The Big Bang Theory co-star Melissa Rauch is joining Owen Wilson, Zach Galifinakis and Amy Poehler on the cast of the romantic dramedy You Are Here. The actress will play an over-dressed and over-coiffed call-girl in the movie, which is about a weatherman (Wilson) whose father’s death leads him and his best friend (Galifinakis) on a journey to find a healthy relationship, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

On The Big Bang Theory, Rauch plays the adorable Bernadette. Most of her credits come from television, with guest appearances on The Office and short-lived roles on True Blood and the NBC comedy series Kath & Kim, but Rauch has been branching out to the big screen in recent years. She played a small part in the bromantic comedy I Love You, Man, and she recently wrapped a role in the indie drama In Lieu of Flowers. Rauch also tried her hand at writing, directing and producing with the short comedy film The Condom Killer in 2009.

The feature, which shoots later this month, will be the directorial debut of Mad Men creator Matt Weiner. Rauch played a big part in The Big Bang Theory‘s season finale; you can check out the wedding scene between her and Howard below.
