‘Queer’ guy Kressley fashions pic debut

Fashion guru joins Duff film

“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” star Carson Kressley has landed his first studio feature role.

Kressley will join the cast of comedy “The Perfect Man,” directed by Mark Rosman and starring Hilary Duff and Heather Locklear.

Kressley, the fashion expert on the Bravo show that makes over schlubs, is the first member of the Fab Five to land a film role.

Duff plays a young woman who tires of watching her mother date idiots and creates an imaginary secret admirer to bolster her confidence. Kressley will play her confidant and the uncle of the young man who proves to be a match for the young woman.

Marc Platt produces with Dawn Wolfrom and Susan Duff.

Kressley, who began as a fashion consultant for Ralph Lauren, signed with ICM after the show became a hit, hoping the agency could fashion a film career for him.

Kressley’s reps worked it out so he could shoot his scenes in Toronto without missing any episodes of “Queer Eye,” which shoots in New York.
