Fringe: The Musical?

Illustration for article titled Fringe: The Musical?

Will Fringe's musical episode be called "Once More, On LSD?" No, apparently it'll be called "Overture." And you'll never guess who's serenading Olivia. Spoilers ahead.


I keep thinking this must be an April Fools thing, but it's still March. Anyway, Lance Reddick explains:

Oh, it's gonna be a blast. It's basically Walter telling a bedtime story to Olivia's niece and so it has these extreme versions of [the cast].


Reddick, who is a professional singer in his spare time, plays the piano in the episode and takes on a Traffic tune. Astrid does a song from A Chorus Line. Olivia vamps it up as a singing private eye. And as for who sings to Olivia? It's Nina Sharp, the cyborg COO of Massive Dynamic. The musical episode airs April 29 and we can't wait.

Is the musical episode a prerequisite now for genre TV? Then I vote for Supernatural next. Ackles can actually sing fairly well, and he's already given us one of TV's more entertaining musical moments in his "Eye of the Tiger" lip sync. And Misha Collins is up for anything.
