Heather Locklear and Charlie Sheen in the fifth outing of the popular spoof franchise.

Kate Walsh, Ashley Tisdale and Lil Duval also co-star.

Williams is best known for his character Money Mike in the movie Friday After Next. He also is widely recognized for his three seasons on Nick Cannon’s improv series Wild N’ Out and has starred in skits and videos for such artists as Lil Jon, E-40, The Game, Lil’ Kim, Ludacris, Outkast, T.I., Oprah Winfrey and Lyfe Jennings.
