The role of the fairy godmother in Sony’s upcoming live-action Cinderella movie will be played by a homosexual man.
Billy Porter, 50, has been known for his current role as Pray Tell in the FX ballroom drama Pose, as well as for the extravagant hats and dresses he wears. Due to be released in 2021, Sony’s version of the classic Cinderella tale has been billed as a modern story that features an orphan girl who finds true love with a prince despite years of enslavement by her wicked stepmother. The role of Prince Charming reportedly has not yet been cast.
The Emmy Award-winning Porter plays the role of a fairy godmother who grants a wish to Cinderella, who is played by popular Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello. According to a statement from Sony, Cabello will be “integrally involved in the music for the film.” The production is being directed by Kay Cannon, who has helmed the Pitch Perfect movie franchise, as well as several television productions.
