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.

I love getting updates...and it sounds positive so that's great!

I absolutely love that they have the original team back. I'm excited to see what Waters, Shankman, Shaiman and Whitman come up with. Adam said they wouldn't do it if it wasn't perfect so I have confidence in them.
