Katie Holmes has reportedly been offered a starring role in the Broadway revival of William Mastrosimone's controversial drama Extremities!
The play, which is expected to run during the 2011-2012 season with Kenny Leon attached as a director, focuses on a woman who turns the tables on her rapist and with the help of her roommates, struggles to decide what to do with him.
Chloe Sevigny has also reportedly been offered a role, most likely as one of the roommates!
Perhaps Katie thinks that this will do for her career what it did for Farrah Fawcett's back in the '80s, and establish her as a serious actress - and maybe it could!
We'd LOVE to see her succeed in a part like this! We definitely think there's potential there!
What do U think?? Should Katie Holmes take a role in Extremities??
Now that the holiday season is almost upon us (still too soon!) the Barbie catalog has updated, and now if one so desires, they can purchase a brand new Farrah Fawcett doll (above) posed to mimic the actress' arguably most iconic photo!
We can't get over how realistic that image looks! In fact, if you look at too quickly, it looks like the actual photo!
Still, a lovely little tribute to her life!
According to the product's website, however, the prototype is only available this season, and it's running for $1,500!
Holy shiz! How quickly we forget that glamour does not run cheap!
What do U think?? Is a Farrah Barbie on your gift list this year??
Lindsay LohanRedmond O'Neal has finally completed his rehab program.
The son of the late actress Farrah Fawcett was in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday to mark the end of his treatment program. After five months, Redmond looked ready to start over again and even hugged the Superior Court Judge upon receiving the official word that he was a free man.
It hasn't been an easy time for Redmond over the past year, but we think he's finally gone the distance.(Or at least we really hope so!)
After leaving the courthouse, Redmond released a statement through his lawyer, saying:
"My plan is to move forward with my life, clean and sober. I am going to do so privately and with as much quiet dignity as I can."
Good for you, boy! We think your mom is very proud of you, wherever she is now.
The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which Farrah had founded during her struggle with cancer, helps fund alternative cancer research and treatment methods and aims to improve the quality of life of those who are currently struggling with the disease.
Her best friend Alana Stewart said:
"If I can help carry on Farrah's mission for the foundation, it's an honor for me. I feel almost like she's a guardian angel watching over me, and I feel like she's smiling down on us and very happy that she died for a cause. She felt that she could help a lot of people and she could give a lot of people inspiration, courage and hope. That's why she did the documentary and that's why she started the foundation."
Farrah's son Redmond, who got a day pass from the sober living facility where he's undergoing court-ordered drug rehab to visit his mother's grave on the anniversary, was said to be extremely emotional. Father Ryan O'Neal said, "He lost her, and he's fragile."
We hope Farrah's family can find peace in helping others who are fighting cancer.
“I was talking to a medium. I was hoping my dad [Aaron Spelling] would come through. Farrah Fawcett came through in my reading loud and clear. It was really awkward for him as well. He’s like, ‘I have never had this happen.’"
Well Farrah was on Aaron's show Charlie's Angels! Tori continues:
“She wanted me to give a message to her family about how she was doing and what was going on and I’m like, ‘Great! She really picked the wrong person…I actually wrote a letter to Ryan O’Neal and gave it to him so I was like, he’s either going to think I’m completely crazy or he’s going to say, ‘Wow! Some of this makes sense,’ because she gave very specific details of things to tell them.
"I did and I included that in the note to Ryan saying, ‘Please pass this on to Redmond… She really wanted him to know these things.' I haven’t heard from Ryan so I don’t know, you know, I’m hoping you know he understood what I was trying to say and doesn’t think I’m some loony."
