Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle and star Dev Patel are in talks to appear on the real Who Wants to Be A Millionaire. This according to The Sun, if it happens, the two would play together on a celebrity edition where the winnings would be donated to an Indian children’s charity.
Wouldn’t it be great if Freida Pinto, who plays the romantic lead in the film, was available to be the “phone a friend” option? I have a feeling that the real life Pinto probably wouldn’t be of much help on a large money question (she wasn’t much of a help at that moment in the film), but it would be cool none the less. Wait a second, is Who Wants to Be a Millionaire even still on tv?
