According to Vulture, Archer star Judy Greer has been cast in 20th Century Fox’s Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes sequel, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, as Caesar (Andy Serkis)’s love interest, a chimp called Cornelia.

“For so long I haven’t been able to say anything about it,” said Greer, “so this is exciting! It’s a very different kind of work than I’m used to. I’m not going to be wearing Manolo Blahniks in this one.

“I married a man who … I’m gonna use the word obsessed. He is obsessed with Planet Of The Apes. We had a chimp husband-and-wife cake topper at our wedding. At the cocktail hour, we played Planet Of The Apes and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes on two separate televisions in the bar area.

“And on the wedding gift I bought him, a vintage Rolex, I had it engraved, ‘Ape shall not kill ape.’ I was then told that, technically, it’s ‘Ape shall never kill ape,’ but there wasn’t enough space for engraving purposes.”

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is due in cinemas 23 May 2014. Buy Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes on DVD for £5 or Blu-ray for £10 from Amazon.co.uk.
