I posted a slightly (very slightly) cropped version of that picture of Jake a few weeks ago along with the rest of its corresponding photoshoot, but since a better copy with a hint more knee just showed up (via) I'll share that to go along with this story since we do love a good knee -- a new movie musical version of Little Shop of Horrors is being made! Greg Berlanti, the TV mastermind behind so very much of the gay-adjacent beefcake that we get on our small screens these days (The Flash and Arrow and now Archie's abs), is going to direct the thing, apparently - the last time he directed anything it starred Josh Duhamel in his underwear.
I posted a picture of Jake above because of course he did the musical on stage last year alongside its original supernova of a star Ellen Greene, which made me cry so so much when i saw it - but I have my doubts that Jake will do the movie, just as I doubt they'll cast Ellen Greene in the role that is entirely hers forever, and so similarly I have my doubts that Little Shop can be a success. I honestly cannot fathom anyone that is not Ellen Greene in the role of Audrey. Good luck, whoever tries! You'll need it!
