Hopelessly Devoted

It's the Year of the John -- Olivia Newton-John, that is. Everybody's favorite Rydell High grad is heading back to the screen -- both big and small -- this year.

Yesterday she started shooting "Score: A Hockey Musical," where she plays the mom of a teen hockey phenom. It's set to hit theaters in October, and if it's half as good as her other skating movie, "Xanadu," it'll be terrible. (We kid -- with its hooky ELO score and awesome roller-disco setting, "Xanadu" is a time capsule of delicious '80s cheese.)

And this spring, she'll appear on "Glee," singing her 1981 hit "Physical" with track-suited cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.

Does it get any better than that? Olivia Newton-John and musicals go together like -- well, like rama lama lama ke ding a de dinga a dong.
