Ok, so the tweet wasn’t to us but rather her American Horror Story co-star Sarah Paulson, but we totes saw it so basically the same thing. JK


Fun little celeb fact: Gabourey Sidibe is half-Senegalese and has been to the continent before.

IMDB simply says that the production is a comedy centred around  the following plot line: "A new assignment forces a top spy to team up with his football hooligan brother."
