Things have been pretty quiet on the Gypsy front since March, when Julian Fellowes was announced as the screenwriter. Now a vague tidbit has worked its way out into the world: Babs is considering Lady Gaga for a role. In a very Joel Stein–y Joel Stein column, he writes that "I told [Streisand] what a mullet is, she told me she’s thinking of casting Lady Gaga as the lead in her remake of Gypsy." First things first: Barbra Streisand doesn't know what a mullet is? Interesting. Second things second, Lady Gaga as Louise (presumably)? That is ... bold.
