Tina Fey Wants to Cast Mariah Carey In Mean Girls Musical

January 30, 2013 12:01 am

American Idol judge Mariah Carey may be headed to Broadway—or at least Tina Fey wants her to!

As shared by Ryan during “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” the Mean Girls creator is taking her film from the big screen to the stage as a musical, and she wants the songstress!

Ryan shares: “Tina Fey caught the episode of Idol…when Mariah and Nicki [Minaj] got into that back and forth about the movie and Tina was so impressed by Mariah’s knowledge of the characters that she wants Mariah to play one of the moms in the show!”

As for if the real life mom of two will officially be a cool mom? We’ll have to wait to find out as the musical is still in development stage.

In the mean time, you can catch Mariah tonight on Fox’s American Idol at 8/7c.
