A-Rod to play drag queen in movie?
The star third baseman is being approached to play a drag queen in an upcoming indie movie on Salvador Dali — "The Surrealist" starring Alan Cumming.
Producers think A-Rod would be ideal in the role as Dali's "factotum social secretary" Potassa — a stunning, leggy drag queen.
"It's quite a good idea and has a serious side to it," says the director, Philippe Mora.
"Dali was obsessed with baseball. Walt Disney used to take him to [games]. At first it sounds hilarious, but it's a serious [offer]."
Mora said the idea to approach A-Rod was cooked up by Richard Dupont, a Dali and Andy Warhol acolyte who also points out the ballplayer "has great legs."
A-Rod's potential casting, of course, is still just an idea.
"It's early days," Mora said.
A source close to A-Rod says, "He's really focused on the season, and on winning a championship."
The slugger's rep had no comment.
