Will Snatches Wicked Role

British pop star WILL YOUNG is keen to explore his dark side after auditioning to play the male lead in West End WIZARD OF OZ spin-off WICKED. The singer - who launched his acting career last year (05) in Oscar-nominated movie MRS HENDERSON PRESENTS - was spotted receiving VIP treatment at the London show recently. He's already auditioned for the role of FIYERO, currently played by Australian ADAM GARCIA, and is expected to take on the challenging part as soon as Garcia's contract runs out in six months (MAR07). A source says, "They (production bosses) are really trying to woo him and he seems keen to get started with rehearsals."
