George Michael Signs Up For New US Sit-com George Michael has revealed he’s starring in a new American TV sit-com with Trainspotting star Johnny Lee Miller. The singer has no previous acting experience (unless you count the odd Wham! video) but has signed up to the new series as part of a hectic upcoming schedule. He says, “I’m going to have the most phenomenal year – even though there are people who’d like me to experience a tough time. “There’s an American tour planned and I’m starring in a big US comedy drama called Ellie Stone with Johnny Lee Miller. The writers want to name each episode after my songs.” Sounds, er, brilliant!
