They're going to make a movie version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard, and Glenn Close (from the original Broadway cast...but probably most recognized for her role as a female psycho in Fatal Attraction) was the frontrunner. Except that, supposedly, the studio wants Meryl Streep. I'm not sure I do. Glenn Close is an excellent singer and a truly amazing actress--possibly underrated, in spite of all her fame.

Don't believe me? Check this out:

Heh, they’ll probably do the standard old Hollywood thing, have Streep lip syncing to someone who actually can sing ^^

I don't think so, actually. She's supposedly doing the lead in a film version of Mama Mia, too. ^^;

Maybe she actually can sing, or they figure no one will care that she can’t ^^;

Well, it's amazing what you can do when it's all pre-recorded. ^^;

Did you watch the clip of Close? :P

Yeah, wouldn’t have guessed she could sing either ^_^;

Have you ever seen the remake of the The Stepford Wives movie?

No.. Didn’t know there was one ^^;

In the movie, she leads a kind of barn dance--to quite humorous effect. The director comments in his voiceover track that Close ad libbed all of it herself.

Was she a robot? ^_^

No, she was the one who INVENTED the robots. ^^;

So I guess she can sing? I'm...shocked.
