    Anne Hathaway would be a FANTASTIC Elphaba!

    Kchen and Idina, please.

    What about Idina and Kristin? They worked it pretty well on stage, I'd say and it is time for some new blood in the movies. I'm tired of seeing Anne Hathaway (no offense intended) in every other movie.There are more than three actresses you know!

    Kristen would be perfect, did you hear her sing? She's great!

    105

    HELLO??? The original cast should do the movie!!! Kinda like in Rent. I'm sorry, but ur choices for the leads Perez are BAAAAAAAAAD!

  6. steph says – reply to this


    106

    this is so stupid perez! We need to protest! They can not make this film without Idina and Kristin!!!! It just can't be done. it's going to be horrible and teen boppy if they do it any other way. but thanks for the info!

    emmy rossum is a lovely girl, but I don't think she'd be vocally suitable for either part… just because she did one musical film doesn't mean she's right for every other one out there.

    AHHHHHH i LOVE wickeddd!! book & musical! now a movieeee

  9. Heff says – reply to this


    109

    Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth are the only acceptable people to be in the movie…anyone else would ruin it!

    I could see Jennifer Love Hewitt, Carrie Underwood.



  12. 112

    um obvi idina menzel && kristen chenoweth..

  13. Chels says – reply to this


    113

    ew… none of the ones you listed.. it should be the original cast with kristen chenowith and idina menzel. i have seen it 3 times- twice on broadway and once off, and those are the only two that do real justice to the parts

  14. jas says – reply to this


    114

    Forget about those people I want to see the original cast in the movie!
    Sorry Minzsie the play is NOTHING like the book!

  15. Krist says – reply to this


    115

    The original cast should reprise their roles. No one is going to be able to top Idina Menzel no one.



  16. 116

    ANNE ALL THE WAY!

  17. doubl says – reply to this


    117

    Umm, heeeellllooooo?

    Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth?

    I hope they do it like RENT, where most of the original cast is back!

  18. tom says – reply to this


    118

    Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel . They are both stars in their own right. That might seem a bit old for a movie version. But I say go with it.

  19. sarah says – reply to this


    119

    Reese Witherspoon as Glinda. For those asking for Kristin and Idina, they are too old to play school girls now!



  20. 120

    love this news. you have just made my day. Idina and Kristin all the way xx

  21. Anon says – reply to this


    121

    I say Amy Adams, Emmy Rossum, Kristine Chenoweth, anyone who can both ACT and SING. I love Ann Hathaway, but I don't think she can sing! You might want to make room for Meryl "ABBA" Streep. Find a spot for her, bcz girlfriend can S.I.N.G….and dance a little too! You should also look at the cast of High School Musical. Not bcz I think they are all that, but bcz you do want someone to come and see the damned movie, besides a handful of gay men and their mothers. BTW. How come no one wants the Tony Award winning actress who created the part on Broadway, to be in the movie. I'm talking about Taye Digg's wife. She is amazing.

    122

    OMG! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS!!!!
    I read the book and it wasn't that good but the musical is amazing! I love the songs!
    AHHHH IM EXCITED!

  23. joey says – reply to this


    123

    Kristen Chenowith and Idina Menzel!!! there are no others!!

  24. lana says – reply to this

  26. Ashle says – reply to this


    126

    Kristen Bell baby!

  27. salmo says – reply to this


    127

    No one could beat Idina Menzel as Elphaba, but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Kristen Bell as Glinda!!!

  28. tina says – reply to this


    128

    ugh, haven't they ruined enough musicals by turning them into films with big names who can't sing for crap?? it's pathetic.

  29. Chels says – reply to this


    129

    I would want the original Elphaba and Glenda: Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith! You can't do any better than them!

  30. caca says – reply to this


    130

  34. laura says – reply to this


    134

    EDEN ESPINOSA AND MEGAN HILTY!

  35. Megan says – reply to this


    135

    the originals…Kristen Chenowith and Idina Menzel should do the movie. they're the only two who could do it complete justice and they deserve it the most!

  36. bianc says – reply to this


    136

    It has to be Idina Menzel, it has to. She is the only Elphaba.

  37. Wicke says – reply to this


    137

    Mandy Moore? Kristen Bell?? These ladies have to be able to BELT it out, not just look pretty in the film. It would be doing Wicked total injustice if the leading roles weren't played by Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth. C'mon Perez, have you even seen the show??

  38. danda says – reply to this


    138

    original cast only.

  39. tMAST says – reply to this


    139

  40. drewb says – reply to this


    140

    OMG I'm SOOO excited!! It better be amazing!! But as for your casting suggestions…NO WAY! To any of them. I would love to see Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith in it!! Even if it wasn't a musical they'd still be amazing.

  41. jake says – reply to this


    141

    SCARLETT JOHANNSEN as Glinda
    and ANNE HATHAWAY as Elphaba

  42. sjcsp says – reply to this


    142

    I would love to see the two original cast members…Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth. They were both AMAZING in their roles!!!

  43. ashal says – reply to this


    143

    Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith

  44. ams says – reply to this


    144

    It should star Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth from the original Broadway cast - nobody could do it better than them!

  45. Misty says – reply to this


    145

    Marla Sokoloff would be so adorable!

  46. OPINI says – reply to this


    146

    Oh shit here we go again turning yet another Broadway play, musical or show into a movie. Have the movie producers not learned anything yet. Once again it will SUCK…..

  47. al says – reply to this


    147

    kristen chenoweth!!!!!

  48. SAVE says – reply to this


    148

    I so wish they were not making this film. This will kill the image we have of the Movie The Wizard of OZ forever! That fact that my childern will live in a world were that b&*ch The wicked witch of the east and west will be honored and Dorothy will be viewed as a villian is sicking to my stomach. If you care any thing about OZ and how it suppose to be DO NOT WATCH THIS PLAY OR FILM because you will never be able the enjoy the Wizard of OZ again.

  49. megsi says – reply to this


    149

    I think they should stick with the originals! Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel! No one can replace them. (:

  50. & says – reply to this


    150

    emmy!

  51. M says – reply to this


    151

    The originals! And Joey MacIntyre as the scarecrow - he played the part when I saw it!

  52. B says – reply to this


    152

    just so you know it is in both idina and kristin's contracts that if they ever made a movie they would play the lead roles…. this is not new news… do ur research.

    plus…. im not sure it will be great as a movie :/

  53. lydia says – reply to this


    153

    idina and kristen!

  54. melyr says – reply to this

  55. Elphi says – reply to this


    155

    DUH
    Kristin Chenowith and Idina Menzel.
    They've both been in movies, and they were the originals.
    Nobody else is acceptable.

  56. Yaten says – reply to this


    156

    Idina Menzel ftw.

  57. kwest says – reply to this


    157

    Idina Menzel has to reprise the role on screen! She did an awesome job in Rent when it was turned into a movie and she holds the legacy of Elphaba in Wicked on stage. I don't think anyone can match her voice for the show! They need to get Idina!

  58. Keith says – reply to this


    158

    BRING BACK IDINA AND KRISTIN! NO ONE CAN DO THE ROLES LIKE THEY CAN!



  59. 159

    hilary duff as glinda&nicole ritchie as elphaba =D i'd see it

  60. Cleo says – reply to this


    160

    IDINA MENZEL And KRISTEN CHENOWETH but then I am a dreamer. I know they are both "too old" to play the parts on film, as the stage is much kinder since the majority of the audience is too far away. Heck they were "too old" when they played it on the stage. But they are both Brilliant!

  61. Elphi says – reply to this


    161

    Kristin (Chenoweth) has said that she hopes to be in the movie.
    I've been waiting…..

  62. g says – reply to this


    162

    kristen chenowith is the best galinda ever!!! let her do it!!! and idina menzell!!! there were so phenomenal, they deserve it. but I am sure they will have to find more "box office" options. sad.

  63. Alyss says – reply to this


    163

    none of those girls could POSSIBLY sing the part of elphaba .. pick me !! i can !! =)

  64. nadin says – reply to this

    170

    gee….how about idina menzel and kristen chenowith in the roles. novel idea.

  71. Gina says – reply to this


    171

    I hope that either Idena and Kristin play the roles or two unknowns because no one else that is already known could really make it work and when movies try to get really famouse people to play roles the singing is never as good………………and if they for some reason do decide to pick known names they better not chooce Emmy Rossum for either of the roles she has a good soprano/messo soprano voice meaning she couldnt play alphaba cus she's supposed to be an atlo and she wouldn't make a good Galinda either simply cus she wouldn't be right for it .

  72. Angie says – reply to this


    172

    it should be idina and kristin. absolutely no one else would be able to do it justice like idina would. seriously, that voice is amazing.

  73. Trev says – reply to this


    173

    Idina and Kristen!!!

    Perez, this news just made my day, THANK YOU!!! :D

  74. kai says – reply to this


    174

    ppl wanting the broadway stars to star in the flick have a good point. the bad seed was all the braodway cast and that move is CLASSIC

  75. Trev says – reply to this


    175

    PS @ Schwartz:

    PLEASE don't let it get butchered a la POTO!!!!

  77. lassi says – reply to this


    177

    Indina and Christin! if they dont they have robbed us of would could be an AMAZING film!!

  78. Charl says – reply to this


    178

    Original or unknowns would be the best, Mandy Moore, Emmy Rossum, and Kristin Bell, no thank you

    Cheno might be looking a little more Madam Morrible than Galinda atm, same goes for Menzel

    i wanna know who plays Fiyero…..yummy yummy

  79. brand says – reply to this


    179

    emmy rossum would be cool to see

  80. gr8ce says – reply to this


    180

    Idina and Kristen should be starring! Can't wait for this!!!

  81. Katie says – reply to this


    181

    I'd like to see Emmy Rossum in the movie.

  82. Jorda says – reply to this


    182

    ARE YOU CRAZY?! This is TERRIBLE! A movie? Unless all the broadway people are in it, NOBODY can pull off singing those rolls. This sucks.

  83. Camil says – reply to this


    183

    EMMY ROSSUM!!!!

  84. tat says – reply to this


    184

    NO!
    i dont want them to make this into a movie
    just no
    dont touch it leave it alone
    cuz none of those girl listed could EVER pull off these roles they better get someone that has played the role previously like shoshana and megan or idina and kristin
    if this movie sucks im gunna be really pissed

  85. no-on says – reply to this


    185

    omg i am so freakin' excited.

    wicked is like.. my life!

    casting wise… someone really strong for elphaba. emmy rossum would make a great glinda…

  86. Ariel says – reply to this


    186

    They would be STUPID not to cast Idina. She is great in film too and has proven herself in Rent, Enchanted and others.

  87. Sara says – reply to this


    187

    Why not just let Idina and Kristen reprise their roles?

    Both have numerous TV/Film credits… it really shouldn't be a problem..

    And I think Anne Hathaway, Mandy Moore, and Emmy Rossum are all too soft and feminine for Elphaba, Perez. She's supposed to be angular and sharp featured. But Kristen Bell isn't a bad idea for Glinda, if she has the singing chops for it, that is…

  88. of co says – reply to this


    188

    I won't see the movie if they stunt cast it. Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth or not at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  89. anon says – reply to this

    mandy moore

  90. aly says – reply to this


    190

    omg, i hardly ever agree with you perez (still love you though), but the kristen bell idea is GENIUS

  91. Grant says – reply to this


    191

    why not just the original broadway cast?!
    Chenoweth and Menzel would be awesome in their roles.

  92. billy says – reply to this


    192

    Amy Adams—Did you not see her on SNL? She was totally trying out for the role in her opening monologue! When she was singing….HMMMM! Anyway, she would be perfect for Gelinda…As for Alphaba…I'm thinking it has to be big…Anne Hathaway might work…Can she sing?

  93. Idina says – reply to this


    193

    The originals should be in the movie - Idina Menzel as Elpheba and Kristen Chenoweth as Glinda. They are theater and movie actresses, so why not? I wouldn't watch it any other way!

  94. Kate says – reply to this


    194

    No no no!!!!!! Only Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth!!!!!!! That rest will fail miserably in comparison!!!!!

  95. kate says – reply to this


    195

    idinia and kristin PLEASE!!!!!
    i know that there were a lot of rumors that they were not the best of friends during their time on broadway, but i simply cannot imagine anybody else creating either of those roles. why mess with perfection?!?!?! stockpile "names" in the supporting roles, but nobody could be better glindas and elfies than these two women.
    ps: bring back norbert leo butz too!
    pps: carol burnet as madame morrible??? or maybe meryl streepe, depending on how mamma mia turns out?

  96. and says – reply to this


    196

    the thought of emmy rossum playing either of the lead roles makes me want to die. she is a terrible singer and actress and she's weird looking.

  97. Moi says – reply to this


    197

    Uh Kristen Chenowith, duh.

  98. KBKO says – reply to this


    198

    ZOMG KRISTEN BELL AND ANNE HATHAWAY!! THAT WOULD KILL ME.

  99. jenni says – reply to this


    199

    Idina and Kristen-who else?

  100. Liz says – reply to this

    Idina Menzel!!
