Criss joins Wiig on Imogene film

Darren Criss has landed a role in Imogene

Darren Criss will be making his film debut alongside Kristen Wiig in Imogene.

Producer Celine Rattray confirmed the news that the Glee star will appear opposite Kristen and Annette Bening in the poignant drama, in which he has been cast as Kristen's screen lover.

"He would play a younger love interest. When Kristen goes back home from New Jersey she falls for someone," she told Vulture.

Bridesmaids star Kristen's character is a woman who fakes suicide in an attempt to reunite with an ex-boyfriend, but ends up having to live with her gambling addict mum (Annette) - whose fashion sense apparently channels hit TV show Jersey Shore.

"Kristen Wiig plays a girl from New Jersey, who... is embarrassed about her family in New Jersey, like it's Jersey Shore," Celine continued.

"She gets sent back to live with her mother in New Jersey, played by Annette Bening, who is a tacky Jersey Shore mother, with her outfits and make-up, and then it becomes about her family reconnecting.

"She's the mother who's a little inappropriate all the time, nothing is ever too much, and it's going to be fun," she added.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
