A new Fame theatrical trailer debuted today, and we had to wait less than 20 seconds for a jazz hands joke. YES! So many questions: Whose speeches will be more inspiring, Kelsey Grammer’s or Charles S. Dutton’s? How do we get that more-dramatic-than-a-Baz-Luhrmann-film stage lighting into our daily lives (or, at least, Annie’s office)? And which scene will make this replace Center Stage as our favorite dance film starring at least one performer gifted in every discipline but acting?I cannot wait for the answers. I haven’t been this excited to hear “Fame” since the end of The Hangover. I am, however, a little nervous because both my Center Stage and Step Up partners are now living on the opposite coast. You have to be very careful who you take with you to see a movie like this: There must be genuine enjoyment in the seats and dancing in line at the ladies’ room afterward. Do you have your Fame date already picked?
