Lady Gaga as Madonna in “Life With My Sister Madonna”?
Christopher Ciccone burned a lot of bridges with the release of “Life With My Sister Madonna”, his bestselling tell-all book about what it’s like to live under his famous sister’s shadow. Gossip-mongers across the globe are now chattering about the film version directed by Christopher himself, with rumors pointing to Lady Gaga as his first choice to play the part of Madonna when she was younger.
Lilly’s Talent Agency in Indianapolis confirmed submitting video auditions for the part of Madonna when she was a child and will soon tape auditions for the Ciccone clan, including Madonna’s dad and stepmom.
Other thespians on Christopher’s wish list include Tina Fey , who will take on the role of the older and more jaded Madonna, Adam Lambert as ex-husband #1 Sean Penn and T.R. Knight as British Director Guy Richie.
Allegedly, Wilson Cruz from “My So-Called Life” and “Noah’s Arc” has already signed on to play Carlos Leon, the father of Madonna’s daughter Lola.
The name-dropping doesn’t stop there. Rupert Everett, Boy George, Nathan Lane, and Sissy Spacek are on the roster of actors interested in the project, which is slotted to begin shooting in late Spring 2010.
If you’ve read “Life With My Sister Madonna”, you know very well that Madonna will do everything she can in her power to stop this production from happening.
Chances are, the rumors about who may join the cast, including Lady Gaga in the starring role, are simply figments of a Christopher’s overactive imagination — fueled by attention and expensive habits.
