Tina Fey sure knows how to please a
bunch of us jumpy clapping she-geeks crowd.
After co-owning the stage at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, the "30 Rock" star got to relax a bit and actually enjoy being a nominee (and eventual winner) for Best Actress in a Comedy Series at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday evening.
To be 100% clear, that'd be a musical. based. on. "Mean Girls."
Fey wrote the script for the 2004 film, her one and only movie screenplay credit to date, and said she's currently working on adapting the story for song and dance.
"Maybe! We want to. I would love to," Fey said of the prospect. "I'm trying to develop it with my husband [Jeff Richmond], who does all the music for '30 Rock' and I think Paramount's onboard."
No word yet on whether any of the original castmembers would reprise their delightfully bitchy roles for the stage version, but Amanda Seyfried did recently say that she feels her "best work" was in that film and she since got some experience stretching her pipes via "Les Miserables." After all her "The Canyons" shenanigans, though, we're thinking Lindsay Lohan would likely be a no-show.
Let's not get too excited though: Fey has been talking about a "Mean Girls" musical as early as 2007. She hadn't written it yet then, either, but still.
We may be a little short on hope that this will happen (ever, sob) but you betcha we'll be wearing our mid-week pink (and ditching all sweatsuits) just in case. And, yeah. Your hair looks really sexy pushed back, if you were wondering.
