Robin Williams Mrs Doubtfire

Hollywood actor Robin Williams admitted he has asked to play a role as Susan Boyle in a new movie.

Susan was catapulted into fame earlier this year after taking the world by storm and then coming second on the  ITV show Britain‘s Got Talent. Ever since her overnight fame sky rocketed her around the globe and caught the attention of movie producers a film has been in the pipeline.

Robin Williams recently spoke to the Daily Star and said “I’ve been asked if I want to play Susan in the movie. I think she’s incredible.”

“That clip of her singing on Britain’s Got Talent was extraordinary. So inspiring. It was quite a shock when she began to sing.”

“I saw some other clip of her singing ‘Cry Me A River’ a few years ago. It was incredible. She’s got a really great voice.”

One can not help but wonder if his role in the 1993 movie Mrs Doubtfire has anything to do with it

Robin also recently revealed that he would be returning as the voice`s on a second Happy Feet movie.

Susan Boyle with idol Elaine Paige

This is such a nice story – Susan Boyle was reportedly left “starstruck” after a meeting with her idol Elaine Paige.

According to The Sun, the Britain’s Got Talent star discussed a potential duet and the troubles of fame with the Radio 2 presenter.

“Susan was completely starstruck. It was like watching a kid at Christmas,” said a source. “It really was a dream come true.”

Paige voiced her support for the singer throughout the ITV1 talent show after Boyle claimed that she aspired to be like the veteran West End performer at her first audition.

Boyle is currently working on her debut album, which Simon Cowell has claimed will “surprise” her critics.

She is rumoured to have recorded a cover of Ella Fitzgerald’s blues track ‘Cry Me A River’ for the LP, a song she previously performed on a charity CD in 1999.

Time to place them bets on Susans Xmas number one I think 🙂

Paul Potts not competing with Susan Boyle

Paul Potts has insisted that he does not regard Susan Boyle as a rival following her recent success.

Boyle has secured a strong international fanbase since making her debut on Britain’s Got Talent in April, mirroring Potts’s own experience on the ITV1 programme’s first series in 2007.

The Scottish singer is expected to soon join Potts on Simon Cowell’s record label, however the show’s original winner does not believe that they are in competition.

Speaking to Seven magazine, he explained: “We sing different styles of music. And one’s a male voice and one’s a female voice, and that makes a difference.”

Potts also revealed that he has become more ambitious since making his TV debut two years ago.

He commented: “It’s good to get a day off occasionally. But when you’re in the market, you think: ‘What could I be doing with today to become even more successful?’ You think: ‘Just get me some work. Get me a performance on a channel’. You don’t get too many opportunities and you have to grab each one, because I have to be a success if I’m going to continue to do this.”

Potts released his second album Passione earlier this month.

Susan Boyle won’t manage entire Britain’s Got Talent live tour

Susan Boyle will reportedly only take part in a number of shows on the Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

The 48-year-old, who was admitted into the Priory clinic suffering from exhaustion after losing out to Diversity in the ITV1 show final, is said to be conserving her energy to record an album.

Boyle is currently in London where rehearsals for the 23-date live show are taking place, however organisers are yet to confirm whether she will perform on the opening night in Birmingham on Friday.

“Everything depends on Susan and how she feels. We have made it clear that we are in her hands and we just want to make sure that she is fit and well,” a source told The Sun.

“At the moment it looks like Susan will join the rest of the BGT finalists on stage on some of the dates, but she won’t do the entire tour. The details are still being worked out.

“Susan is most excited about starting work on her album and we have a responsibility to make sure she is cared for and is happy and well.”

Boyle’s brother Gerry recently dismissed speculation that the talent show star had a learning difficulty.

Mariah Carey Susan Boyle

Mariah Carey Feels Sorry For Su-Bo

Susan Boyle can add pop superstar Mariah Carey to her list of famous friends after the diva (Mariah, not Su-Bo) insisted she’s not surprised the Scottish singing sensation is freaked out by her sudden rise to stardom.

Boyle became an international star overnight when she showed off her singing skills on U.K. TV show Britain’s Got Talent, but the instant interest became too much for the spinster to handle – she checked into a mental health clinic after her final appearance on the show.

Carey, who herself suffered a physical and emotional breakdown in 2001, is far from surprised. She says, “I feel bad for her… We build people up so quickly now that of course it’s going to freak some people out. It’s difficult. It’s got to be tough.”

Susan Boyle’s earliest singing performance on film revealed

The hot favourite to win Britain’s Got Talent took the stage at Motherwell FC’s Fir Park Social Club in a singing contest between locals and visitors from a Midlands club.

Susan was drafted into the Coventry Tam O’Shanter Club’s team because someone had dropped out.

She sang powerful versions of I Don’t Know How To Love Him, from Jesus Christ Superstar, and Barbra Streisand’s The Way We Were.

But the footage of Susan, who was sporting a classic 80s perm, lay forgotten until someone made a connection between the Britain’s Got Talent star and the shy young woman in the social club.

School caretaker Gerry McGuinness, 61, who watched Susan sing live that night and kept the video, remembers it clearly.

But it was a member of his family who recognised Susan on television and suggested he looked for his tape of the occasion.

Gerry said: “I can remember that she was a shy young girl, but also very attractive back then – she turned a few heads when she came into the club.

“She was not even supposed to be singing but agreed to perform for the Tam O’Shanter team because someone had dropped out.

“Even back then, I don’t think anyone expected too much from her because she was so shy, but when she began singing people took notice.

“I watched Susan on Britain’s Got Talent but didn’t recognise her as the girl from my video until a relation called and asked if I still had the tape.”

Gerry, a Scot who now lives in Coventry with wife Ruby, added: “When I realised who it was, I called my son Jamie in Wishaw and told him I was sending up the video.

“It’s great Susan is finally getting some recognition. She is a great singer and it seems right that at some point she would get the credit she deserved.”

Gerry’s son Jamie, who handed the 1984 tape to the Record, said: “It is just amazing that nobody realised what a talent she was until now.

“When you watch the video, it seems so obvious that she was born to be a star.”

Telephone engineer Jamie, 29, who lives in Wishaw with fiancee Suzanne Schonville and children Amy, eight, and Robbie, four, added: “When you first watch it, you can’t believe that it is Susan Boyle.”

The video, which can now be seen on the Daily Record website, is the third recording of Susan to be unearthed by the Record.

Last week, we published a film of her auditioning for Barrymore’s My Kind Of People talent show in 1995 when she was 33. Click here to see the video.

We also found a charity CD from 1999 on which she sang the torch song Cry Me A River. Click here to listen to the song.

Susan, a church volunteer who lives with her cat in Blackburn, West Lothian, became a TV hit when she sang I Dreamed A Dream, from the musical Les Miserables, for her BGT audition.

She has denied reports that she’s set to pack in the ITV show because family and friends reckon she could leave and cash in on her success by bringing out a record or playing live shows.

And she insists her eyes are firmly on the show’s prize of performing at the Royal Variety Performance.

Susan has now been watched on the internet by more than 100 million people around the world and is the biggest hit ever on the video-sharing site YouTube.
