According to the New York Post, ALICE COOPER is in negotiations to play the Green Goblin in Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, the rock musical with music and lyrics by U2′s Bono and The Edge and a book by Julie Taymor, Glen Berger, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
The idea of casting Cooper comes from the show’s producer, Michael Cohl who’s willing to pay Cooper $150,000 a week.
According to Wikipedia, the musical is based on the Spider-Man comics created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, published by Marvel Comics, as well as the 2002 film about the character, and the Greek myth of Arachne. It tells the story of the origin of the character, his romance with Mary Jane and his battles with the evil Green Goblin.
Turn Off the Dark is the most expensive Broadway production in history.
