Trailer: Gabourey Sidibe in 'The Big C'

Take a peek at her next role as a recurring character in Showtime's new dramedy.


She's only in this clip for a few seconds, but Gabourey Sidibe will appear in Showtime's The Big C, which debuts in August. After the success of Precious, Sidibe was upped from a guest star to a more permanent spot on the show. Yes, she's playing another student, but she seems to be playing a role that's closer to her spunky personality. Take a look.
