LOS ANGELES, April 18 (UPI) -- Thandie Newton, Cuba Gooding Jr., Eddie Griffin and Terry Crews have joined Eddie Murphy in the cast of the comedy "Norbit."

Gooding will play Newton's boyfriend, Griffin will portray a retired pimp and Crews, from "Everybody Hates Chris, plays one of the in-laws, Variety said.
