In an about turn from his most familiar role as the worden on Fox’s ‘Alcatraz’, Jonny Coyne is set to tackle a comedy role in The Hangover III, due for release by Warner Bros. On May 24, 2013.

Coyne will join returning cast members Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis in the latest instalment of the comedy franchise about a group of friends with a knack for getting in serious trouble whenever a bachelor party rolls around. Todd Phillips is also returning to the project in the director’s role and Legendary will be co-financing with Warner Bros.

The plot is being kept firmly under wraps at this time and it is unclear exactly what role Coyne will have in the picture. In the meantime, Coyne, who recently signed with Lighthouse Entertainment, can soon be seen in Warner Bros upcoming ‘Gangster Squad’.
