Hollywood Roundup: Romy and Michele 2? And Lady Gaga Scores a Role in Sin City 2

by Calmin Valentino

Lady Gaga lands Sin City 2 role

It seems Robert Rodriguez has taken a liking to Gaga; when it it comes to film Gaga seems to be all in with Robert as his newest offering Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has Lady Gaga playing a sexy sinful waitress.

A follow-up of the 2005 hit Sin City, the eagerly anticipated sequel stars big names in the industry such as Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson, and now you can add Lady Gaga to the star-studded cast in what is gearing up to be her most important movie role yet.

Gaga's legion of fans may be hoping for a healthy dose of screen time for the singer, but Gaga aired some more info on this exciting news on twitter: "It's not a big part but I'm always happy to do it! When I take a music break I'll have more time. I'm just warming up, I gotta wet my feet first. Plus I perform best when I have time to focus."

The star has been criticised for her acting ability in previous roles, but we have a feeling this movie is just up Lady Gaga's sinful alley. Get ready to witness Gaga on the big screen as we hope this is the beginning of many roles for her.

Lisa Kudrow & Mira Sorvino campaign for Romy and Michele sequel

Seventeen years ago popular Friends star Lisa Kudrow and good friend Mira Sorvino left us in stitches with their massive hit movie Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.

Sorvino has recently stated that she and Lisa wants to do a sequel to the popular cult favourite, a decision that's backed up by both the movie's creator and writer.

While at Comic-Con last week to promote her new drama series Intruders, Sorvino was bombarded by Romy and Michele fans asking for a sequel to the big screen phenomenon.

Everybody seems to be in tremendous favour of the sequel, except for the studio that has the last say. Disney, it seems, may not be as keen as Kudrow and Sorvino to do a follow up to the 1997 smash hit movie, but if I could venture an educated guess I think the star duo Kudrow and Sorvino are busy with an unofficial campaign themselves. Well, we certainly won't mind indulging in some comical genius, provided the sequel lives up to the original. It seems that it will only be a matter of time before we hear an official announcement, but until then here's hoping Kudrow and Sorvino's "campaign" reaps success.
