Rebel Wilson To Play Jennyanydots in CATS movie

Latest news on casting for Cats the Movie is that Rebel Wilson is playing the old Gumbie cat Jennyanydots who  has a nocturnal penchant for dancing, cooking, and teaching mice. She has a reputation for being lazy and  spends her days seeking out the warm and sunny spots where she sits, and sits, and sits, and sleeps as the hours tick by. But when the moon rises, she's alive and bakes and fries, and teaches the mice "knitting, crocheting and tatting."

The Pitch Perfect star was last seen in London's West End playing Miss Adelaide in Guys & Dolls. Wilson joins a stellar cast that includes Jennifer Hudson (Grizabella),  Ian McKellen (Gus the Theatre Cat), Judi Dench (Deuteronomy), Idris Elba (Macavity), Taylor Swift, James Corden, and Royal Ballet principal dancers Steven McRae (Skimbleshanks) and Francesca Hayward (Victoria the white cat).

The cast has been rehearsing with director Tom Hooper at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire for a December 20th, 2019 movie release
