Despite Howard Stern’s controversial remarks that the Gabourey Sidibe will have trouble getting more work in Hollywood because of her size (Howard Stern Goes In On Oprah & Gabourey Sidibe), a source has exclusively revealed that the Precious Oscar nominee is going to be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live!
“It literally just happened,” the source said of the deal.
No word on an exact date yet, but Jennifer Lopez hosts this Saturday.
Sidibe also has a recurring role on Showtime’s upcoming The Big C, about a teacher (Laura Linney) living with cancer. Sidibe plays one of her sassy students. The series is set to premiere in August.
