Jennifer Saunders Promises GLEE's Chris Colfer a Role in Upcoming ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS Film
Jennifer Saunders is making headway with the Absolutely Fabulous film. And, according to Zap2it, she has promised Glee's Chris Colfer a role.
She joked, "You know 'Glee,' I've promised Chris Colfer that he can be in it, and I've said it so often that now he has to be in it. I've promised so many people they're going to be in it and I haven't even written it. I'm not going to tell you (how much has been written) because it frightens me. Let's just say it's early stages but I will not renege on that bet."

Saunders is planning on having the script finished by the end of next year.
'Absolutely Fabulous', also known as Ab Fab, is a British sitcom created by the 53-year old Jennifer Saunders and is based on an original idea by her and Dawn French. Saunders, who plays the leading character on show, pens the scripts as well.
The show also stars Joanna Lumley and Julia Sawalha, along with June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks. The series features Saunders as Edina Monsoon, an alcoholic, drug-abusing PR agent who spends her time chasing bizarre fads in a desperate attempt to stay young and "hip". Edina is joined in her quest by magazine editor Patsy Stone, her best friend and enabler, whose drug abuse, alcohol consumption, and promiscuity far eclipse Edina's comparatively mild self-destructive behavior.
