Angela Bassett has joined the cast of the new Bernie Mac comedy "Mr 3000", reports The Hollywood Reporter. Being directed by "Drumline" helmer Charles Stone, "Mr. 3000" centers on a retired Detroit Tigers player (Mac) who comes out of retirement when three of his base hits are disallowed, dropping him below the prized 3,000-hit plateau. Bassett will play a sports reporter who is Mac’s love interest in the film.
