Which, I guess would make sense, because smoking up the beach in anything other than a bathing suit – aside from maybe nudity – would just be absurd, now, wouldn’t it? I think it might be, but then again, I’ve been wrong about such things in the past.
Lea Michele and a friend were photographed taking it easy on the beach and looking pretty awesome doing it.
And? Here’s some news for all (three) of you theater buffs out there – Lea Michele has not been approached (yet) for a role in the upcoming film adaption of Spring Awakening, a play based on German teenagers and budding sexuality in the 19th century, and is The Play that practically spurned Lea Michele’s career:
Despite widespread reports that hit the Web over the past 24 hours, Glee star Lea Michele is not currently engaged in talks to reprise the role she originated in the Broadway production of Spring Awakening in an upcoming film adaptation, a rep for the actress confirmed.
However, in a statement released exclusively to EW, Michele said, “Spring Awakening is so special to me, as is the character Wendla. We have discussed this as a possibility, and we’ll see what happens.”
The story originated yesterday when the film’s director McG (Terminator Salvation, This Means War) told E! Online, “We’re talking to Lea Michele because she made the role of Wendla famous and we’ll see if that pans out and works with the timing of her schedule on [Glee].” As it turns out, those talks happened long ago, and the project has been relatively quiet since — but now that there’s so much buzz and interest on both sides, it may soon find itself picking up steam. “There were initial talks about this project,” said Michele’s rep. “However, there is nothing confirmed at this time.”
In the film, Michele would reprise the role of Wendla, a part she created in the early workshops and original off-Broadway production of Spring Awakening before it transferred to Broadway in 2006. (She even turned down an offer to play Eponine in the Broadway revival of Les Miserables that same year, opting to stay loyal to Spring Awakening instead.)
If you’re a Michele fan and you know her history, Lea is Wendia – it’d only make sense to really throw her into the mix. Plus, with that body? She’d be making a killing, no lies. Just don’t cast Ashton Kutcher, producers. It’d be a heartbreaking disaster waiting to happen.
