Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe is proving to many that she won’t disappear anytime soon. According to a press release from Showtime, Gabby has just signed a deal to star as a recurring guest in the dark comedy series “The Big C.” The series will star Laura Linney as Cathy, a “repressed suburban wife and mother who reclaims her life after a terminal cancer diagnosis” and Oliver Platt (from 2012) as her “immature, but well-meaning husband.” Gabby will play a student in Cathy’s class with an attitude. “The Big C” is expected to premiere in late summer.
In addition, Gabby will star along side Zoe Kravitz in a project from Sundance called “Yelling to the Sky,” written and directed by Victoria Mahoney. The last time Gabby started in a film that was shown at the Sundance film festival, she went on to get nominated for an Academy Award.
Who’s eating their words now, Howard Stern?
