'The King's Speech' to hit the stage in 2012

Plans are underway to bring "The King's Speech" to Broadway.

Producer Michael Alden said the current goal is to launch the stage rendering in U.K. regional theater in the winter of 2012, then move to London's West End and before opening on Broadway in the fall.

None of the actors from the film are slated to reprise their roles in the play, which calls for nine cast members, Alden said.

Now every chick can wear 'Steve Buscemeyes'

"Chicks with Steve Buscemeyes," the blog that features pictures of beautiful women with actor Steve Buscemi's blue eyes photoshopped over their own, has achieved full-blown meme-hood. Now, Buscemi devotees can take things one step further.

"Sopranos" supporters and "Fargo" fanatics can proudly sport their very own Steve Buscemi dresses.

An Australian clothing company called BlackMilk is rolling out tight-fitting tank dresses with scoop necks that are silk-screened with giant images of Buscemi from the chest up. He wears a furtive, closed-mouth smirk. The same image is repeated on the back of the dress.

Also available on the same style dress is a screen shot from "The Shining’s" famous “Here’s Johnny” scene.
