Issa Rae is ready for her big screen takover. Get the deets on her new movie role, plus see what happens when Erykah Badu pops up on Yvonne Orji singing her track “Tyrone” inside…

She dominated YouTube. She’s currently taking over the television world. Now, she’s ready to take make her mark in the film industry.

“Insecure” star Issa Rae just nabbed her next project and she’ll be making her big screen debut. The Golden Globe nominee will star in the upcoming dramedy Empress Of Serenity, starring opposite Bill Hader.

Deadline reveals a short synopsis of the film:

Hader is aboard playing Sheldon, whose elaborate plan to win back his ex-wife is upended when he is guilted into a monthlong mega-cruise with his widowed father. Rae plays Michelle, a reclusive kindred spirit in the cabin next door who becomes both the aid and the obstacle in Sheldon’s plan.

Author/screenwriter Jesse Andrews will direct the film (making his directorial debut) and production is set to start in August.

Congrats Issa!

So THIS happened last night.

“Insecure” star Yvonne Orji hit the stage to channel her inner Erykah Badu at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort during BET’s “Leading Women Defined” lip sync event in Miami. And guess who was in the mix? Ms. Badu!

Yvonne serenaded the audience with Erykah’s classic single “Tyrone” (with Cynthia Erivo behind-the-scenes providing the actual vocals) and Ms. Badu couldn’t help herself. She had to get up to catch the vibes from the stage.

Peep the clips above and below:
