A Ryan Murphy, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Maya Rudolph Musical Might Be Happening

Where will Gwyneth show off her robot-dancing skills now that Ryan Murphy has banned guest stars from Glee? How about in a Ryan Murphy original movie musical? Said Murphy, at the Emmys: "We want to do a musical together — an original … for Gwyneth and Maya Rudolph, both of whom I'm great friends with." Vulture is historically pro-Gwyneth singing goofily in Ryan Murphy productions, but the original-song episodes of Glee don't necessarily bode well for the score. A humble suggestion: What if Murphy and Friends just joined forces with Tom Hooper's Les Mis? Gwyneth could ugly it up as Madame Thenardier and Maya Rudolph could do some serious singing as Fantine. Or Rudolph could be the lady Thenardier and Gwyneth could play her husband. Gwyneth as a disgusting, drunk Frenchman — we can all probably agree on that. [E!]
