Nikki comments on Hairspray 2

Not surprising there is still nothing confirmed for Zac. But interesting that it sounds like Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman are already at work. I love them so that is exciting :D

ETA: I don't think I ever posted these, but I've been meaning to and since they are Hairspray related, I thought I'd add them on here. These quotes are from recent interviews with John Waters who has been doing press for his one-man show in Australia.

From The Star Observer:

So did Waters meet teen heart-throb Efron on the set of the musical remake of Hairspray?

“I certainly did and he was lovely. I don’t think he’s a twink — I’m from a generation and I like the word ‘chicken’ better,” Waters said.

“He heard me say this joke that what they should do if they want to catch child molesters is just sit him on a park bench and then see who comes out of the woodwork and then move him to the next city.

“I always tell him he should play a junkie and win the Oscar. So should Dolly Parton — get out of drag, play a junkie and you’ll win the Oscar.”

From The Herald Sun:

Zac Efron was in Hairspray. What is he like?

He's great. He has a good sense of humour. I kept telling him he should play a junkie and he'd win an Oscar.
