Elijah Kelley to star in Sammy Davis Jr. biopic?
07.14.07 by REELZ
"Who's Elijah Kelley?" you say? Well, you might not know him yet, but that situation won't last for long.
The young actor, who plays Seaweed in next weekend's Hairspray, is lined up to play "the greatest living entertainer in the world"--i.e., Sammy Davis Jr. reports MTV.com.
"It's in the works--I'm allowed to say that now," said the pint-sized dancing dynamo during the Hairspray premiere.
Nothing has been inked yet, but if you've seen Hairspray, you know that if anyone should play the candyman in a biopic of his life, Kelley is the perfect choice.
