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

Sagittarius:

You're moody and sensitive, especially when it comes to family matters. Although you should make a big change, emotional ties to home are holding you back. Stop making excuses for your failure to act. Just take a leap of faith. Your nearest and dearest will learn to live without your constant presence. Becoming more independent will actually strengthen your relationships, not weaken them. Start looking for your own place to live.More
