Christina Aguilera will play a small-town girl turned singing sensation in Burlesque, a film set at a risque nightclub in Los Angeles. The role will be Aguilera’s movie debut, and the first real acting she’s done since The Mickey Mouse Club. Steve Antin, executive producer of Pussycat Dolls: Girlicious—and jilted jock Troy from The Goonies—will direct. Whether it’s Aguilera’s Cabaret or the next Showgirls, we should at least see some steamy musical numbers—from “Lady Marmalade” to Back to Basics, she’s had plenty of practice on stage.
