Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and judge on NBC’s “The Voice,” will be joining the star-studded cast of the indie comedy “The Clapper,” TheWrap has learned.

The musician-actor will be playing opposite Amanda Seyfried, Tracy Morgan, Russell Peters, Ed Helms, Leah Remini, P.J. Byrne and Mickey Gouch, Jr.

“The Clapper,” written and directed by Dito Montiel from his own book of the same name, centers on an expert clapper for infomercials who gets noticed by a late-night talk show host.

The professional clapper’s appearance on the show ends up costing him his job as well as his relationship.

Levine will take on the role of Ralph Ranter, a film producer in charge of running a late night show that ends up ruining the clapper’s life. The clapper will be played by Helms.

Peters is signed to play the role of the talk-show host. The comedian-turned-actor is best known for his satirical performances on race relations and stereotypes.

Levine is best known for 10 seasons of judging on “The Voice,” but his film and TV credits include “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Begin Again” opposite Keira Knightley and FX’s “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

This will be Montiel’s seventh film. He has worked with Liam Hemsworth, Emma Roberts and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in “Empire State” as well as Robin Williams in “Boulevard.”
