“I told the people at my agency—William Morris—that I wanted to do some more acting, because I had gotten well-known from Hollywood Squares, so I thought I would get out there and go back into acting for a little bit, and this part came up. They were looking for someone who could actually play this thing—who wanted to play this thing—and I was pretty interested so I auditioned. I auditioned for it twice, and landed it.” Actor/Writer/TV Personality and now star of stage, Bruce Vilanch, on being cast as Edna Turnblad in the national tour of Hairspray—during a 2003 interview on location at the San Vicente Inn in West Hollywood, California.
