Alice Cooper to play Green Goblin...

…in “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark?”
  • Alice Cooper is in negotiations to play the Green Goblin.
    I kid you not.
    The $85 million musical, which hasn’t returned one penny to its investors — including The Edge, an idiot for putting his own money in the show — is trying to hang on by casting a washed-up rock star to keep itself going through the dead months of January and February.
    It won’t work — but what a great idea!
    Alice Cooper. The Godfather of Shock Rock. A singer who used to have people’s heads chopped off in his act is going to join a show in which a chorus kid had his foot chopped off.

The critic who wrote this is obviously not a fan. That being said, while I don't really have any interest in seeing this regardless of who plays Green Goblin, I think casting Cooper would be kind of neat.

In a classic Marvel tradition, I feel that anyone who joins the cast of that show should be greeted thusly:

"Welcome to Turn off the Dark, Alice Cooper! Hope you survive the experience!"

It was my impression Turn Off the Dark has been selling pretty well. The economics of Broadway, AFAIK, are such that many major shows don't turn a profit until they've run for several years, with the expectation they'll run for several more... could be wrong, though.

I don't know what to think of this. It's not a bad choice, but it isn't the best.

Come to think of it, isn't Chris Cooper playing Norman Osborn in the next movie?

Maybe Bradley Cooper will be in the next reboot?

They could digitally resurrect Jackie Cooper to play JJ.

You aren't. It took Wicked years and years, and it sells incredibly well.

Re: Alice Cooper to play Green Goblin...

I like Alice Cooper, but he's a bit long in the tooth to be Green Goblin. Unless this play is about the golden years of Spidey.

When Norman turns into the Goblin, I wonder if he will sing "No More Mister Nice Guy."
