Matador pirate Jerry Springer joins 'Chicago' in London

Posted on

Pssssst. Britain. What’s up. You just agreed to let Jerry Springer play lawyer Billy Flynn in London’s summer 2009 run of Chicago? Interesting choice. Have you seen the following?

As you’ll note, Jerry (“Jer-ry!”) is perhaps best qualified at this point to play a jolly, well-intentioned but spill-prone waiter at a cheesy, pirate-themed seafood restaurant. Please consider addition of said role to renowned stage play Chicago. And do not call Guttenberg next. Thanks. Jerrio!
