SYNCHRONICITY DESK: Because it's a confluence of things that we love and because it's much been discussed in portions of the ALOTT5MA Twittersphere this evening, we feel compelled to note that 5-time Tony nominee and 2-time winner Sutton Foster has signed to play the lead in a new show from Gilmore Girls creator/mastermind Amy Sherman-Palladino. Despite consistently excellent stage work, Foster's done very little TV or film work (her most prominent role was as the girl who was so hot she was making Bret sexist on Flight of the Conchords), but her brassy style seems an interesting fit with Sherman-Palladino's trademark rapid-fire dialogue. The show is titled Bunheads (not to be confused with Josh Charles' girlfriend's debut novel of the same name), and Foster will play "a Las Vegas showgirl who impulsively marries a man and moves to his sleepy coastal town, taking a role at her mother-in-law's dance school."
