When pop singers star in films, the results are always 100 percent unimpeachably great. Check this out: the folks at the Sci-Fi Channel (who now want us to call it SyFy, but we definitely won't be doing that because we aren't drooling PR-company dipshits) are producing a new TV movie called Mega Python vs. Gatoroid that stars TIFFANY and DEBBIE GIBSON — not in the title roles, unfortunately. Plot synopsis from the Hollywood Reporter: "Gibson will play a fanatical animal-rights activist who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades, where they grow to mega sizes. Tiffany will play an overzealous park ranger who uses dangerous methods to save endangered alligators."

This would be the best music-movie-crossover news of the year but for the upcoming directorial debut by RZA: Wu-Tang vs. the Golden Phoenix. Good thing they upped the number of Best Picture nominees, because it's gonna be a busy year.
