Larry King's wife SHAWN SOUTHWICK is in negotiations to secure a role in the new Spider-Man musical on Broadway.
The star was due to open for Danny Gans at a Las Vegas show this summer (08) but the entertainer's tragic death last month (May09) left her out of work.
And Southwick, who has two children with the legendary talk show host, is planning a move to the New York stage in the new show, created by Irish rockers U2.
The singer/actress admits she has auditioned for the role of a villainess in the upcoming production, but will not reveal whether she has been successful in landing the part, according to New York Post gossip column PageSix.
The Spider-Man musical is set to open on Broadway in 2010.
