Our favorite cover girl and Oscar nominee, Gabby Sidibe, has been added to the cast of a new action comedy, “Tower Heist!” Sidibe joins a stellar cast of seasoned comedians that includes Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller.
According to Deadline, Sidibe and Michael Pena portray workers in a luxury high-rise who later discover that their pension funds have been emptied out by a white collar crook (played by Alda) a la Bernie Madoff.
This is Sidibe’s first major film role since starring in the Oscar-nominated movie, “Precious,” directed by Lee Daniel and co-starring Monique. Sidibe was recently featured in the “The Big C” cast.
According to Black Voices, Sidibe shot the indie film, “Yelling to the Sky,” which co-stars rocker girl, Zoë Kravitz.
“Tower Heist” begins filming in New York next month. The film has a November 4, 2011 release date.
Sidibe and Murphy should be a classic pair! What do you think about the pairing? Sound off!
