Just in time for filming to begin, Kevin Smith‘s Zack and Miri Make a Porno has added five new faces to its cast.

Joining the already-announced starring duo of Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks are Craig Robinson (NBC’s The Office), Traci Lords (Cry-Baby), Ricky Mabe (Frankenstein and Me), and Katie Morgan, as well as Jeff Anderson and Jason Mewes, both veterans of previous Smith productions.

In the film — which started shooting in Pittsburgh yesterday — Rogen and Banks play friends who decide to film a porno in order to help pay off their debts, only to discover their feelings for each other might be more complicated than they thought.

The Dimension production, currently without a firm release date, will mark the latest chapter in a long partnership between Smith, producer Scott Mosier, and Dimension/The Weinstein Company co-chairs Bob and Harvey Weinstein; previous outings have included Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Dogma.
