She's even talked to him about it!

Hugh Jackman!

That's a long stretch from the kvetchy Jack Klugman in the original show and pinched-faced Karl Malden in the movie.

And as our friends at lemonwade.com point out, it would make the character of Rose a big-time cougar (not just a barracuda).

Weird casting.

By the way, in unrelated news, I just turned on the Weather Channel and hell has frozen over.

Can't blame Babs for wanting to get her hands on him.  I'd sure like to.

Another remake?! Stop please! Hollywood is running out of ideas? Someone give to Hugh Jackman new roles worthy of his many talents...

 Whoever plays Herbie, I hope they restore his one solo, "Nice She Ain't," which Jack Klugman couldn't sing. After struggling with it, he told Styne & Sondheim to "shove it up your ass," much to La Merm's delight.

First Roz Russell does the movie instead of Ethel, now this. It's just bad casting.

The REAL question: Who's going to play Tulsa?

Can Jason dance?

Barbra, come on... Tom Hanks was a wiser choice, and he was only a rumor. Hugh Jackman, come the f**k on, who are you trying to kid? Just because we don't need lady's stockings and soft filters anymore to create a younger Barbra, doesn't mean we're fooled.

This is so wrong in so many ways.

What about lady's stockings?  That sounds intriguing!  Would he strangle her?
