(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) – Kevin Smith has cast former porn star Traci Lords and The Office star Craig Robinson in his new project, Zack & Miri Make a Porno. The duo joins Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks, and Jason Mewes in the movie, which is about two lifelong pals who get their friends together to make a porno so they can raise money to pay off a debt. Also on board are Ricky Mabe (ABC Family's Beautiful People), Jeff Anderson (Clerks II), and Katie Morgan (HBO's Katie Morgan: A Porn Star Revealed). Zack & Miri is the latest collaboration between Smith, Bob and Harvey Weinstein, and producer Scott Mosier, the team behind Clerks, Clerks II, Chasing Amy, and Dogma. Production on Porno starts this week. Lords' previous ''legit'' movie projects include Novel Romance and Blade. Robinson plays Darryl on The Office and recently completed work on Pineapple Express, which was written by Rogen, and the Will Hartman comedy The Frequency of Claire. (Hollywood Reporter)
