Fosse! Fosse! Fosse! Sam Rockwell And Michelle Williams Are Set To Star In A FX Limited Series With Lin-Manuel Miranda Producing
Jazz hands up, toes down! Sam “I always feel like somebody’s watching me” Rockwell and the other Michelle Williams are set to star in an FX limited series about dance legends Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. Geeks like me rejoice! Only, can these two even dance? Variety reports that Lin-Manuel Miranda will be an executive producer and the first episode will be directed by LMM frequent collaborator Thomas Kail (also producing) who’s directed productions of “Hamilton” for the stage, as well as Grease Live! on Fox. The show, which is going by the title Fosse/Verdon for now, will be based on the book Fosse which I read because I can’t touch a hat without sliding my fingers across the brim back and forth. Yes, even ball caps.
When he’s not acerbically dressing down hubristic scientists or shuffling around poolside at a historic Palm Springs mid-century modern wearing loafers with no socks, Jeff Goldblum enjoys spending time tickling the ivories at various nightclubs around L.A. and New York. And he’s being rewarded handsomely for it! According to Variety, Jeff’s just been offered a deal at Decca Records Label Group to record a jazz album.
