Jessica Alba Does a Madonna on Mamet

According to the New York Post’s Michael Riedel, Jessica Alba may star in a Broadway revival of David Mamet’s 1988 satire of Hollywood “Speed-the-Plow” in the spring. Has she seen Claire Danes reviews? Yikes. But that didn’t stop Madonna, as Mr. Riedel points out.

Madonna got some fairly harsh reviews in the role of the secretary who’s so naive she has no idea how to make coffee. But it didn’t hurt her career any – off the boards, at least.

No word yet on who will play the two male leads, but there’s talk that “The Sopranos” stars James Gandolfini and Michael Imperioli are on the producers’ wish list, with Gandolfini playing the brutal studio boss and Imperioli playing the desperate producer.
