Because the universe can be a bit of a jerk sometimes.

After seeing the numbers that the Sound of Music Live! pulledin for NBC, Fox is all, “Hey. We want what you have!” so they’re teeing up a Grease musical. I guess they figured they would shift the demographic in their crosshairs from those who love The Sound of Music, to those who are slightly too young to love The Sound of Music, but are still incredibly old.

The “event” will air in 2015, and since the whole thing is just being announced now, we don’t have much in the way of casting details, but we’ll all probably be spared any of the original cast, as Travolta might be able to play a 20-something these days, but a teenager is a bit of a stretch.

Of course, Fox’s move isn’t without precedence, as they managed to fight long odds and an incredibly annoying premise with Glee. They know what they’re doing when it comes to shoving annoying stuff down our throats.

I guess it’s not a surprise that an actor who appeared on VH1‘s “Celebrity Rehab” OD’d, but it’s still sad news, nonetheless.

Actor Jeff Conaway (“Taxi,” Grease) was found unconscious on May 11th. He’s been residing in a California hospital ever since, and it’s not yet known if 60-year-old Conaway will make a recovery. His manager thinks pain pills were the likely culprit, saying that the actor has never been able to “exorcise his demons.”

See, this is what happens when you cancel soap operas: actors go into comas in real life. I wish the “Babylon 5″ star a full recovery, but if you start seeing a guy around Hollywood who looks just like Conaway but has a strange mustache, be suspicious. (Hollywood Reporter)
