Maybe we’re just lamenting how awful this year’s American Idol tour is going to be, but we’ve been thinking a bit about the great live performers who have come out of Idol, and there’s one thought we can’t get out of our heads: Adam Lambert needs to star in a movie musical. Yes, he’s now a big star (working on a summer tour and next single “If I Had You”), but we think his combination of talent — killer pipes, acting chops and total comfort with leather pants — would serve him incredibly well in a film adaptation of certain musicals. Which ones? Well, word is that Green Day’s American Idiot stage production may be on its way to Hollywood (Tom Hanks’ production company Playtone is seeking the rights to the film.) so that’s a start. But we’ve selected several other projects that are just crying out for a little Glam(bert).
