The New York Post‘s Page Six column reports that the husband and wife “are currently in talks” with show producers to strut their stuff in the high-stepping, vaudeville-style musical, Spelling’s rep told the paper.
Her rep confirms to PEOPLE that an offer was made, but Spelling, 34, and McDermott, 40, have not yet committed to it. The pair, who were in New York this week for Fashion Week, also went to see the show while they were in town.
The pair already star together on their Oxygen network reality series, Tori & Dean: Inn Love, based on their antics running a California B&B. Among their other adventures: having a baby boy, Liam Aaron McDermott, born March 13.
Spelling and McDermott would presumably – and respectively – play the roles of Roxie Hart, the murderous heroine of the story, and that of her crooked lawyer, Billy Flynn.
While married couples, including Amy Spanger and Michael C. Hall as well as Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, have starred in this current incarnation of Chicago, perhaps the most famous guest star to land in the long-running revival of the 1975 Bob Fosse stage musical was Usher, who in the summer of 2006 played lawyer Flynn – the Richard Gere role in the 2002 Oscar-winning Best Picture adaptation of the show.
