Sherri Shepherd - Sherri Shepherd joins Ride Along 2

Sherri Shepherd has joined the cast of 'Ride Along 2'.

'The View' host - who will celebrate her final appearance on the talk show tomorrow (30.07.14) - has signed up to star alongside original cast members Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in the upcoming cop comedy sequel, Deadline reports.

Tim Story will return to direct the second instalment - which will again centre on security guard Ben Barber (Hart) and police officer James Payton (Ice Cube) - but it is so far unknown what role Shepherd will take on.

Olivia Munn is also said to be in talks to join the comedy - the script for which is currently being written by Clash of the Titan's Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay - as a no-nonsense homicide detective and love interest of Ice Cube.

The rapper will produce alongside Matt Alvarez for CubeVision, Will Packer for Will Packer Productions and Larry Brezner.

Meanwhile, Shepherd - who has starred on 'The View' for seven years - has been upping her comedy credits by appearing on series such as 'How I Met Your Mother', '30 Rock' and 'Hot In Cleveland'.

She also had her own self-titled sitcom 'Sherri' which aired on Lifetime television between 2005 and 2009.

'Ride Along 2' is slated for release on January 15 2016.
