Light makes pic debut in ‘Toscano’

She grabs role opposite Sutherland, Redgrave, Heston

Judith Light, best known for her role on the ABC sitcom “Who’s the Boss?,” will make her feature film debut in the indie drama “Toscano,” which shoots in Italy in June.

Light joins Donald Sutherland, Charlton Heston, Vanessa Redgrave and Linda Grave in the pic about a couple whose love affair is rekindled in middle age. Light is to portray the couple’s best friend. Dan Gordon (“Murder in the First”) scripted “Toscano” and will also direct and produce.

In June, Light’s new sitcom “The Simple Life” is to premiere on CBS. It’s produced by Montrose Prods., in association with TriStar Television. Light stars as a New York host of a homemaking TV show whose life is turned upside down when she moves the show to the country. Robert Sternin, Prudence Fraser and Pam Norris are the exec producers.

Light’s “Toscano” deal was brokered by her agent Nicole Pfeffer at ICM.
