Apparently ten lines in a sitcom can get you an invitation to London’s West End.
UK’s Hello! reports: “In what sounds like a perfect role for the girl from Louisiana, Britney is believed to have been offered the role of Southern belle Blanche DuBois in a new production of A Streetcar Named Desire. An unnamed source revealed that Britney’s acclaimed performance on the sitcom led to the chance for her to tread the boards. ‘She had poise, timing and real flair,’ they said. British hard men Ray Winstone and Jason Stratham (sic) are understood to be among the actors in line to play Blanche’s brother-in-law, Stanley Kowlaski (sic), originally played by acting legend Marlon Brando.”
And that sound you just heard was Tennessee Williams slamming his head against the inside of his coffin.
