CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Deadline reports:

Billy Porter has confirmed he’ll be joining Sony’s upcoming adaptation of Cinderella. In a Q&A Saturday evening at the New Yorker Festival, Porter told attendees he’ll play the Fairy Godmother opposite Camila Cabello, who’s set to star as the glass slipper-wearing lead character.

As Deadline reported earlier this week, Porter had been in talks to join the film and was nearing a deal. The actor, who recently won an Emmy for his role as Pray Tell in Pose, also said he’ll be directing an episode of the FX drama in the near future.
