Chelsea is expanding her range in a dark and dramatic role on the big screen while taking a brief break from her comedy tour!

Chelsea Handler is a best selling author, host of a nightly show on E! and spends most weekends traveling across the country doing stand-up — and now she is taking on even more! The comedienne has just signed on for a role in the new film Mall according to our sister site Deadline, likely to be filmed as she takes a brief break from her hectic touring schedule. This is one busy lady!

Chelsea was doing the rounds May 9 promoting her new book, Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me. She also had a book party in NYC May 7 at The Standard, hosted by rumored boyfriend Andre Balazs. The book allows her friends to recount some of the many practical jokes Chelsea has played on them, almost always to hilarious affect.

As for her upcoming role in Mall, Chelsea will be playing a “restless housewife,” a huge departure from her comedic side. Do you think Chelsea will be good in her new role HollywoodLifers?
