Word of a possible Mean Girls musical comes as welcome news to none other than one of the film’s original stars, actress Amanda Seyfried.

Writer Tina Fey has previously expressed interest in a musical stage adaptation of her 2004 sleeper hit, saying: “I thought the movie in some ways mostly appealed to young girls and gay men, and I feel like that could be a recipe for success on Broadway” in 2007.

Recently, Fey floated rumors of a possible adaptation yet again, and Amanda Seyfried just can’t take the suspense anymore. She wants in, having flexed her music chops in films like Mamma Mia! and Les Miserables, but it’s the role she’s eye-balling that caught our attention.

The original film marked 27-year-old Seyfried’s film debut, where she played dim-witted “plastic” Karen Smith, a crony of “queen bee” Regina George (played by Rachel McAdams). It’s is reportedly that role, the Regina George role, that Seyfried is interested in taking on for the musical adaptation.

During her photo-shoot with Allure, Seyfried confessed: “I desperately want to be Regina.”

She also dished about her former co-star, Lindsay Lohan. She said that while they were shooting the film nearly ten years ago she greatly admired Lohan, even though they didn’t really hit it off as friends.

“She’s talented,” Seyfried said before pausing and correcting herself: “Was.”

Another pause, another self-correction. “I mean, I don’t know…. She was so bright-eyed.”

Indeed she was.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Amanda Seyfried? Do you think she would have what it takes to bring Regina George to the stage if a Mean Girls musical ever gets off the ground? Sound off!
