Katharine McPhee has always wanted to act – and now she'll finally get a chance, in a new comedy from Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions.

According to EW.com, McPhee, 23, will costar with Anna Faris in the untitled movie, in which Faris plays a Playboy bunny evicted from Hugh Hefner's mansion.

She then takes on the role of den mother to the "lamest" sorority at a local college. McPhee will play a member of the sorority.

McPhee has long had acting ambitions: Pre-Idol, she dropped out of the Boston Conservatory during her sophomore year to audition for television pilots in her native L.A. And in January, she had a cameo on ABC's Ugly Betty.

But she's got some impressive footsteps in which to follow. Fellow Idol alum Fantasia Barrino is earning raves in Broadway's The Color Purple, and Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar for her movie debut in last year's Dreamgirls.
