Broadway's Blithe Spirit Summons Everett
He's skillfully managed the words of Oscar Wilde in several films, and now out actor Rupert Everett will take on that other great Gay Brit wit, Noel Coward. Everett has been cast in the lead role of the Broadway revival of Coward's classic comedy Blithe Spirit. In this hilarious look at love, death, and worlds unseen, Everett will star as Charles Condomine, a skeptical writer who hosts a séance at his home. Much to his surprise, the ceremony conjures up the ghost of his late wife, Elvira (Christine Ebersole, seen recently onstage in Grey Gardens), who has returned to get her revenge on Charles and to perpetrate a little mischief on the new woman in his life. Blithe Spirit will haunt the Great White Way in March 2009.

Kudrow Reunites with Roos and Bucatinsky for Therapy
Former Friends star Lisa Kudrow keeps her own friends close. She owns a company, Is or Isn't Productions, with Gay actor Dan Bucatinsky (who executive-produced Kudrow's cult HBO series The Comeback), and she's starred in two films (The Opposite of Sex, Happy Endings) directed by Bucatinsky's partner, Don Roos. Now the three of them are collaborating again on Web Therapy, a new series of comedic online shorts sponsored by upscale automaker Lexus. Kudrow stars as therapist Fiona Wallace, who conducts useless, three-minute web-chat sessions for her hapless clients (played by Bucatinsky, Jane Lynch, Bob Balaban, and The Office's Rashida Jones, to name just a few). Roos directs the short, snappy, and hilarious episodes. Curl up on Kudrow's couch at www.lstudio.com.

Absolutely Fabulous, American Style? Again?
The cavalcade of British shows being remade for American television shows no sign of slowing. Romeo recently reported on Sean Hayes producing a new version of the U.K. sketch show Man Stroke Woman, but now comes news that Fox is going for all the marbles and attempting to do a U.S. remake of Absolutely Fabulous. Really, sweetie darling? Didn't Roseanne and Carrie Fisher already try this back in the '90s, only to beat their heads against the wall? Didn't High Society and Cybill- and to a lesser extent, the brilliant Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman - already tread similar ground? Romeo is a little dubious, but he remembers thinking the American version of The Office wouldn't amount to much, either. Watch this space for details and possible crow-eating.

Darryl Stephens Arcs His Way to New Orleans
Noah's Arc star Darryl Stephens - who recently came out in the Gay media - is keeping busy following the demise of the popular Logo show. He and his co-stars will be in theaters this fall with the Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom feature, and he's got another big-screen outing lined up as well. Stephens has joined the cast of Bolden!, which is being called a "mythical" account of the life of ragtime legend Buddy Bolden, the "Cornet King" considered by many to be one of the fathers of what would become jazz. The film will star Anthony Mackie (Brother to Brother) as Bolden, and the cast also features Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Irby (The Unit), and Michael Rooker. Join the band when Bolden! hits theaters in 2010.

Romeo San Vicente was once called a "band Queer," due to his proficiency with the French horn, but he's grateful for the tongue-and-lip skills he developed. He can be reached care of this publication or at DeepInsideHollywood@qsyndicate.com.
