Add Ernie Sabella to the list of Broadway stars making an appearance in the upcoming TV musical, "Annie."

Sabella is taking a brief break from the Las Vegas production of Chicago to play laundryman Mr. Bundles in the "Wonderful World of Disney" version of the smash Broadway musical comedy. Filming begins June 22 in Los Angeles. An air date for November 1999 is planned.

Bundles is the laundryman who unknowingly spirits Little Orphan Annie away from Miss Hannigan (played by Kathy Bates) and the orphanage while picking up linens.

Sabella is in prime company: The cast also includes Broadway stars Victor Garber (Daddy Warbucks), Audra McDonald (Grace), Kristin Chenoweth (Lily), Alan Cumming (Rooster) and Andrea McArdle (A Star to Be). Alicia Morton, a recent Young Cosette of Les Miserables, plays Annie.

Rob Marshall (Broadway's Cabaret and Little Me) makes his TV directing debut with the project. -- By Kenneth Jones
