VIDEO: Josh Groban Considering CATFISH: THE MUSICAL for Broadway?
Tracie Thoms, star of Broadway's 'Rent' appeared on last night's episode of MTV's CATFISH and gave a stunning performance. (see video below).
The series, from the producers of the acclaimed documentary film, "Catfish," brings together couples who've interacted solely through their LCD screens. Over the course of months or years - these romantics have become smitten - but don't know what will happen when they meet in real life for the first time?
In each episode, with the guidance and help of the star of the "Catfish" movie, Nev Schulman, and his filmmaking pal, Max Joseph, a hopeful romantic partner will go on an emotional journey to discover the truth about their significant other.
On last night's show, after Nev suggested that Josh Groban, who's known for epic songs such as "You Raise Me Up," could write a song about the show, Groban responded via Twitter with a much more exciting possibility. "I'm thinking a whole catfish musical!! Would be huge!!! Who plays "Nev"?" he posted.
What do you think of the idea?!!
