Actor Michael Sheen is joining the cast of independent film Admission, a comedy starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd.

The 43-year-old actor, who dated Fey's character Liz Lemon in 30 Rock, will once again play her stiff British boyfriend in the film, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The Paul Weitz directed film is about an unmarried college admissions counsellor (Fey) who strikes up a romance with a man (Rudd) she knew when she was in school.

The film is expected to go on floors in May in New York.

Sheen most recently starred in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.

This year, he will be seen in part two of the last film in the Twilight franchise as well as Terrence Malick's latest project, whose cast includes Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Rachel Weisz.
