Blink and You Missed It!

We here at Sexy Trash LOVE Broadway! Chances are, if you see a Broadway musical or play these days, you will most likely see a familiar face on stage. Sometimes you will recognize a star, and other times you will see someone whose star has burnt out. 

Listed here are some stars heading to the stage that you may not have known about:

Rupert Grint

Though he has one stage role under his belt in London, he is making his Broadway debut in October alongside Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally and Stockard Channing. He will be playing the role of Frank Finger in It's Only a Play.

Rupert s best known for his role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films. His Potter costars, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe, have seen moderate success at the box office compared to Grint. Though none of them will (probably) ever reach the film success they had with the Potter Films, we hope Rupert finds his niche on Broadway.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal seems to have gotten more press over the years for his high profile relationships with Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift and most recently Rachel McAdams, than his movie roles.

What used to appear to be a promising film career with remarkable roles in Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain and Jarhead seems to have wavered off and in its place he has chosen more traditional Hollywood-type roles.

His Broadway debut is this December in Nick Payne's Constellations. Kudos to him for leaving his comfort zone, something that made us fall in love with him in the first place.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Being the Solange of the Gyllenhaal family, she never quite reached the same popularity as her brother, but she has made a name for herself in her own right. Despite receiving many awards and nominations, she still doesn't seem to have the pull and recognition she has worked hard for the past 20+ years.

No stranger to the stage, she will star this October in The Real Thing alongside Ewan McGregor and Cynthia Nixon.

Keep working at it, Maggie... you'll get there eventually... maybe?

And across the pond, we have..
Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay... we really hope you cleaned up your act this time! We want nothing more than for you to make a comeback, and hopefully your premiere on West End in Speed the Plow sets you on the right path.

We know you have talent in you somewhere (maybe deep down... below all that spray tan and plastic surgery...) and we are just waiting for you to dominate on stage and make your way back to the big screen and into our hearts. That would be grool!

Well, that is all for this week. We wish them all the luck in the world, and hope the newcomers don't become laughingstocks of the theater circuit... though it would give us entertaining gossip. Until next time...
