"Huh?" of the day.

It has been announced by the producers of the London production of Chicago that Jerry Springer will be playing the role of Billy Flynn for six weeks this summer. In the article, he basically admits that he can't sing, but says the part doesn't need great singing ability, so that's alright. I'm not sure if this is the weirdest piece of casting I've seen in that revival--the producers have hit some pretty bizarre lows already--but it definitely ranks right up there. Why could he be doing this? And will people pay to see it?
