Rosie O'Donnell in Talks for Primetime Drama

by at . Comments

Look out, Laguna Beach, you may have some new dramatic competition!

It's not from a likely source, either: Rosie O'Donnell is in talks to star in her own primetime drama from the creators of Nip/Tuck. She'd star as the caustic, diarrhea-of-the-mouth-plagued lottery winner Dawn Budge, whom Rosie memorably portrayed in a much-buzzed-about guest-starring turn.

The rumor is so strong, moreover, that Nicole Kidman wants to be in the pilot. No word on whether any co-hosts from The View would appear.

Also no word on whether or not Star Jones would guest star as Rosie's annoying next door neighbor.

"They're in talks to do a show that would film in New York. I don't know about Nicole," said a rep for O'Donnell.

Hey, we hear Tara Reid is looking for work, too.
