Live musicals are a strange trend in TV, taking some of the early theatrical magic of live TV and combining them with tweet-worthy spectacle and ridiculous casting. Now, Carly Rae Jepsen will play Frenchy in FOX's version of Grease, slated to air (and be performed) in January. It's a great casting decision, coming on the heels of her excellent Eâ�¢MOâ�¢TION, and it will certainly make this production a lot cooler. It's just a bummer that Carly Rae isn't playing... well, basically everyone in the show. [via The Hollywood Reporter]
