The story of Gabourey Sidibe joining the cast is a tale that could have been written by an old-school Hollywood publicist. At the exclusive Academy Awards party thrown by Madonna and her manager, Guy Oseary, there were Sidibe and Sacha Baron Cohen, one Oscar nominee chatting up another (Sidibe's nomination is for her performance in Precious (2009); Sacha Baron Cohen's for writing the screenplay for Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006)), about a role in an upcoming movie. "He was telling me how funny he thought I was, and I didn't believe him," says Sidibe. "But he asked me if I could do an African accent, so I lied and said yes, and then he asked me who represents me, and I was there with my manager, so I pointed her out and they talked. Two weeks later, my manager emails me - 'remember that movie you talked to Sacha Baron Cohen about at the party?' Well, I guess he was serious and he really did think I was funny."
