Scene-stealer Billy Porter is headed for the big screen, with the Emmy and Tony-winning actor starring in Paramount's upcoming comedy Like A Boss.

And, if the new NSFW trailer is anything to go by, the movie looks like a dish of diverse comedy gold - with Porter's co-stars including Rose Byrne, Tiffany Haddish, Jennifer Coolidge and Salma Hayek.

Take. Our. Money.

The movie's official synopsis reads: “Best friends Mia and Mel (Haddish and Byrne) are living their best lives running their own cosmetics company they’ve built from the ground up. Unfortunately, they’re in over their heads financially, and the prospect of a big buyout offer from a notorious titan of the cosmetics industry, Claire Luna (Salma Hayek), proves too tempting to pass up, putting Mel and Mia’s lifelong friendship in jeopardy."

It adds: "The beauty business is about to get ugly.”

In one scene depicted in the trailer, Porter is shown being fired by Byrne and Haddish - clapping loudly to silence the pair before saying: "Witness... my... tragic... moment."

He then gets up and leaves the restaurant, pressing himself up against the building's window like a lost puppy.

Drama AND comedy? Someone give this man a Golden Globe.
