Christina Hendricks has apparently signed up to star with Chris Colfer in new indie movie Struck By Lightning.

The Mad Men beauty is joining the Glee actor in the coming-of-age comedy along with Dermot Mulroney and Modern Family's Sarah Hyland, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film, which Chris wrote himself, opens with his character being struck by lightning and tells the story in flashbacks of how he blackmailed other high school students to contribute to a literary magazine.

The West Wing's Allison Janney will also star in the film, directed by Brian Dannelly, who has worked on hit show Weeds and Pushing Daisies.

TV stars Christina and Chris are both set to battle it out at the Emmy awards in September.

Fortunately, you have a group of loved ones who know the real you. Arrange to meet with your favourite people for a festive dinner.More
