Spears Heading For Small Screen Stardom?
Singer Britney Spears has met with WILL + GRACE star Sean Hayes and a group of producers to discuss joining the cast of a new sitcom. The 24-year-old attended the meeting to talk about a role in an ensemble sitcom about teachers, tentatively titled DETENTION. During the two hour meeting in late February (06), the TOXIC singer read lines from a script and confessed she was "aching to give acting a go", according to American magazine Us Weekly. Spears guest starred alongside Hayes on Will + Grace last month (MAR06), appearing as a conservative talk show host. A source close to the actor says, "Having seen the way Britney works, he knows she has potential." One of the producers' main concerns was that the pop star was pregnant with her second child. The source adds, "First, she laughed and said, 'Do I look it?' Then she assured them that she wouldn't jeopardize a new project. "Britney is up for it. Everyone will be meeting again soon."
