Stage star ... Peter Andre mocked-up in role

Exclusive

PETER Andre is being lined up to play Danny Zuko in West End musical Grease - the role made famous on film by John Travolta.

The Australian singer, 36, is a huge fan of the show and told the cast on a visit last week that he would love to join them.

Bosses have contacted his management asking him to sign up - and last night pals said he WILL take to the stage.

One said: "Pete has had lots of offers from musicals but Grease is one of his favourites.

KATIE%20PRICE
Shelved ... Jordan

"He loves the character of Danny and he's confident that he will be able to play him - even if only for a short stint."

Pete has long hankered after the role of the 1950s high school rebel who falls for Sandy - played in the movie by Olivia Newton-John, pictured above in a mock-up with Peter.

He was reportedly in talks to take the part several years ago - with then-wife Katie Price, 31, lined up to play goody two-shoes Sandy.

The friend added: "His diary is pretty chocker at the moment so it wouldn't be until next year."

Peter would join a long list of star names who have played Danny since the musical premiered in 1972.

Richard Gere, David Hasselhoff, Craig McLachlan and the late Patrick Swayze have all played him.

The current West End show, at London's Piccadilly Theatre, features former Hear'Say singer Noel Sullivan, 29, as Danny.

rumors in The Metro this morning that Emma Bunton is looking at a role in Grease also.

No way they can cast someone that old as Sandy?

Why not?  Olivia Newton John was in her 30s when she appeared as Sandy in the film.

Less 'Grease' and more 'arthritic lube'

See Jordan in LA with all the papps? Darling, she's a STAR! Now all she has to do is just stay there.

Emma Bunton simply does not have the PIPES. Nor is she the sort who can go from innocent to slutty. If I went to see this and she was one of the leads, I'd want my money back.

We need a statistician to advise us of the likelihood of her being hit in a drive-by in LA. Not being funny here but her tan is so dark you could stick an afro wig on her and she'd be ready for a role as a prostitute in a 70s blaxpoitation movie.
