OK, it's just for a movie, but still! Nice!
Ellen and Julianne have signed on to play lovers in Freeheld, an upcoming indie drama about a policewoman kept from leaving her pension to her domestic partner.
If that sounds familiar, that may be because it's based on the moving documentary short of the same name that won the Oscar in 2007.
Sounds like a real tearjerker, but also an important story of gay rights!
And Ellen is the perfect person for the part!
