*Danielle Nicolet scored the female lead in “Central Intelligence,” the new Kevin Hart/Dwayne Johnson buddy comedy from Warner Bros and New Line Cinema.

As previously reported, the film follows a mild-mannered accountant (Hart) who hears from a former classmate (Johnson) who was bullied in high school. The guy the accountant remembers as a loser now kills for the CIA and talks him into helping thwart a plot to sell military secrets.

Nicolet will play Maggie, the wife of Hart’s character who was his high school sweetheart. The actress recurs on “The Game” and other recent credits include “Family Tools,” “Key & Peele” and “Elementary”.

Rawson Marshall Thurber is directing from a script by Ike Barinholtz and David Stassen.
