Apparently, when Fiona Apple isn't busy thinking up extraordinarily long album titles, she fantasizes about being a superhero. In France.
Okay, maybe it's never been her fantasy, but it is Apple's new job. The singer will play an activist named BioFrau in an episode of the French TV series H-Man . To be fair, judging from the teaser-trailer, the series appears to be a superhero spoof -- think Archer or Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law , only live-action. It's also the baby of Joseph Cahill , who directed Apple's "Every Single Night" video, which no doubt explains her involvement.
Fiona Apple's latest album, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do , was released last June and peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200.
