She's set to play Miss Adelaide during a short eight-week run starting in June.

Growing up in Sydney, Wilson trained at the Australian Theatre for Young People, where she starred in a large number of stage productions, so she has plenty of previous. She’ll be appearing at the Phoenix Theatre in London for an eight-week run, beginning on June 28th and ending on August 21st.

The grime MC has made no secret of his love for Adele’s music.

Rebel Wilson has taken the world by storm after arriving in America five years ago.
Since then, her career has included Bridesmaids, two Pitch Perfect hits, the last Night at the Museum romp and now the rom-com How to Be Single.
"I think I came to Hollywood at the exact right time," she says, "because my first job was Bridesmaids. I auditioned for Melissa McCarthy's role and didn't get it, but they liked me so much they added me into the film. And then that movie was just a massive hit the following year. And that spawned all these amazing female comedies, including Pitch Perfect. In these female ensembles the women can be outrageous and bawdy. I think it's becoming the norm. Now they're really encouraging us to do more R-rated, super-edgy, honest kind of material."

The Australian actress really laid into the Kardashians and the exposure they enjoy in a new radio interview.
Rebel Wilson is most certainly not a fan of the Kardashians. The Pitch Perfect star took aim at the first family of American television in a new interview, saying that their fame and exposure is “not really based on talent”.
“I got asked to present with Kendall and Kylie [Jenner] at the recent MTV VMAs and I said, 'No.' I said I'd do it myself,” the comic actress revealed. Apparently, if it had happened, the bit would have involved Rebel dressing up as Kendall and Kylie’s elder half-sister Kim Kardashian. Thank God that didn’t happen, with Wilson ultimately presenting the award for Best Hip Hop Video alone wearing a police stripper costume.

Bryan Cranston and Rebel Wilson slip into the roles of a couple of new black and white bears
After absorbing a role in which his character chillingly referred to himself as "the danger", Bryan Cranston’s new cuddly bear character is a long way from Heisenberg that audiences were previously delighted with. Casting aside drugs, violence and a fair dose of evil, Cranston has teamed up with Jack Black’s squeezeable Po in everyone’s favourite black and white bear film franchise, Kung Fu Panda 3.
Po (Jack Black) finds his father, Li (Bryan Cranston) in Kung Fu Panda 3
Instalment number three sees Po reunited with his father Li Shan, played by Cranston, who is the exact opposite of Walter White in the fact that he’s very chilled out, likes a party and is a panda.

Let The Rock teach you a thing or two about earthquakes.
This year’s recipe for a successful movie really has only one ingredient: The Rock. I don’t know when a former WWE wrestler-turned-comic-relief-go-to became The Guy to call for a blockbuster project, but it is what it is. Case in point: San Andreas, which scored an easy victory at the box office this weekend.
The Rock is here to save everyone (well, a couple of people anyway.)
With $53,2 million in domestic earnings, the earthquake disaster flick brought the thunder (or the shake, if you will) to the box office over the last weekend of May. According to Forbes, the movie went above and beyond early tracking predictions.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, in a recent interview, claimed ageism is still rife in Hollywood.
Maggie Gyllenhaal was told 37 was too old to play the lover of a 55-year-old male character. The Honourable Woman actress was turned down for a part in a film because she was considered past her prime, according to one film's casting executives. Gyllenhaal described the humiliation and anger she felt after receiving such poor treatment and, in a recent interview, called the casting community, and Hollywood at large, out on their ageism and hypocrisy.

The ‘Pitch Perfect’ star has been accused of lying about her age, but has proof she’s 35 been found?
Pitch Perfect 2 actress Rebel Wilson has been at the center of an identity controversy this week, after an Australian tabloid accused her of lying about her age and real name. But while the actress has so far denied the claims the evidence might now be too much for her to ignore, as another Australian newspaper has done even more digging into her past.
Wilson has been hit by rumours that she’s actually 35.
On Monday an article titled ‘Will the real Rebel Wilson please stand up?,’ appeared on the website of Woman’s Day magazine, claiming the star was actually 36 (not 29) and that her real name was Melanie Elizabeth Bownds.

The Australian star unexpectedly revealed that she dislikes performing karaoke, unlike her "Fat Amy" character from the box office topper.
With Pitch Perfect 2 sitting pretty at the top of American box offices, one of its stars has revealed that she secretly dislikes singing in public and will only do so if she’s getting paid.
Rebel Wilson, who plays Patricia “Fat Amy” in the popular film franchise, told Glamour magazine in a new interview that although fans may assume that she enjoys singing because her character does so in the movie, in real life she hates it!
“A lot of people think - because we sing in the movie and whatever - that we would do karaoke, but I have a thing against karaoke,” she revealed. “The microphones are never good quality, they have always been dropped, and a lot or people are screaming into them and the vocal sound quality is never the right mix and I'm like, 'No!' I'll sing in a movie when I'm getting paid.”

It's ladies' rule this weekend at the box office.
It’s Pitch Perfect 2 weekend and the Friday-Sunday box office reflects that. With an unexpected $70,3 million domestic gross, the musical comedy blew past Mad Max: Fury Road to become the box office champion this weekend.
Anna Kendrick returns in the musical comedy about rival Acapella groups.
Meanwhile, the Mad Max reboot made a modest $44.4 million, falling behind the Brownstone production flick, according to the LA Times. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and co. returnas members of the misfit college singing group the Bellas. Actress Elizabeth Banks – aka our favourite TV republican Avory Jessup (30 Rock) and second favourite Capitol citizen Effy Trinket (The Hunger Games) - makes her directorial debut, as well as reprises her role as an acerbic commentator.

There's was a lot more action to Pitch Perfect 2 than it seems.
The surprise hit of 2012 was Pitch Perfect, a comedy that has become a cult classic in the intervening years. So it's no surprise that it sparked a sequel. And the cast was up for the challenge. "To me, it felt like the pressure was off because I knew people wanted to see Pitch Perfect 2," says the film's star Anna Kendrick. "When you do almost every other film, you have no idea if anybody's going to be interested in sitting down and watching your stupid movie."
Pitch Perfect 2 unites the gang
For her the toughest part was getting her voice in shape to perform the a cappella numbers. "This is so much work," she admits. "You have to treat your body like a temple all the time. I could do it for a month, but sometimes I want to have fast food and a beer. I don't care for physical activity!"

In 2012, Pitch Perfect came out of nowhere to become one of the most-loved comedies in recent memory, and the good news is that this sequel matches it with both spiky humour and buoyant music. It would be impossible recreate the surprise of watching the original, but the cast and crew make up for that by kicking everything off with an outrageously rude prologue (complete with the biggest cameo imaginable), and the comedy that follows is relentlessly hilarious.
It's been three years, and the Bellas are now in their final year at university, having won three more a cappella National Championships along the way. Then they're disgraced by a wardrobe malfunction at a triumphant performance for the US President's birthday. Suspended by officials, their only chance to redeem themselves is to win the World Championships in Copenhagen. So Beca (Anna Kendrick) and her sidekicks Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) and Chloe (Brittany Snow) rally the troops to prepare to take on the fearsome reigning champions Das Sound Machine. And there's a new Bella on the team as well: freshman Emily (Hailee Steinfeld), who is dabbling in songwriting.
Along with this central plot, Kay Cannon's script also weaves in a series of side-stories for each of the central cast members involving decisions about the future and romantic entanglements. All of these are a bit feeble, but they add layers of comedy, drama and even some meaning, although there isn't a single surprise along the way. Still, it's consistently amusing, as every line of dialogue has a witty joke in it, and the performances crackle with improvisational silliness that's genuinely infectious. Once again, the seriously gifted Kendrick is effortlessly charismatic as the natural leader of the gang, while the class-clown Wilson steals every scene with her random gags. Steinfeld offers a fresh blast of energy and talent in her role, although the perky Snow is somewhat sidelined this time.

The 29-year-old actress insists she loves her unusual moniker and thinks there are worse things to be called.
Asked how her parents came up with it, she said: "A little girl named Rebel sang at my parents' wedding. My mum is really big on theme names like that - my sisters are called Liberty and Annachi, and my brother is Ryot. I did pretty well in comparison. I love it.
"You can't be a shrinking violet if you have a name like Rebel. It gives me an edge and helps me not give in to my fears. I try to live that way."
Meanwhile, the 'Pitch Perfect 2' star claims she only gets offered roles that other actresses turn down.

While Rebel Wilson is already talking about coming back for a third film, Anna Kendrick is appearing more hesitant, and waiting to see how 'Pitch Perfect 2' connects with audiences first.
'Pitch Perfect 2' isn't even out yet, but as with all things Hollywood these days, its already time to start talking about sequels. Following the huge success of the much-loved 2012 film, Rebel Wilson was one of the first people to get involved with the upcoming sequel only two months after the release. Again, she has expressed her interest in appearing in the third film, while Anna Kendrick seems to be more interested in waiting a while before jumping on board. Well, at least until the film is released.
'Pitch Perfect 2' is out on 15th May 2015
In a recent interview with TIME, Kendrick explained that "I'm not one to count my chickens, so I just want to see how this one does and find out if there's an appetite for that before I even think about it". 'Pitch Perfect 2' isn't out in theatres for another week, although it saw its US premiere in Las Vegas on 20th April 2015.
