Waits is the devil

As reported earlier, Tom Waits will play a major part in the new Terry Gilliam picture, The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus. The Terry Gilliam fanzine Dreams now reports Mr. Waits will play Mr Nick, aka the devil.

According to Dreams, the story is set in the present day, and tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary 'Imaginarium', a travelling show - where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom.

Wasn't he originally slated to play Dr. Parnassus?

This has the potential to kick ass.

Dammit. I got this confused with Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, and took the kids to the theater.

I even stayed awake the whole time, waiting to see TW.
