Bella Thorne is reporting for DUFF duty…
The16-year-old half-Cuban American actress has joined the cast of The DUFF, a teen comedy from CBS Films.
Directed by Ari Sandel, the film is an adaptation of the Kody Keplinger’syoung adult novel The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend).
The DUFF centers on Bianca (portrayed by Mae Whitman), an off-beat honor roll student who discovers she is considered the DUFF — designated ugly fat friend. She then enlists the help of her neighbor, a jock, to become less socially awkward so she can ask her longtime crush on a date.
