Are fans of "High School Musical" and Ziggy Stardust about to have an awkward meeting of the minds?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Bowie is in talks to play an unspecified role in the coming-of-age comedy "Will," which will star "HSM" leading lady Vanessa Hudgens.
Also added to the cast of the Walden Media/ Summit Entertainment co-production are Liam Aiken and Lisa Kudrow, who join Hudgens, Aly Michalka and Scott Porter.
Todd Graff and Josh Cagan wrote "Will," which focuses on a high school outcast (Aiken) who forms an unexpected bond and an unexpected band with the most popular girl in school (Hudgens). The story culminates at their school's battle of the bands.
Kudrow will play the mother of Aiken's character.
Best known as one of the most influential musicians of the past 40 years, Bowie's acting credits include "The Hunger," "The Last Temptation of Christ" and, most recently, "The Prestige."
Aiken was last seen in "Fay Grim" and "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events."
"Friends" and "The Comeback" star Kudrow was featured in the December release "P.S. I Love You." She has "Powder Blue" and "Hotel For Dogs" on tap.
