Los Angeles: ‘Rescue Me’ actress Olivia Crocicchia has been cast in the indie comedy ‘Terri,’ opposite John C Reilly.

Directed by Azazel Jacobs, ‘Terri’ centers on a large 14-year-old boy in a small town as he struggles to adjust to his difficult life. Crocicchia will play Heather, a pretty but sad girl who helps Terri cope with a frequently hostile world.

The film was written by novelist Patrick deWitt (‘Ablutions’). Shooting began last week in Los Angeles.

Crocicchia plays the younger daughter of Denis Leary`s character on FX`s ‘Rescue Me.’ She also stars in the indie drama ‘The Wheeler Boys,’ which screened at the recent Los Angeles Film Festival.
