Idina Menzel has played some iconic characters over the years, but who would have guessed her next big role would be on Lifetime?

According to Deadline, the Frozen actress is set to star in a Lifetime remake of the 1988 film Beaches!

Taking the role of CC, played by Bette Midler in the original Garry Marshall classic, the 45-year-old will also take on the film's iconic songs Wind Beneath My Wings and The Glory of Love!

But that's not all — Menzel will also record additional songs for the contemporary remake, which is set for a 2017 premiere!

Beaches tells the story of two young girls, CC and Hillary, who share an unexpected and lifelong friendship.

Menzel's CC is an aspiring singer trying to make it in El Lay when she is discovered by a big time director.

The yet-to-be-cast Hillary, played by Barbara Hershey in the original version, is the daughter of a civil rights lawyer who searches to find her own destiny.

Not too many actresses can do justice to a character already played by Midler, but we think Idina is perfect for this role!

Are YOU excited for Lifetime's remake of Beaches?

The actress gushed about Hanks, who only appears in a quick scene as Ryan's deceased husband, saying:

"He's just so dear. He so did not have to do that. At the end of his time, he says to the crew, ‘All right, gather ‘round. Listen, I know we've gotten to know each other very well over the last 10 hours together, but I just want to thank you for being here for my friend Meg.'"

Most reasonable adults have no problem with the notion that actors can be very different from the characters they play — then again, we did say reasonable

Bradley Cooper showed up at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday with equally insanely good-looking girlfriend Irina Shayk.

Not too surprising, given his high-profile status as a Democrat; he donated money to Hillary Clinton's campaign back in 2008 and was the reason Zach Galifianakis was able to get President Barack Obama on his fake talk show Between Two Ferns.

But since playing Republican icon Chris Kyle in American Sniper, the talented actor has attracted a whole new group of fans that didn't take too kindly to his DNC appearance.

A few conservatives even announced they would be boycotting the star's films, writing:

Jared Leto covers the August issue of Rolling Stone!

With Suicide Squad about to hit theaters, it's no wonder Rolling Stone would want Jared Leto on their cover!

And while he easily could have taken the August issue as The Joker, the actor is quite simply him… well, in all his shirtless glory!

The 44-year-old has his INSANE six-pack on full display as he looks more shredded than ever, but it's inside the magazine that Jared really has our full attention.

Of course with his highly-anticipated performance as The Joker soon to be shown on big screens, he shared:

"The Joker is incredibly comfortable with acts of violence. I was watching real violence, consuming that. There's a lot you can learn from seeing it. Not every act of violence is committed with frenzy, either. I remember learning that. People can be calm. They've made their choice and go and do something, and it's not in a frenzy. It's methodical and sometimes even hypnotic and deliberate."

And Leto's also well aware of the footsteps he's following in. The cover star dished on Heath Ledger, the late actor who last filled The Joker's shoes:
