She'll play the mall cop's love interest in the Sony sequel, which is being directed by Andy Fickman
“Revolution” alum Daniella Alonso has been cast as Kevin James’ love interest in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2,” an individual familiar with Sony's sequel told TheWrap.
Andy Fickman is directing the film, which is being produced by Adam Sandler's company Happy Madison.
The sequel finds Blart attending a Security Guard Expo in Las Vegas, where he takes on a group of dangerous art thieves.
Alonso will play Divina Martinez, the general manager of the Wynn Hotel, who is completely perplexed when Blart presumes that she's hitting on him. Flustered yet determined to clarify the situation, she reaches out to Blart several times, only to reinforce his original theory.
Alonso, who next stars on NBC's upcoming summer series “The Night Shift,” recently played fan favorite Nora Clayton on the network's hit series “Revolution.” She's represented by the Gersh Agency and Luber Roklin Entertainment.
