"WE'LL CLAW OUR WAY TO THE TOP!" - John Travolta as Edna Turnblad in the new movie version of Hairspray? I'm more than skeptical, but I do think Queen Latifah is a fine choice for Motormouth Mabel . . .
Of course, the real question re: this version of the Broadway adaptation remains, "Will they use an actual fat actress (as Ricki Lake was and Marissa Janet Winokur still is) in the lead role?" Or, to put it another way, is it possible to do the Madison in a fat suit?
