Antoni Porowski / Netflix

The latest project starring Jim Parsons, “Spoiler Alert,” has been in development for over three years now, which by Hollywood standards isn’t all that long, but the longer these things linger, it’s often the case that they become less likely to ever see the light of day. So it’s excellent news that more cast members have just been added to the project. The Michael Showalter drama based on Michael Ausiello’s memoir about being a caretaker for his terminally ill partner, photographer Kit Cowan, already had Parsons, Ben Aldridge and Sally Field in place. But now more names have signed on, including Tony Award winner Nikki M. James (“The Book of Mormon”), Jeffery Self (“Search Party”), Bill Irwin (“Rachel Getting Married”) and “Queer Eye” food guy Antoni Porowski. The addition of extra cast is welcome because it means cameras roll soon – we hope – and the addition of Porowski is particularly nice news because if craft services doesn’t show up he can make snacks for the crew.
