American TV network HBO is lining-up a selection of top-drawer talent for its biopic of comic legend Peter Sellers.

MAID IN MANHATTAN star Stanley Tucci, who will play legendary film director Stanley Kubrick, and John Lithgow, who will portray Blake Edwards, are the two latest additions to the show.

They will join Geoffrey Rush in the title role, as well as Emily Watson and the gorgeous Charlize Theron as two of his wives.

The Life and Death of Peter Sellers commences production in Britain on 16 April (03).
