John Travolta Is A Drag

Or rather, a drag queen: he is following in the pumps of Divine and Harvey Fierstein to play humongous housefrau Edna Turnblad in Hairspray. The film version of the musical based on the cult movie (still with me?), it will also star Queen Latifah as Motormouth Maybelle. We're always ready to hail the Queen, but Travolta in the femme fatsuit seems...well, wrong.

Travolta is capable of being a surprising actor, but all too often he settles for easy mediocrity. I'm going to need backup to figure this thing out: CALLING THE MOD FAB SIX! Sixers (and everyone), please post in the comments your thoughts on the Travolta casting. We need your input. Now. More than ever.
