LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "The Other Guys" has found a girl.

Eva Mendes has joined the cast of Adam McKay's next comedy, "The Other Guys," as have Michael Keaton and Damon Wayans Jr.

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg star as cops in the action-comedy scheduled for an August release by Sony. McKay and Chris Henchy ("Land of the Lost") wrote the screenplay (formerly titled "The B Team").

Mendes is touring the festival circuit in Werner Herzog's "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans." She next appears in the Miramax drama "Last Night," scheduled for a March release. Keaton just shepherded his directorial debut, "The Merry Gentleman," into theaters. He voiced Ken in "Toy Story 3," which hits theaters in June.

Wayans was a writer, actor and story editor on his father's sitcom "My Wife and Kids." He also co-starred in the Paramount comedy "Dance Flick."
