Is Sienna Miller in Vogue?
If you were one of the handful of people who caught Sienna Miller as doomed Warhol superstar Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl, you might recall that one of the supporting characters was legendary Vogue magazine editrix Diana Vreeland, played in the film by Illeana Douglas. The real-life Vreeland was a larger-than-life fashion maven who shaped and influenced the styles of generations of American women. Now comes word that Vreeland herself will be the subject of a new movie, and Miller is at the top of the wish list to play her. One of the producers behind Unzipped, the hilariously revealing documentary about Gay fashionista Isaac Mizrahi, hopes to bring Vreeland's memoir, D.V., to the screen. No word yet on when the film might go into production, but cross your fingers that it's as glamorous as its subject matter.

Buffy's Spike Carries a Torchwood
Lots of Gay fans tuned into Buffy the Vampire Slayer every week to see James Marsters as Spike, the lovesick and sardonic bloodsucker with major attitude and awesome hair. Now comes word that Marsters will be playing a decidedly pansexual character - Marsters describes him as a bit naughty and a bit psychopathic - on Torchwood, the BBC spin-off of Doctor Who created by Russell T. Davies (who also created the original Queer as Folk). Starring Gay actor John Barrowman, Torchwood is a queer-friendly science-fiction series featuring characters of seemingly every possible sexual stripe. (Plus, if you hadn't noticed, its title is an anagram of "Doctor Who.") Marsters' episodes will premiere in the U.K. in 2008 and should make their way to the States via cable and DVD soon thereafter.

Call Her Madam President
Lesbian actress Cherry Jones may be best known for her award-winning work on stage - she won Tonys for her lead roles in The Heiress and Doubt - and for her supporting roles on screen (Ocean's Twelve, The Village). But she's done stints on TV, too, and now she's headed back to the small screen in a big way: On the next season of 24, Jones will boss around Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) in her role as president of the United States. 24 aficionados will note that the Fox action series has made its fictional Oval Office more equal-opportunity than the real one, having already featured Dennis Haysbert as an African-American commander-in-chief. Jones' stint in the White House begins in January, when 24 returns for its seventh season. Word on whether or not the United States will have a nonfictional female president won't come until later that year.

Return to Valley of the Dolls?
With the patience of Penelope waiting for Odysseus, Romeo has been pining for the remake of the camp classic Valley of the Dolls, which Hollywood has been promising for the last 10 years or so. And while it may be too early to get excited, rumblings about that remake have begun to surface once again. The new go-round of rumors has Anne Hathaway being cast as chilly New England beauty Anne Welles, Lindsay Lohan as the talented but drug-addicted Neely O'Hara, and Sharon Stone as conniving, tough-talking, over-the-hill starlet Helen Lawson. (They're also talking about Jessica Simpson as unlucky sex symbol Jennifer North, but surely they can do better than that.) It's all in the gossip stage at this point, of course, but Romeo will keep a candle burning.

Romeo San Vicente is not nutty; he's just hooked on dolls. He can be reached care of this publication or at DeepInsideHollywood@qsyndicate.com.
