  1. This is hands-down the scariest thing I'll see all day. I'm glad I didn't eat breakfast and I might just skip lunch.

  2. I'm not sleeping tonight... or ever again.

    That photo is a nightmare waiting to happen.

  3. He looks like "That Girl" on steroids.

  4. I wish you would not give Revolta any free press. He is going to ruin this project.

  5. Bingo! Think we found a bigger mess than George Michael.

    ...and Boy George.

    Maybe I shouldn't pre-judge. He might be good in this movie.

    Right?

  6. I confess that I've never seen Hairspray. I'll also confess that Mr. Travolta appears to be having a blast. I actually like the look.

    Patrick,

    As a Hairspray fan, I'm trying hard to keep an open mind about Travolta as Edna, but ultimately I think you're right!

  8. I just puked in my mouth a little. He is revolting! Nobody can replace Devine as Edna.

  9. While it's certainly true that nobody can replace Divine, Harvey did a great job on Broadway. Like others, I'm thinking Travolta, not so much. But I'll try to keep an open mind.

  10. I have to disagree - I think this looks hysterical.
    And remember, he is actually a talented singer.
    I've said it before, Best Supporting nomination coming his way...besides, these days if you fart in a musical you generate Oscar buzz (Dreamgirls for eg.)

  11. Hmmm, I don't know about him either. I am trying to keep an open mind however I liked Bruce Vilanch as Edna Turnblad (and I'm not even a fan of musicals). Time will tell...

  12. Loved the John Waters movie. The Broadway musical (saw it with Harvey as Edna) not so much. Most of the "attitude" was gone/watered down for Broadway. I have a feeling this movie version will be even more watered down than the stage version. And John does look scary!

  13. Looks like an overweight Barbara Streisand --- separated at birth??
