Broadway Actors To Become More Flaming

One of the best screenwriters of his generation is teaming up with one of the best songwriters of that same generation for an interesting collaborative effort. EW.com is reporting some strangely awesome news that surely marks the first and only time we’ll ever mention anything eligible for a Tony Award:

The Great White Way will never be the same: In an exclusive interview, Wayne Coyne, lead singer of the Flaming Lips, told EW.com that the psych-rock band will team up with acclaimed TV writer and show creator Aaron Sorkin to turn the group’s 2002 album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots into a Broadway musical.

Just a guess here, but based on prior track record, the part of Yoshimi will be brilliantly portrayed by either Bradley Whitford or Joshua Malina.

(Thanks to our main man Coach for the heads up on this one…)

  1. Wait… I’ve got it. Michael Douglas (who happens to be playing the President of the United States) is like dating an environmental lobbyist say… Annette Benning. And then at like some kind of state dinner he unexpectedly dances with her and starts singing, “Do You Realize.”

    But then some prick played by… I dunno… Richard Dreyfus starts attacking Annette Benning right? And so Michael Douglas gets back at him by singing “Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell” into a tv camera at a press conference.

    Or something like that. I haven’t thought about it that much.

    I’m actually making myself kind of hot right now.
