Jason Sudeikis has signed up to star in 'Dog Fight'.

The 'Saturday Night Live' star will join Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in the comedy about rival politicians in South Carolina vying for a seat in the US congress.

It is unclear who Jason will play in the film, while Sarah Baker and Katherine LaNasa have also signed up to the project.

'Dinner For Schmucks' director Jay Roach will begin shooting the movie in November from a script written by Shawn Harwell and 'Land Of The Lost's Chris Henchy.

Jason previously starred in comedy 'Horrible Bosses' and compared it to "actors' fantasy camp" because he got to work with his idols Colin Farrell and Donald Sutherland.

He said: "Colin was great, he really got into it, they really changed his look. It was really, really fun with both of them, I didn't find out until the day before we started shooting that Donald Sutherland would be playing the other part, he's so great, I grew up adoring him on film, he's made so many wonderful movies. To see them play against each other as father and idiot son, then me being caught in the middle, that felt like actors fantasy camp on my side of things."
