On Tuesday night at the “Eat Pray Love” red carpet , the focus was on all things culinary, spiritual and passionate — for the most part. But with director Ryan Murphy also happening to be the creator of a certain hit musical TV show, talk often turned positively “Glee”-riffic.
Murphy dished to MTV News about Britney Spears’ upcoming guest spot on the series and also spilled a couple clues about Javier Bardem’s future appearance on the show.
“He wants to be a Spanish rock star, and I’m like, ‘What about a janitor?’ ” laughed Murphy, who also said he wants Bardem to don that less-than-flattering bowl cut he sported in the Oscar-winning drama “No Country for Old Men.”
Bardem, for his part, got a chance to weigh in on that hairstyle choice Tuesday, since he stars alongside Julia Roberts in “Eat Pray Love” and also walked the carpet. Asked about the possibility of once again rocking his “No Country” locks, Bardem set the record straight.
“That haircut is passed,” he said.
That is pretty much the conclusion Murphy came to, though he continues to hold out hope for Bardem to undergo a coiffure epiphany. “I might want him to,” the Gleek-in-chief said. “I don’t think he will.”
They won’t shoot that scene until the winter, so we suppose there’s ample time for creative negotiation. Bardem, though, knows exactly what he wants to do.
“I said to him I will do a rock and roll star that sings so bad that they shut down the whole school,” he said.
Check out everything we’ve got on “Eat Pray Love.”
