Jayma Mays (Glee) has been cast opposite Tom Cruise in Mena, Doug Liman’s drug-pilot drama from Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures. It’s a fact-based tale about Barry Seal (Tom), a pilot who was a gun runner and drug trafficker who transported contraband for the CIA and the Medellin cartel during the 1980s. The title refers to Mena, AR, where a lot of the illegal activity took place under the noses of Presidents Reagan and Bush and then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton. Mays will play Dana Sibota, the Assistant Attorney General of Arkansas. Foul-mouthed, unreasonable, demanding and the kind of boss everyone hates, she desperately wants to take Seal down. Mays voices Dulcinea in The Adventures Of Puss In Boots. Repped by UTA and Framework Entertainment, Mays next appears in Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp and Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant.
