Amanda Bynes, last seen in gender-bending rom-com She’s The Man, has joined the cast of the new Hairspray musical movie.

She’ll play Penny Pingleton, the best friend to lead character Tracy Turnblad, who has yet to be cast. Also starring will be John Travolta (in drag, don’t forget) and Queen Latifah.

Adam Shankman is directing and choreographing and plans to start rehearsals this summer. The film will be out next year.
