Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie just got even more fabulous with the addition of Chris Colfer. The film announced on its Facebook page that the Glee star has joined the cast of the British comedy.

 

In speaking with Larry King on Friday, Colfer revealed his Ab Fab character is a “hairdresser-slash-social media consultant.” “Jennifer Saunders is one of my heroes,” Colfer said. “I can’t believe she wrote the part for me.”

Kim Kardashian is set to make a cameo in the film, which Colfer called the “Real Housewives before the Real Housewives.” The sitcom — based on the British TV show of the same name — brings back Edina (Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) as their glamorous lives are overcome with media backlash after getting blamed for an incident at a fashionable launch party.

Filming of the Mandie Fletcher-directed movie will take place in the U.K. and south of France, with plans for a 2016 release date.
