In a recent interview with E! Online, Tina Fey claims that she’d love to bring ‘Mean Girls’ to Broadway, and what’s more, she wants to drag Mariah Carey into the fold.
“Maybe! We want to. I would love to,” Tina Fey told E! News on the red carpet at the SAG Awards. “I’m trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount’s onboard.”
Grool! And Tina already has one musician in mind to take on one of the now-iconic parts: Mariah Carey.
“I loved it!” Tina gushed when asked about the recent American Idol fight between Mariah and fellow judge Nicki Minaj over Mean Girls. “And I think Mariah won. Like, Mariah seemed to really know all the characters.”
During the spat, Ms. Carey was adamant that she was no Regina George and Tina agrees: “Maybe she can play Amy Poehler’s part in the musical.”
Uh, yes please. We can totally see Mariah dolled up in a pink suede jump suit. She is a cool mom, after all. And perhaps Tommy Lee Jones can play her put-upon husband, what with the grumpy face he showcased at the Golden Globes.
“Every time we came out I felt like, not only was Tommy Lee Jones looking at me, but looking at me like he was so mad at me,” Fey recalled. “But I think that might just be his face.”
No word on if Lindsay wants to claim the Regina George role, because there’s no way in hell she could pull off the innocent, sweet part of Cady Heron in a reprisal. It just won’t happen.
