I Wanna Be in a Broadway Musical Now! George Takei's Spider-Man Audition

Somewhere, Bono is crying.

Even though this isn’t a real audition, rather a sly advertisement for George Takei’s upcoming appearance in Allegiance, who among us wouldn’t love to see this ridiculous production? At this point, it would have a better chance of making money than the lavish mess that is Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Though he is, as George puts it, “a bit mature” (73!) for the role, I’ll be damned if he isn’t fairly spry and Godtopus knows his sense of humor is intact:

Come on Broadway, how about a production of Spider-Man: The Later Years? Peter and a bunch of his retirement home cohorts could break out and handle the over-60 criminal crowd. Or at least let him have a part in the next Indy installment…
