Willow Palin To Star in Annie!

Kidding. That was just another attempt for me to get the Palin name into print so the whole family can become even more overexposed and hopefully implode.

It's actually Willow Smith--the little daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith--who looks ready to play Little Orphan Annie in a screen musical that daddy's in talks to do (with Jay-Z working on the musical angle).

I love the colorblind casting involved here. After all, Nell Carter played the evil Miss Hannigan once on Broadway, so why not let the nice characters be black?

And with Will & Jada's other kid, Jaden Smith, scoring so big with The Karate Kid, it's no wonder they're pimping out another offspring to Hollwood.

Something about the whole thing seems mildly distasteful yet commercially viable and totally right, and if you don't like it, you can whip my hair.

I thought Diana Ross was lined up to be Annie.

Some celebrities don't seem to believe in childhood. ('Yes, I am rich as God, but get out there and earn your keep!)

Something tells me 'denimesasx' isn't a person. That's the kind of post Captcha keeps out of blogs.

Gee, maybe they can resurrect John Huston to direct the movie again! Some Broadway shows should never have been made into movies, and ANNIE definitely falls into that category.

I agree, quit pimping your kids.... and that includes the former governor from Alaska who quit her job half-way through her term because... well, gee, she couldn't stay the heat in the kitchen.

The story was reported by Disney for a 1999 film on television, but Hollywood superstar is now Smith says he is in talks to take Annie to the movies in a remake again.

I say this with love, and I mean it:

I have known an Aaron Spelling, and you, sir, are no Aaron Spelling. Quit pimping your kids.

At least Tori is a sport about it and a friend of the community. Sorry, Tori, for making the connection, but it had to be done.

At this point I'd rather it be Willow Palin. I'm about tired of the Smiths and their insatiable lust for stardom. I sometimes wonder if Will and Jada haven't taken a page from the "Skeleton Key" and are just grooming their next vessels.

no rich kid who grew up in hollywood ever amounts to anything-----they all become actors, like mom and or dad.

I know she can whip her hair back and forth but the song she allegedly sings while doing it doesn't show me she has Bway chops.

Then again, in the Jay-Z version, Annie is probably a rapper, a little girl rapper. Who would want their eight-year-old to be a ... wait, oh, never mind.

Scientology must be behind this.

Let her go for it. If she can handle it - fine. If not, better finding it out at 10 than after hitting adulthood and being even more let down. Let's see what she can do.
