A Peek At Gabourey Sidibe’s First Post-”Precious” Role In Showtime’s “The Big C”


Showtime has debuted the trailer of its upcoming dramedy, The C Word, giving us our first look at Gabourey Sidibe in non-Precious form.

We’ve previously talked about the series, which will debut this August, so long-time readers should be familiar. If you’re not, a quick search of the site should catch you up.

Sidibe was originally cast in a guest star role in the Laura Linney-starrer, but, likely partly due to the success of Precious, and her Academy Award nomination, producers made her a full-time character on the show!

The below trailer seems to show a character that’s somewhat closer to her real-life persona, but I’m not particularly interested in watching this. Not because of Sidibe, by the way; the story, from all I’ve heard of it thus far, just doesn’t interest me. I don’t have cable TV anyway! But I’m sure it’ll be of interest to some of you ;)

Watch the trailer below, and share your thoughts:

  • OMG! This looks like a really good show and Gabby looks like she is going to be fab in it. WIN!

    Ha! Looks interesting enough. I don’t have cable either, and I can’t see myself buying into the drama just to watch this show, but I think you have to admit that EVERYBODY hates a mean fat person. LMAO. I think there is this idea that if you’re going to be that gross to look at, the least you can do is try to be pleasant! LMAO (speaking as a former fatty who spent way to much of my life being nice just because… currently seeking my inner Bitch). LMAO Just kidding. I’m still nice, but a little too honest to ever win Ms. Congeniality. lol

    Looks cute, but I get my weekly required dosage of quirky white woman “finding herself” from The United States of Tara.

    Looks lame. I’ll stick with 24 and Damages

    It looks interesting. Congrats to Gabby for getting a gig. I probably won’t ever watch this.
