I guess today is a day for asking, "Huh, can he sing?" because after learning Adam Driver is making a musical later this year we've gotten word that next up is male model turned movie pervert Jamie Dornan is going to star in a movie version of Georges Bizet's famed 1875 opera Carmen. (Thx Mac) Okay! If you say so! Even more the film will be directed by first time movie director Benjamin Millipied, celebrated sexy ballet dancer turned Mr. Natalie Portman.
Now I've never seen Carmen -- full disclosure: I have never seen an opera, period -- so I don't know much about the story. But what I do know is Jamie's role of "Aidan" per the announcement isn't a character listed on the opera's Wikipedia page. I suppose they could've changed the male lead's name for this -- is the male lead the "Escamillo" character? Anyway "Carmen" herself will be Melissa Barrera, who's playing the lead in Lin-Manuel Miranda's In the Heights movie, so she can probably definitely sing. Which seems important. For an opera. Call me nuts.
