The Hustlers cast may be packed, but there was one thing it was missing: a sexy-ass flute. Variety reports that is no longer a problem because Lizzo is now onboard for the drama based on Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine feature “The Hustlers at Scores,” about a group of strippers who start scamming their rich clients. She joins a cast that already includes Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles (as Pressler), Mercedes Ruehl, Trace Lysette, Cardi B, Mette Towley, Madeline Brewer, and, in a perfect world, Lizzo’s flute, which she should play onstage if she’s been cast as a dancer. We can’t think of a better distraction onstage at a strip club than Lizzo, a trained flutist, just whipping out her instrument and ensorcelling the clientele while her fellow dancers do crime.
