Britney Spears Offered Role Of Virgin Mary

Britney Spears may not be the world's best parent, but one producer thinks she's a good enough actress to play the Virgin Mary!
Us Weekly reports exclusively in its new issue that Spears, 26, has been offered the role in the film Sweet Baby Jesus, a satirical retelling of the nativity story. (Perhaps Spears' experience with wigs helps her get into the act.)

The character Mary is a pregnant 19-year-old unsure of her baby's paternity who goes into labor on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, Maryland, as rumors swirl that the birth is Jesus Christ's second coming. (Click here for more on Britney's twisted childhood.)

"I had to convince my partners because they were like, 'Oh, no. Britney?'" the film's French producer, Philippe Rebboah, tells Us.

"But I thought it was brilliant. It's a bit ironic that she would play the Virgin Mary, no?"
Rebboah says Spears is reviewing the script and will make a decision within days. The film is set to shoot in March.

Also mulling roles: Lily Tomlin and Melanie Griffith.

Will Spears take the part? Rebboah has faith: "She likes the idea, that's what I heard."

If she takes the part, let's hope she doesn't wear any of these outfits!
