Billy Dixon: The Elton John Story! Starring Adam Lambert. Wonder if Adam Lambert can play the piano? If not – start taking lessons now! This is really great casting for the music icon, whose signature glasses and fashion flare are synonymous with his Grammy, Academy and Tony Award-winning songs. John's Billy Elliot collaborator, book writer Lee Hall, is said to be at work on a film of the musician's life. Maybe they can follow suit with the film of "Billy Elliot" and turn it into an international hit musical.
