Gabourey Sidibe and Michael Pena Grab Roles In ‘Tower Heist’

He can’t resist a photo op.

The 1st Assistant Camera on Brett Ratner‘s The Tower Heist had better not forget to put a long lens on the order. Precious star Gabourey Sidibe has picked up at unknown role on the film, as has "Eastbound and Down’s" very funny Michael Pena.

They’ll join Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in the film that pits the little guy against a crooked Bernie Madoff type played by Alan Alda. Other than that, we don’t have a lot of details. But now we know that the heist most likely won’t involve taking the stairs. And before you chastise me in the comments section for making a fat joke at Sidibe’s expense, you should know it was a lazy joke at Pena’s expense. And no, not because he’s Mexican. Man, I can’t win with you guys. (Deadline)
