Emmy-Nominated Comedian Joins Tina Fey's Fox Comedy Series THR
A comedy at Fox from Tina Fey and Matt Hubbard has added a popular comedian to the cast. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the untitled project cast Emmy nominee Margaret Cho as the president of a women’s college that opens its doors to men for the first time.
Cho’s character is described as “a divisive figure on campus” who “does her best to be welcoming of the male freshmen but is often irritated by their antics."
Production on the project, which has a series commitment, will start in March, the story says. Cho’s casting will provide a reunion for the actress with Fey, given that she played Kim Jong-Il and his son, Kim Jong-Un, on Fey’s “30 Rock.” Cho earned a guest actress Emmy nomination for the role, the story says.
