There is no musical that I love more than Wicked. With news that a movieversion is almost imminent, my brain started working overtime. First and foremost I beg, beg, beg producers to at least let original stars Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel to cameo.
After that little bit of begging I am offering to cast the movie for them free of charge. I have no doubt that Idina look alike Lea Michelle will ultimately take the role of Elphaba aka the Wicked Witch Of The West, I suggest that producers take a look at Ann Hathaway for the role. We all know that Ann is talented but the Oscars reminded me that girl can also sing.
Now that the main character is cast, let's look at frienemy Galinda. Many names have gone through my head for this role and I'm still not convinced that a Britney Spears version of Popular wouldn't be the best single to come from a soundtrack, ever. However I'm thinking that A-lister in the making Diana Agron may be the best choice that is available. The role wouldn't be much of a stretch for her, she basically plays it every week on Glee as Quinn and I think thats what makes her such an obvious choice.
Now for me the most crucial role is the love interest who comes between the friends Fieyero. On Broadway Randy harrison among others haveplayed the role but for the movie none other than my love James Franco will do. Not only does the man look awesome in tights, check out the link I promise you'll enjoy but he can sing, act and dance. He can also bring a huge smile to my face, and really isn't that what this is all about.
