Marisa's Sweet Charity Dreams Come True

OSCAR winner MARISA TOMEI has discovered that mentioning dream roles in TV interviews can pay off - she has landed the lead in her favourite musical.

The actress told American broadcaster DIANE SAWYER that she'd always dreamed of starring in SWEET CHARITY, and was taking singing lessons to perfect her voice while promoting her movie IN THE BEDROOM.

The producers of a planned Sweet Charity revival saw the TV chat show and asked her if she'd be interested in a lead role - Tomei will star in the show on Broadway, New York, later this year (03).

She says, "Diane Sawyer asked me which musical I'd like to do and I said Sweet Charity - and one of the producers was watching, and their actress had just dropped out, so they called me."
