Two years after she made her acting debut in (and scored an Academy Award nomination for) "Precious," Gabourey Sidibe is back.

The baby-faced 28-year-old actress -- who currently stars in Showtime's "The Big C" -- will next be seen in the big-screen flick "Tower Heist," which also happens to star Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Alan Alda and Casey Affleck.

That's one heck of an A-list cast.

In the movie, which hits theaters this November, Sidibe plays a maid. The plot revolves around victims of a Ponzi scheme run by Alda's character.

While playing an obese girl put Sidibe on the map, we're hoping this next role focuses less on her weight and more on her talent (did you catch her on "SNL"? She's hilarious!). And she actually seems to have slimmed down a bit since "Precious."

From Sidibe to Adele to Queen Latifah, let us know: Who is the most talented plus-sized star?
