Jamie Chung has signed up to appear in 'Office Christmas Party'.

The 'Big Hero 6' actress is one of three new additions to the star-studded cast of the upcoming comedy, along with Tony award nominee Da'Vine Joy Randolph and Deadpool's Karan Soni.

The trio join previously-announced cast members Olivia Munn, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, T.J. Miller and Kate McKinnon in the movie, which will be set around the annual alcohol-fuelled festivities of a business' Yuletide bash.

Details of who any of the actors are playing are so far unknown, as is the plot, but it has been confirmed that 'Bad Teacher' writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky and TV writer Laura Solon will be responsible for creating the festive-themed jokes.

Shooting on the movie - which will be directed by 'Blades of Glory' helmers Josh Gordon and Will Speck - is about to begin in Atlanta, with a release date set for December 9.

This won't be Jamie's first venture into comedy, as she has previously appeared in the 'Hangover' sequels and Adam Sandler's 'Grown Ups', as well as indie pictures 'Bad Johnson' and 'Flock of Dudes'.

The 32-year-old star can next be seen reprising her role as Mulan in ABC show 'Once Upon a Time'.
