TRUE Blood star Deborah Ann Woll has joined the cast of a new indie dramedy from the makers of Little Miss Sunshine.

He Loves Me will also star Steve Coogan, Elliot Gould and Chris Messina along with previously announced headliners Annette Bening and Paul Dano.

The Fox Searchlight production is Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’ follow-up to Little Miss Sunshine and follows the fortunes of a young novelist (Dano) suffering from writer’s block and a broken heart who creates a dream girl that comes to life.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Woll – aka Jessica Hamby in True Blood – will play Dano’s ex-girlfriend, a writer who just finished new first novel.

Bening, meanwhile, is Dano’s hippie mother, while Zoe Kazan has been cast as Dano’s new love interest.
