Though studio suits had been pushing for an A-lister to play the disgraced prez in Ron Howard's upcoming take on the stage drama Frost/Nixon, reports that Frank Langella, currently channeling the Watergate wonder on Broadway, may snag the gig - despite names such as Warren Beatty and Kevin Spacey being bandied about. Similarly, Michael Sheen (aka Kate Beckinsale's babydaddy), is in talks to reprise his role as David Frost. Having seen the production three days ago, I predict that Langella will win the Tony and perhaps an Oscar for his stunning work. Almost makes me forgive him for Cutthroat Island. Almost.

In other stage news, Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein has booked its out-of-town, pre-Broadway tryout, but as of yet has not announced a cast. The monster will run loose Aug. 4 through Sept. 1 at Seattle's Paramount Theater, says Variety, aiming to hit the Great White Way on (wait for it) Halloween. - Reporting by Raven Snook
