With A Star Is Born break­ing the box of­fice and get­ting plenty of Os­car buzz, Lady Gaga has be­come a mon­ster movie star. Now, Star can share that she’s been of­fered a plum role in the big-screen adap­ta­tion of Wicked, play­ing witch Glinda — the role orig­i­nated by Kristin Chenoweth on Broad­way! “She’s the num­ber one choice for pro­duc­ers,” spills an in­dus­try in­sider. Not that the singer is rush­ing into any­thing. “She’s the kind of per­son who needs to feel out and bond with the peo­ple she’s go­ing to work with,” says the pal, who notes that Gaga, 32, has an­other good rea­son to stall: “She’s never been hot­ter — or pick­ier — than she is now, but she knows that if she waits to sign un­til af­ter she wins an Os­car, they’ll have to give her even more money!”
