John Travolta may soon have a new career as a cross-dresser ... at least on the big screen.
According to Variety, the actor is close to signing on for the role of Edna Turnblad in the upcoming movie version of the hit Broadway musical Hairspray.
Funnyman Harvey Fierstein created the part of the boisterous Baltimore housewife for the original stage production. Meanwhile, screenwriter Leslie Dixon ('Mrs. Doubtfire') recently signed on to pen the upcoming film which is reportedly aiming for a September start date.
