Katharine McPhee, phone home

Steven SpielbergAmerican Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee disclosed on Extra last night that she got a message from Steven Spielberg before the season finale, and he wants to meet with her. She even said (and I find this interesting) that since he was calling, she wasn't sure if winning would be best for her.

Now, what could Spielberg possibly want to meet with Katharine McPhee about? Is he doing a remake of The Wizard of Oz and he wants her to sing the theme song?

Maybe she was asked to audition to play Elphaba in Wicked. I hear That Steven Spielberg wants to make Wicked into a movie.

I hope she has better luck with acting. Although her role would be that of a perfectionist b---- overcoming bulimia while sleeping with Ryan Seacrest. He said she had nice boobs but sorry Kat, I guess the whole thing was a bust, cause you didn't win !!!!!!

Geez, is this a hoax or has Spielberg been converted to Scientology by his tiny friend Tom? WTF?

The first thought that came to my mind was this when I found out Spielberg contacted McPhee: She looks just like a younger version of his wife Kate Capshaw (when Kate had dark hair)...

When I first heard the rumor of Spielberg attempting to contact Katherine McPhee, it occurred to me that she holds an uncanny resemblence to Kate Capshaw...only with dark hair....hmmmmmm.

Not only does he want her to sing the theme song -but star as Dorothy- The remake would have undoubtedly incredible Special effects. I CAN"T WAIT!!
And for the fun of it
Simon - plays The wizard-Mr mean turns nice guy. Elliot(my Fav) stars as scarecrow (not because of his teeth). Chris- the lion- far from a coward- but He can ROAR. Taylor the tinman- who else has heart and soul. Randy "DAWG" as Toto. Paula- wicked witch- this is a stretch i know- but if she can channel her hate for Simon ww would witness a sensational transformation.

I'll bet his kids wanted to meet her. He had a "few" strings he can pull.
