Lea Michele Starring in Female Version of The Hangover — With Skylar Astin?
Is Lea Michele (Rachel) about to get her very own wolf pack? The Glee star hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2011’s New Year’s Eve, so we’re elated that she’s rumored to be joining the cast of a new comedy.
Broadway World is reporting that Lea may be starring in an upcoming film called Flock of Dudes. It’s worth noting that this news has not been confirmed, it’s just a report based off of a casting notice. But the notice describes Lea’s potential new flick as a "a female Hangover." We’re not really sure what that means, but considering that the all-kinds-of-awesome Bridesmaids was described in a similar way, we’re hoping this is a good omen.
Making us even more excited more this project — as if a movie needed anything besides Lea to make us excited — is the fact that Lea’sSpring Awakening co-star Skylar Astin is also attached to the film. Hooray! Might the two be playing a romantic couple? If so, our squeals would be deafening.
Skylar has been on fire lately, between appearing in the sleeper hit Pitch Perfect — opposite Anna Camp, whom he’s now dating in real life! — and starring in 21 and Over, which should have been more popular than it was, if only because you get to see his butt in it. (How a movie featuring Skylar’s butt doesn’t make a billion dollars is one of the universe’s great unanswered questions.)
That said, we’re still a bit skeptical of Flock of Dudes, since there’s so little available information about it. All we really know is that it co-stars Ray Liotta and Hilary Duff, two people who have been in projects that we love (we miss you, Lizzie McGuire!) but who haven’t really been lighting up the box office of late.
Still, if you think we’re gonna stay away from a movie with both Lea and Skylar in it, you are grossly mistaken. Seriously — we physically will be unable to stay away.
