Barbra Streisand Will Finally Play Mama Rose in 'Gypsy' Movie

Barbra Streisand is nearing the end of negotiations to play the iconic role of Mama Rose in a new movie version of the classic musical Gypsy.

The 73-year-old actress has been attached to the project for many years and at one point she was said to be directing the film.

Barbra will produce alongside Joel Silver and the movie is set to be made with STX Entertainment. Oscar-winner Barry Levinson will direct while Richard LaGravenese will write the script.

“It’s Barbra Streisand doing one more, if not the last, movie musical of her career,” STX chairman Adam Fogelson told Variety. He says he is excited by “the type of talent that is clamoring to work with her on one of the most famous and satisfying musicals ever.”

Rosie O'Donnell Bashes Donald Trump in Funny 'Grease' Parody

Rosie O’Donnell belts out a parody of the Grease song “There Are Worse Things I Can Do” while bashing presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The former talk show host made a surprise appearance at Disaster the Musical on Broadway on Thursday night (April 7) and sang the parody to help raise money for charity.

“When Seth [Rudetsky] said ‘would you do something at Disaster,’ I thought, ‘You know, what’s the biggest disaster?’ Out of all these talented singers and I’m the one singing for money, it doesn’t make sense,” Rosie said while introducing the performance.

In the parody, Rosie listed all of the “worse things” that Donald could do including build a wall, repeal Obamacare, do a weird thing with his hair, brag about his tiny hands, have bright orange skin, and much more.

Last night, Rosie O'Donnell joined us for a VERY special #DisasterRelief performance with her own Donald J. Trump version of "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" from Grease! #PrepareForDisaster
