The good news keeps coming for Gabourey Sidibe! First she’s an Academy Award nominee for “Precious,” now it looks like she may be headed to cable after taping a new Showtime pilot. Pop the hood for the details on her next hefty role:
Despite her lack of experience acting before Precious, Gabourey says she will continue to pursue acting as a career:
“I’d like to continue acting for as long as possible, just shot a pilot for a Showtime series, ‘The Big C’… I’m really excited to see what other roles are out there for me.”
“The Big C” also stars Laura Linney, who plays a woman dealing with cancer in a humorous way.
Seems like Hollyweird is full of out of work Black actresses, but Gabourey just walks into one audition and now she’s the toast of the town. Good for her, but we gotta wonder if Countess Vaughn is sitting on her butt implants somewhere PISSED!
