Though Jameson is not necessarily typical Broadway material, this piece of possible stunt casting isn’t completely unimaginable: It makes sense that a show that borrows from the likes of Poison would court someone who would fit in amongst the cast of Rock of Love. Heck, it’s not like Jameson is in negotiations for, say, Mary Poppins or Annie. And being a champion of Jameson’s — I’ve been fascinated by the astute, business-minded porn star ever since tuning into her E! True Hollywood Story — I’m hoping a trip to Broadway could give her the opportunity to jump into mainstream entertainment, the way 1997’s Private Parts didn’t. (Hey, if Sasha Grey can swing it, why can’t the most powerful woman in the adult entertainment industry?)
Then again, I’m not sure that someone as famous as Jameson could ever realistically make the leap from porn to top-notch MPAA-approved projects (nor am I even sure she would even want to see herself on billboards next to the Clooneys and Witherspoons of the industry) — which is why a semi-high-profile gig on Broadway is perfect for Jameson. Especially since, you know, her character owns a strip club.
Are you ready to buy your tickets, PopWatchers, if just out of curiosity?
