Frankie Valli has signed up to play a club owner in comedy And So It Goes.

The 78-year-old singer, famous for performing with his Four Seasons bandmates, is set to appear in Rob Reiner's upcoming comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are already on board, with the actor playing a "self-centred and eccentric" estate agent whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son suddenly leaves him with a granddaughter he never knew.

But with the help of his neighbour - Diane's character - he stubbornly learns to care and unexpectedly fall in love again.

As Good As It Gets screenwriter Mark Andrus wrote the screenplay.

Frankie, who will return to the UK with the Four Seasons in June, has made several appearances on the big screen, with his last role in indie sports drama Opposite Corners.

He has also featured on TV, playing mobster Rusty Millio in the fifth and sixth series of The Sopranos and appearing in TV movie Witness To The Mob in 1998.
