Great news tonight from the UK: exclusive from the Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye reveals that Dame Judi Dench has joined Tom Hooper’s all-star movie of “Cats,” based on the hit musical.
Dame Judi joins Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, Sir Ian McKellen, and James Corden. She’ll play Old Deuteronomy, but we’ll think of her as Young, just as well!
Wow: I may actually be able to watch this movie now. They’re really sweetening the pot every day. After this, I do hope Tom Hooper gets back to drama without music. First “Les Miz,” now this.
Judi Dench makes everything better. You can’t deny it!
