Superman Harry to Mollyís Sally???
Date: 5 May 2004
Though official sources cannot confirm it, The Stage reports that 1980s Brat Packer Molly Ringwald (star of The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles will replace Buffyís Alyson Hannigan in the West End production of When Harry Met Sally. When the stage adaptation of the 1989 romantic film comedy opened in February, it was generally panned by critics, but itís proved a hit with, particularly younger, audiences. Itís now extended booking at the Theatre Royal Haymarket up to September, but Hannigan and her Beverly Hills 90210 co-star Luke Perry finish their contracts at the end of this month. Amongst those Hollywood bods rumoured to replace Perry is Dean Cain, who played Superman/Clark Kent in TVís The New Adventures of Superman. Official word on the new cast is expected very soon indeed.
