Singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth is clinging to a dream she'll be invited to join the cast of the stage musical adaptation of her cancelled Tv series Pushing Daisies.

The star teamed up with Brit Anna Friel and Lee Pace for the quirky comedy and admits she never found closure when the show was abruptly axed during a winter break, so she'd like to revisit the project onstage.

A Broadway veteran, Chenoweth has heard that show creator Brian Fuller is keen to make a musical version and she hopes that if he does, he calls her.

In a Reddit.com webchat with fans last week (ends06Feb15), she wrote, "I would very much like for him (Fuller) to do that... We've talked about it and I just want to encourage him to do that, because none of our cast got closure. We didn't find out that we were cancelled until Christmas, and so we were all out for Christmas break and didn't get to say goodbye.

"It (Pushing Daisies show) was a cult favourite, and I'm probably the most proud of that. I liked playing the underdog. I liked playing the woman who was in love with a man that she couldn't have. I don't think there's a person alive who doesn't understand loving a person they can't have - maybe they're emotionally unavailable, married, in love with somebody else - who knows the reason, but that was a good part. Olive Snook, I loved her. Plus she was a terrible waitress."

And, talking of adaptations, Chenoweth is thrilled to hear movie executives are planning a big screen version of her hit stageshow Wicked.

She adds, "First of all, I'm glad they are going to do a movie. I figured they'd do it someday... I'd love to be involved. It is a huge part of my life. I don't know who I'd play."
