In Elton John’s autobiographical ABC sitcom pilot Him and Us (which stars Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Anthony Stewart Head as a spoiled gay middle-aged rocker), the role of Freddy Lazarus, the rock star’s beleaguered manager, was written for a man, but the part has gone to Kim Cattrall (pictured). ”Having a great comic actress like Kim is so exciting,” said John, who’s executive producing. ”I’m a huge fan of hers.” Fans of campy diva-tude, rejoice.
