And in other crazy American Idol casting news…
Looks like we really just might be in for some BIG surprises for Idol’s 12th season!
We previously reported that some names — like Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus — were being thrown around to replace the show’s current cast…and now, we have yet ANOTHER to add to the list!
While Katy Perry has graciously declined the possibility of taking up a judge role, recent reports are saying that exec. producer Nigel Lythgoe wants none other than Charlie Sheen to fill one of the coveted seats!
Not only does Nigel supposedly want Charlie, but Jerry Lewis as well!
Producers are still hoping to snag Jennifer Lopez for another season, but Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler are still up in the air.
We can only assume that Nigel is joking about Charlie and Jerry…right???
Though, Charlie WOULD certainly give everyone something to talk about and we know how much the show looooves its precious ratings! Ha!
This is starting to sound like The X Factor! LOLz!
