Grease is the word Taylor Swift could be hearing soon enough – at least if a few reliable sources get their way.
The country megastar is the top choice among entertainment news outlets to take the spotlight in the upcoming live broadcast of Grease.
FOX has announced plans to air Grease Live in 2015, and both E! Online and Perez Hilton are speculating the leading role of “Sandy Olsson” should go to Taylor.
Olivia Newton-John took on the role of “Sandy” in the popular 1978 film version of the story, which was based on an original 1971 musical.
But who could star as Taylor’s “Danny Zuko” (originally played by John Travolta)?
Some names being tossed around right now include Nick Jonas, Zac Efron and even rapper Drake.
It’s too early to tell who FOX will cast in the live production, which follows the 2013 live broadcast of The Sound of Music Live on NBC.
Of course, Carrie Underwood took the starring role in that one.
No word on an exact date Grease Live will hit your television screens in 2015.
