According to Deadline, Broadway's Santino Fontana and Dania Ramirez have signed on to star in director Jay Silverman's upcoming indie romantic comedy GALILEO. The actors join previously announced cast members Makenzie Moss and Maria Conceit Alonso.

Jennifer Goldson penned the flick that will center on "an arrogant heir to a Mexican fast-food franchise that goes hunting for the next culinary big thing. He soon finds himself in a small New Mexican town, where foodies come from all over to salivate over the culinary treats of a local and feisty female chef."

Fontana can currently be seen in The CW comedy CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND. He most recently appeared on Broadway in the revival of Moss Hart's ACT ONE. His other Broadway credits include RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS , BILLY ELLIOT and SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE.
