Probably the most iconic female star ever is going to be played on stage by the 'talent' that is Kerry Katona

This is going to be the best car crash musical production ever.

OK, I've checked the date and it's not April 1st.

So, Monroe with a Warrington accent. What could possibly go wrong?

Monroe with a slurry Warrington accent.

The article does say 'The script isn't an ordinary Bio - Drama and Belvedere has taken a new route into the personal history of Marilyn based on little known facts from her life.'

Transcribed as 'It will be nothing like her'.

This must be a scam like Springtime For Hitler in the film The Producers

Methinks more "Bombed" than "Bombshell" and certainly not a "Smash"!

"Writer Pashun, who recently cast Lizzie Cundy in the lead role of WAG! The Musical, said: 'I needed an actor of huge talent, personality and experience - Kerry was at the top of my list."

I'm liking the sound of this Belvedere Pashun bloke. Sounds like he has a very highly developed sense of humour.

I remember when Michael Jackson announced his 'This Is It' concerts, I said to my wife 'Those gigs will never happen in a million years'. I wasn't expecting quite the circumstances, but was utterly sure the concerts were not going to take place.

As soon as I read this article, the same conviction came over me. Katona will never play Marilyn on a public stage.I cannot think of anyone less suited to the role or the work involved. And as for having her debut in front of industry insiders? It would be kinder to throw her to wolves. Actual wolves.

Is she serious? She's nothing like Marilyn in personality, or looks. This musical will likely turn out to be a joke! Why the hell did they choose Kerry for? Do the makers of this musical want to be laughed at?

Is he in it aswell?
Judging by the dubious casting choices, he'll be played by that fine, critically-acclaimed actor, Danny Dyer.

Of course, the irony being that Marilyn Monroe IS her generations Kerry Katona. She couldn't act, she couldn't sing, she slept with married men and BARELY hid the fact in the public eye. She obtained fame based entirely on her sex appeal, and she died troubled.

Kerry obviously isnt dead, but she has dabbled in drugs, and she is also talentless.

Although it always makes me chuckle when people think Mrs Monroe is somehow the stable of class, when she was her day and ages Katie Price. She is venerated for the very thing we mock people for now (only famous because she is pretty, in the most boring of ways)

Maybe so but Monroe had genuine glamour and sex appeal. Katona has none of those things.

Monroe at least had sex appeal and an iconic beauty. Katona has neither IMHO.

She didn't walk like a hod carrier and have a voice like nails down a blackboard.

Marilyn most certainly COULD act, as she proved in Bus Stop, and The Prince and The Showgirl, on which she acted Olivier right off the screen. Even the revered Dame Sybil Thorndike observed, "That girl knows more about screen acting than the rest of us put together." She was also a terrific comedienne, and very funny in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire. She had real star quality, and to compare her to those two dogs, Katona and Price is an insult to her memory. The fact that she is even more famous more than 50 years after her death than when she was a star, proves that she was something very special.

Well said, Walter. Only a fool could equate Monroe with the vulgar talentless likes of Katona and Price.
