TV is no longer the ugly step-child of movies. I read an article recently that mentioned that up and coming writer-directors are more interested in working on TV than in films these days. With outlets such as HBO, AMC, Showtime and regular networks too, it has never been a better time to be on television. Jessica Lange has found a successful 2nd act with her stint on “American Horror Story.” And this past season brought us Matthew McConaunghey and Woody Harrelson on “True Detective” on HBO. So what movie stars would I love to see on the small screen?
Star of The Fabulous Baker Boys and Hairspray. She would be perfect for a family matron on a night-time soap.
Star of Moulin Rouge and The Hours. With hubby Keith Urban on TV with Idol, I could see Nicole leading up a lawyer or detective show herself.
Star of Chicago and Traffic. I totally could see her doing some sort of variety show.. she can sing, dance, act. Something like the old Tracey Ullman show.
Star of American Beauty and The Kids Are All Right. I would pick something offbeat for her… someone with mental illness or disability.
Star of Legally Blonde and Walk the Line. Comedy is her forte, so something about being a faded beauty queen trying to get her life back together.
Star of Indecent Proposal and Ghost. I know this is a bit of a wild card pick… but when you look back at her career, she can act. Before she was better known for who her husband was. I would totally have her call Ryan Murphy for the next American Horror Story.
Stay tuned for Part 2 about the men I would like to see on the small screen next week. Let me know your thoughts.
