Simon Helpberg has signed on to join the cast of the Stephen Frears directed biopic FLORENCE.
He joins Meryl Streep in the film following the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress and socialite who coveted a career as a great opera singer, but lacked any real ability.
Hugh Grant is also signed on to the project, with Pathe International producing.
Helpberg is best known for his character Howard in the hit CBS series The Big Bang Theory.
