A source says Britney Spears' ex, 30, may be heading to NYC in September to make his Broadway debut in Legally Blonde, the Tony-nominated musical adaptation of the hit film, Us Weekly reports in its latest issue, on newsstands now. "He's so excited!" a Federline source tells Us. The former backup dancer and aspiring hip-hop artist ... will test his song-and-dance chops in a trio of roles -- including the UPS guy who inspires the "bend and snap." "This is his chance to show the world what he can do," says a pal. And now that he has physical custody, sons Sean, 2, and Jayden, 18 months, might join him in the Big Apple. "This is his dream and he wants to bring the kids," says the insider. "Jamie and Lynne [Spears] promised to help him make it work." (A rep for the show says he is not scheduled "as of this time.")
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Legally Blonde is such a great show, I'd hate to see it get all mucked by by all of this Popozãoness. I'm sorry, I just cannot see K-Fed 1.) on Broadway in the first place or 2.) in the role of the sexy UPS guy who gets to thrill the audience with those cute little brown shorts. Blech ... now that's an image that I'll have to try and eradicate from my brain. I understand that the lead actors in the show right now (Laura Bell Bundy, Orfeh, etc.) will be leaving the show this summer, so I know that producers are lookin' to recast (in fact, MTV is planning to air a reality show competition that will find the next Elle Woods for the Broadway show) ... I just hope this K-Fed thing doesn't work out. I just don't think he's right for any part in this show. Gawd ... the thought of this actually happening is extremely disturbing ... I think I'd prefer he put out another rap album instead. Like, seriously. [Source]
UPDATE: Extra is now reporting that Kevin Federline is NOT joining the cast of Legally Blonde on Broadway ... US Weekly claims the deal fell apart over money:
According to Kevin Federline's rep, the reports that Britney Spears' ex is joining the cast of Broadway's Legally Blonde are "not true."
"It fell apart. He is really upset because he wanted it to happen." The source adds that it was a "money issue." Federline, says the source, "still wants to do it and maybe it can be saved, but for now it’s not happening."
Halle-freakin'-lujah!!! Oh and I was just kidding about it being okay for him to make another rap album :)
