The cast list for this summer’s Williamstown Theatre Festival continues to grow with faces we know. Boston-bred actress Ari Graynor, who just filmed a pilot for the sitcom “Bad Teacher” and is at the Tribeca Film Festival this week as a juror, will star in the world premiere of Bess Wohl’s play about sandwich makers, “American Hero,” with Erin Wilhelmi, who just played one of Emma Watson’s pals in the movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” (She was Alice, the one who shoplifts jeans.) Meanwhile, Heather Lind, who starred with Al Pacino in “The Merchant of Venice,” will appear opposite Robert Sean Leonard in “Pygmalion.” Lind plays Katy on “Boardwalk Empire.”
