Brown joins previously revealed cast members Tessa Thompson (Lady), Justin Theroux (Tramp), Thomas Mann (Jim Dear), and Kiersey Clemons (Darling).
“Lady and the Tramp” tells the story of an American Cocker Spaniel named Lady, who is owned by Jim Dear, Darling, and their new baby. In the 1955 animated film, Aunt Sarah (voice of Verna Felton) arrives to babysit with her two Siamese cats in tow. The trouble-making cats, Si and Am, pretend that Lady attacked them. Aunt Sarah brings Lady to get a muzzle, but Lady escapes and meets the street-smart Tramp.
Yvette Nicole Brown currently has a recurring role on the CBS sitcom “Mom.”
The live-action version of “Lady and the Tramp,” directed by Charlie Bean, is expected to premiere on Disney’s new streaming service after it launches in 2019.
