Tori and Dean Going To Broadway?

From bed-and-breakfast to Broadway: newlyweds Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott look to be heading to the Great White Way, to costar in Chicago. The New York Post's Page Six column reports that the husband and wife are "are currently in talks" with show producers to strut their stuff in the high-stepping, vaudeville-style musical, Spelling's rep told the paper.

Tori and Dean starred together on their Oxygen network reality series, Tori & Dean: Inn Love, based on their antics running a California B&B. Among their adventures: having a baby boy, Liam Aaron McDermott, born March 13. Tori and Dean would presumably play the roles of Roxie Hart, the murderous heroine of the story, and that of her crooked lawyer, Billy Flynn.

While married couples, including Amy Spanger and Michael C. Hall as well as Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, have starred in this current incarnation of Chicago, perhaps the most famous guest star to land in the long-running revival of the 1975 Bob Fosse stage musical was Usher, who in summer 2006 played lawyer Flynn, the Richard Gere role in the 2002 Oscar-winning Best Picture adaptation of the show.
