“Grimsby,” the upcoming spy spoof starring Sacha Baron Cohen, has added Gabourey Sidibe, “Homeland” alum David Harewood, “Hercules” actor Ian McShane and English comedian Johnny Vegas to the cast.

The story centers on a British black ops spy (Mark Strong) who’s forced to go on the run and team up with his idiotic English football hooligan brother, played by Baron Cohen. The roles of the new additions to the cast currently are under wraps.

“Now You See Me” helmer Louis Leterrier is directing the Sony film from a script by Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham.

Harewood played David Estes, the deputy director of the CIA’s counterterrorism center, on Showtime’s hit “Homeland.” His upcoming films include “Free in Deed” and “Superbob.”

Sidibe, the breakout star in 2009′s “Precious,” most recently appeared on hit FX show “American Horror Story: Coven”; her recent film credits include Shailene Woodley-starrer “White Bird in a Blizzard” and “Seven Psychopaths.”
