Sometime this October, on a London stage relatively adjacent to the one where Harry Potter will soon be taking off his clothes (scroll down, 6th item), artistically challenged poplet Ashlee Simpson will tackle the role of Roxie Hart in the West End production of Chicago. That’s right: The world’s most famous lip-syncher since Milli Vanilli has decided it will be a good career decision to do live theater. But wait, that’s not all: Compare these promotional pics from the show (at left) with this candid from 2004 this and tell me– do  you think something other than her voice might be fake?
