Oscar-Winning Classic The Sting Is Coming To Broadway! Wait, Really?!? Here Are 11 Other Movies That In No Way Need A Musical Adaptation!

the sting

Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE us some musicals!

But there are some movies that just aren’t meant to be on Broadway!

It was just announced that the latest flick to find a place on The Great White Way is The Sting and we’re sort of scratching our heads as to why oh why they would adapt this Oscar-winning classic into a musical?!

The 1973 film starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman tells the story of two con artists who set out to scam a mob boss in Depression-era Chicago.

We’ve definitely got our doubts that the Best Picture winner The Sting will sing its way to musical glory, although anything is possible!

Here are 11 other movies we hope NEVER make their way onto a New York City stage…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Well this was surprisingly candid!

Who knew January Jones had such strong feelings for these two talented people! And when we say people, we mean a man AND a woman!

January bared it all for Violet Grey magazine, she clearly left little to the imagination in her spread, both photographically and in her revealing interview!

But the answer to this specific question certainly had everyone buzzing. When asked if she could bed anyone, dead or alive, the Mad Men actress revealed she would willingly hop in with:

eileen brennan passes away 80 bladder cancer burbank

This is so sad!!!

Hollywood icon Eileen Brennan has died!

According to her publicist, the 80-year-old actress succumbed to bladder cancer Sunday in her Burbank home!

Eileen was nominated for an Oscar for her work alongside Goldie Hawn in 1980's Private Benjamin, but her most memorable roles might've been with Paul Newman in The Sting or as the sweet-natured waitress in The Last Picture Show.

She is survived by her sons Sam and Patrick, her daughter-in-law Jessica, and her grandchildren Liam and Maggie.

Our thoughts go out to Eileen's friends and family — we will all miss her terribly.

Taste Tests Reveal Celebrity-Branded Food Tastes Mostly Average

Filed under: Food

Wolfgang puck and Emeril

The taste tests are in and celebrity-branded food…is just okay.

At least, that's what a new Consumer Reports taste test of 26 celebrity-branded food products says, majority of which tested comparably to much cheaper products from major companies like Kraft.

With the price increase and famous face, we expect the best, but celebrity-endorsed pasta sauce the likes of Emeril Lagasse or Paul Newman rated average on a scale from "Poor" to "Excellent".

Wolfgang Puck's minestrone soup tested as "good" (still behind "very good"), but to the chef's credit, his Tomato Basil Soup got an "excellent" rating and was called, "A soup to sip and savor."

Next time you're at Target and looking for tomato sauce, Giada De Laurentiis' tomato basil sauce is apparently an "excellent" choice and praised for its "buttery richness."

Sean Penn Intends To Stay In Haiti!

Filed under: InspirationSean PennOlivia Wilde

We cannot commend him enough for his tireless commitment to aiding so many people in need!

Ever since last year's devastating earthquake in Haiti, celebrities such as director Paul Haggis, Maria Bello, Olivia Wilde, and countless others have completely immersed themselves firsthand in the struggle to rebuild the broken country.

Sean Penn, however, seems to have gone above and beyond, and a year later, admits that he has no plans to leave the country.

In fact, when he's not working, he will live in Haiti permanently - as the camp manager for 55,000 displaced residents!

He explains:

“There’s a great thing Paul Newman said about his long marriage. ‘As it turns out, we still love each other.’ That’s how I feel: ‘As it turns out, I’m still here.’ The amount we’re getting done, versus what they’re doing — which is nothing. Quite honestly, if you want something done, do it yourself. They said, ‘You can stay if you’re effective. If you stop being effective, we kick you out.’ I started paying for stuff, and that was when I thought, ‘OK, I better figure this out, because at this burn rate I’ll last about a week and a half.’ I didn’t have commitments, except for way in the future; I had nothing pressing. I got practical issues, like everybody. I had two federal cases against me at the time, and one criminal one. I had just got taken for one half of everything I had in the divorce, so it’s not like I don’t have to work. A much more profound change in life for me personally was not being able to raise my son in a whole family through high school. When I first came to Haiti, the decision was to go for two weeks. Let’s face it, I’m a person that feels pretty alienated from the rest of the world and never felt understood by anyone. There’s no end point. This is where I’ll be when I’m not working, for the rest of my life.

Wow.

Say what you want about him, but we're completely blown away by his compassion and resilience!

It's one thing to cut a check - which is a wonderful gesture - but to immerse yourself in such hardship, and give up your life to help those in dire need?! Heroic!

Keep up the good work, bb! You have truly gone above and beyond in your efforts, and we know that there are thousands of lives grateful for what you've done!

Thoughts??
