Former boy band member Lance Bass is taking up an interesting new venture. The New York Times reports that the 'N Sync singer is producing a play… about prostitutes.
And it gets better: Kirstie Alley is in negotiations to star in the production as a pimp. (And fellow ‘90s star Jamie Kennedy is also attached as a producer.)
“The Fabulous Lives of Hollywood Whores” centers on a high-end escort service run out of an upscale L.A. department store.
The casting breakdown on Playbill describes the production: "the show is dirty, the show moves fast, but there is a deep and intoxicating heart that pulses throughout."
In addition to the possible casting of Alley as a diva madame (which would be the Emmy-winner’s Broadway debut), other roles in the show include "the whore," the pimp's assistant, "the superstar," "the d-lister," a paparazzo, a nasty British lady, and a character actress who can do a range of dialects.
“Hollywood Whores” is reportedly aiming to open on Broadway in spring 2012.
