Michael Ball as Edna#1
Posted: 8/22/07 at 4:56am
The first pics are out and Micheal Ball looks absolutly brilliant! I know it wont be long before people come on here and start knocking him from just 2 pics but give the guy a chance! Now i cant wait to see the London production after being put off a bit by Michael Balls casting but now seeing him as Edna- wow! If theres anything he just needs abit of fattening up! Mel looks great fun too.

Michael looks great, just right !!! Edna looked a little over padded in the film I thought.

I was listening to a short interview with Michael on bbc radio 4 he was asked had he seen Travolta play Edna in the film he said yes he had and it was interesting how John Travolta had made Edna small, timid and kind of understated then he laughed and said

"but I don't think I'm going down that route" lol!!!

You preaching to the converted there re: Michael Ball as Edna lol!!

I've seen Michael many times over the years but very sadly not in 'Aspects of Love' which is my favourite ALW show and up to now, my favourite of Michael's cast recordings.

I'll be at the RAH for Prom on Monday and then after that it will be countdown to Hairspray.
