Kate McKinnon is about to experience what it’s like to live in a plastic world as she’s been tapped to appear in the “Barbie” live-action movie.

The 38-year-old comedian’s involvement in the project that stars Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken was announced exclusively via Deadline on Wednesday.

McKinnon is the latest star to join the ensemble cast that also includes “Ugly Betty” actress America Ferrera and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Dragons“ actor Simu Liu.

While Robbie’s and Gosling’s characters have already been confirmed, there’s no word yet on the roles that the other cast members are playing.

The live-action project will be directed by Greta Gerwig with the script she co-wrote with Noah Baumbach.

There is also no word on the plot of the film. Fans shouldn’t expect the typical dreamy life of “Barbie” characters from the animated films, however, since Gerwig has a track record for creating movies with serious and hard-hitting themes.

What’s only known is that the film will be based on the Mattel line of popular dolls that debuted in 1959. Considering Gerwig’s previous projects, the Oscar-nominated films “Lady Bird” and “Little Women,” it would be interesting to see how she would tackle and present the story to the audience, according to Collider.

Aside from starring in the movie, Robbie will be producing it through her LuckyChap production banner with Tom Ackerley. David Heyman and Robbie Brenner will also produce the project through Heyday Films and Mattel, respectively. LuckyChap’s Josey McNamara and Mattel’s Ynon Kreiz are executive producing.

This would be a reunion for McKinnon and Robbie who previously worked together on 2019’s “Bombshell.”

In addition to her work on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” McKinnon is also set to star as Carole Baskin in Peacock’s “Tiger King”-inspired series “Joe vs. Carole,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show is set to premiere next month after its first trailer was aired during the Super Bowl over the weekend.

McKinnon’s acting credits also include “The Spy Who Dumped Me,” “Friends From College,” “Office Christmas Party” and “Ghostbusters,” among others.
