Fortune Feimster Leaves 'Chelsea Lately' for Tina Fey's Fox Comedy
Comedian Fortune Feimster has joined the cast of Tina Fey's Fox comedy.
Feimster will play Becca Morse, a popular and openly gay athlete, who is an extremely loud and raucous partier.
Feimster tweeted on Thursday, "Finally doing this acting thang and it's for Tina Fey! Lucky to be working for such strong, funny women."
She also posted on Facebook: "The bad news is that I'm no longer a writer on Chelsea Lately. The good news is that I'm still on the roundtable. The even better news is that it's all because I decided to pursue acting and I got cast in a Tina Fey pilot! Thank you to everyone for your continued support!"
The loveable Southern comic, Fortune Feimster, moved to Los Angeles in 2003 to pursue comedy after graduating Summa Cum Laude from Peace College in North Carolina. First she made a pit stop in Sevilla, Spain where she taught English, studied Spanish, and backpacked all over Europe for a year. Then with $25 in her pocket she landed in Los Angeles, slept on a friend's couch for a month, and hoped for the best.
