Absolutely Fabulous movie adds Chris Colfer to cast
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.
