Deadline is reporting that CW dramedy pilot Glamorous has added Chester Lockhart (RuPaul’s Drag Race) and newcomer Brady Dalton Richards. Lockhart will play non-binary drag performer Dizmal, who opens Marco’s eyes to the queer nightlife in their city, while Richards is set as Ben, an endearing young assistant who develops a workplace crush on Marco.
This would be Lockhart’s most significant television acting credit to date, with his scripted work primarily consisting of small roles on HitRECord on TV, Victorious, and RuPaul’s Drag Race. Richards, meanwhile, has no previous television experience. The two join a cast that features Peyton List, Susan Santiago, Brooke Shields, Jade Payton, and Pierson Fode.
