Let me just get this right out of the way: I'm not a big fan of this whole Hairspray thing. Yeah, I saw the movie back in the day and listened to all the praise pouring out of the Broadway show, however it doesn't do it for me one bit. So, now you can understand me when I say that I am so not looking forward to another movie version. Oh, you didn't hear they were making another Hairspray? Or maybe you just forgot already?

Well, they are making another movie version and this one will star John Travolta, Billy Crystal and Queen Latifah. I don't think I've seen such an awkwardly put together cast since, well, ever. Now, reports are coming in that this already confusing cast may be adding another random actress to it in Michelle Pheiffer.

But Michelle may not be so random after all. You may remember a certain Michelle Pfeiffer leading the pack in a certain Grease 2? The same Grease 2 that had a Grease 1 come before it and star none other than a certain John Travolta? No word yet on who the actress will play, but if it all goes down, Hairspray redux could produce the ultimate reunion...that no one asked for. Or wanted.
