    I would really love to see Kristin and Idina reprise their roles…they are both amazing…if not I guess maybe Reese Witherspoon and Emmy Rossum could both be promising!!! I love Emmy…she was amazing in "Phantom of the Opera"…whoever they get better not mess up my fave musical!!!

    NO NO NO NO NO. Wicked is one of those musicals that SHOULD NOT leave the stage. Hairspray? fine, whatever. Mama Mia? pushing it, but meryl streep can do no wrong. a movie will fuck this musical up, ESPECIALLY if Idina Menzel is not Elphaba. i LOVE Wicked and DO NOT want it to be popularized any more than it is. Stupid Steven Schwartz, selling out. bastard.

    207

    UM…Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth, how could they not!

  8. SNARK says – reply to this


    208

    IT TOTALLY SHOULD BE IDINA AND KRISTIN!



  9. 209

    Duh…Kristen Chenowith and Anne Hathaway, baby! I can't wait!!

    im seeing it in august cant wait…i LOVE LOVE LOVE emmy rossum but i doubt they would put her in this AND phantom

  11. Mallo says – reply to this


    211

    Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth..ONLY.

  12. Katie says – reply to this


    212

    Idina Menzal and Kristen Chenoweth for sure. Its not like they have starred in movies b4, i think those two should be the first names on the list.

  13. kabal says – reply to this


    213

    this could either be amazing or they could destroy it! it better have the OBC at least Idina and Kristin…. and what is all of this talking about Anne Hathaway… love her most of movies but there is no way she could ever play any of the main characters.. ensemble??… emily rosessum as Nessa!!!

  14. sunny says – reply to this


    214

    with talent like Idina mezel and kristen chenowith - - why oh WHY would you want to try to find talent that 'might' be able to sing. and even if they could carry a tune… they'd never be able to do it like those 2. I think they'd be great for an on screen adaptation. They've both already proven themselves, Kristen with Annie and The Music Man and Idina with Rent. c'mon! show a little respect!

  15. Aweso says – reply to this


    215

    kristin chenoweth & idina menzel should play the roles that THEY originated.
    they've both done movie work, it would be best.
    considering that to most die-hard wicked fans, they are galinda & elphaba.

  16. i ♥ says – reply to this


    216

    laura bell bundy… i know she's a broadway star, but how AWESOME would that be if she were g (a) linda? as for elphaba parts, who knows?

  17. egos says – reply to this


    217

    if they go with Idina and kristen theyd better get a bigger sound stage for the size of Kristens ego. I can't even imagine the agent who would have to negotiate who is getting more…both girls don't know how good they have it.

  18. kimma says – reply to this


    218

    I saw Wicked in Chicago and it was awesome! I'd see the movie version in an instant! I agree, why can't Kristen Chenoweth play Glinda?

  19. Terri says – reply to this


    219

    How about Idina Menzel….she was in the broadway version, why not the movie version as well…she's done RENT's movie version! I love her!

  20. KC says – reply to this


    220

    I refuse to see this film if the lead actresses are anyone of the girls mentioned. Emmy Rossum =ABSOLUTELY NOT. Wicked is such a genius work of the theater and one of the most original works to come onto Broadway in years. I can't believe Stephen Schwartz would trust this in the hands of Hollywood's directors. And whoever spelled it "Glenda" needs to do their research.

  21. Manda says – reply to this


    221

    Idina Menzel needs to play Elphaba! They need to keep the originals.

  22. i ♥ says – reply to this


    222

    keep the original…idina and kristin FTW!

  23. Dhear says – reply to this


    223

    DUH…..Kristen Chenoweth!!

  24. Steph says – reply to this


    224

    omg they have to have idina and kristin! it wouldn't be the same without them!!

  25. Lemmi says – reply to this


    225

    i would deffiantly go see the movie!!!!
    i'm meant to be going to see it on the west end next month!
    CAN'T WAIT!

  26. phoen says – reply to this


    226

    i dont see why they dont let the ORIGIONALS play the parts. kristin chinoweth as "galinda/glinda" and the AMAZING idina menzel as "elphaba". there both amazing on broadway and their both actresses…so, they both can sing AND act…sounds like a hit to me…

  27. josh says – reply to this


    227

    Idina and Kristin are no strangers to the big screen… I say definitely bring them back for the movie… they are what MADE the show and soundtrack so huge. Can't wait!

  28. kt says – reply to this


    228

    um…

    idina menzel and kristin chenoweth sound good to me

    geez

  29. me says – reply to this


    229

    i don't think any of the girls mentioned have the vocal chops except maybe emmy rossum [and not elphy's btut glinda's] i would be thrilled if they brought back the OBC but i don't know if they would. i adore them but it's easier to play 22 when you're 30-something on stage than in film. it worked for rent because they never gave the character ages but in wicked the girls are supposed to be 20-24. just a thought.



  30. 230

    Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel are the only two who should do it.

  31. Jules says – reply to this


    231

    YEA! OMG>>>> I LOVE IT! Gotta be Kristen & Idina!

  32. aishg says – reply to this


    232

    UM IDINA MENZEL KRISTIN CHENOWETH CAROLE SHELLEY JOEL GRAY AND NORBERT LEO BUTZ DUHHH

  33. best says – reply to this


    233

    I would watch Wicked only if they have Idina Menzel take on the role of Elpheba. I wouldnt waste my time if a hollywood kid would play such a empowering and great role. I wouldnt waste my time on a chessy movie So if they have no Idina Menzel then the thunder would be gone on this movie.

  34. grand says – reply to this


    234

    Whats wrong with casting Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth??

  35. larry says – reply to this


    235

    kristen and idina have contracts that if a movie is ever produced, they will automatically recieve the title roles. so sorry perez… maybe you should actually do research, instead of sitting on your (still) fat ass all day

  36. Meme says – reply to this


    236

    If they wanted a young girl to be the lead, i'd say pic Katherine McPhee,
    she is more talented than Anne Hathaway, Mandy Moore, Emmy Rossum and Kristen Bell combined.
    I don't think it will happen but she would perfectly fit the role of Elphaba (sp?).

  37. Leena says – reply to this


    237

    Obviously, unless you know nothing about this musical (as most readers on this site probably qualify) the original cast should star in the film adaptation. No one other than Kristin and Idina should fill the roles of Galinda or Elphaba. Unless it's a traveling show, or the new Broadway cast, those are the only two ladies I'd wanna see in the film.

  38. Shaun says – reply to this


    238

    How about the original cast in the film?

  39. brand says – reply to this


    239

    Michelle Pfeiffer as Madame Mirabel

  40. Megha says – reply to this


    240

    MUST BE Idina and Kristen. No one else will be able to give justice to those roles!

  41. je says – reply to this


    241

    Idina Menzel of course!

  42. mica says – reply to this


    242

    YES! OMG HOW EXCITING!

  43. steph says – reply to this


    243

    IDINA HAS TO DO IT. she is the onlyone who can sing it, i want original cast!

  44. Becca says – reply to this


    244

    Personally, I would like to see the original broadway cast as the cast for the film. They would help to keep it as close to the original show as possible.

  45. Jpo says – reply to this


    245

    Reese Witherspoon/Amy Adams as Galinda, Meryl Streep as Morrible, Fiyero-James MArsden and as Elphaba hmmmmm like a Megan Fox perhaps and the Wizard would be John Cleese/aged Matthew Broderick/Jim Broadbent



  46. 246

    umm, the ORIGINAL cast? duh!

  47. w00t says – reply to this


    247

    Idina sucks balls. Her voice cracks and she is creepy as shit green. KERRY ELLIS ALL THE WAY!!! If you don't know who she is look her up…she is beyond amazing!

  48. Krist says – reply to this


    248

    Obviously the two original leading ladies. They're the only ones I'd like to see in the roles. NIdina Menzel & Kristin Chenowith are amazing. Or Laura Bell Bundy as Glinda. She's also amazing. =) Emmy Rossum could possibly be a good Elphiba, but idk…I'd rather see them go with someone who has played the roles on Broadway or touring before. They're two physically demanding roles that require a lot of time and energy to GET, so someone who has been in them before would be better.

  49. Krist says – reply to this


    249

    Idina and Kristen. Hands down.

  50. chels says – reply to this


    250

    251

    IDINA MENZEL
    she was in rent, and the original cast for wicked!
    obvious choice

  52. Jenna says – reply to this


    252

    I would love to see Kristen Bell in the part of Glinda! I have been hoping they would make this into a movie since I saw it on broadway and the revival of musicals into film came into play.

  53. I Lov says – reply to this


    253

    Are you kidding that's all the amazing musical would need is any of those spoiled hollywood harlets ruining the roles. I say keep it O.G. Edina and Chritine.

  54. mimi says – reply to this


    254

    idina and kristin are galinda and elphaba. they are my favorite elphie and galinda ever!!

    Re: Porn_Mobile_Man

    Porn Mobile Man rules, and the original stars from Broadway should be in the movie too! They're the ones who made it a hit, so why should some troll like Reese Witherspoon come in and grab the glory?

  70. Veryu says – reply to this


    270

    Have you seen the previews for Mamma Mia?! That looks like the cheesiest, most craptastic movie EVER!! I can only imagine what they would do to that awesomeness that is Wicked! I, for one, do not want there to be a Wicked movie, the show is AMAZING!!! Let's just leave it at that!!

  71. coco says – reply to this


    271

    "Kristin Chenoweth DUH! BUT NO Idina menzel! I hate that Bitch she is one ugly mofo and not that good at singing either. YUCK! Sutton Foster anyone? "

    To whomever wrote that above I can't even believe you would use those words against the absolutely wonderful and amazing Idina Menzel. I highly doubt you have as much talent as Idina and for that I doubt you should say anything about her other than praises. She has accomplished so much in the years she's spent on theatre, broadway and in film that anyone should aspire to her. Come back when you are nominated for a tony AND win a tony, star in an original broadway show that makes its way all the way to film and runs on broadway for over 10 years, make and record your own album, and win an award for best actress in a musical. Maybe then you can say that with a little something to back you up.

    272

    I vote for Andy Dick and David Spade

  73. Maure says – reply to this


    273

    IDINA MENZEL and KRISTEN CHENOWETH…. ahbviously.
    There's so much they can screw up though.

    I vote for the OBC cast!

  74. LadyB says – reply to this


    274

    Ok I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE wicked, and the original ladies are SO SO SO SOOOO good, buuuut, they are way too old to play these parts on film! On stage is different, you don't tell the difference but in movies you CAN tell if some 30 year old is trying to pass off as younger. These rolls are more in the 20's area, IMHO. I would love to see them cast unknowns like in Hairspray, maybe a star or two in the cast, but the leading ladies need to bee GOOD. Anne Hathaway or Emmy Rossum (who wasn't so good in Phantom of the Opera) can't pull it off. Laura Bell Bundy would do an amazing job as Glinda, but she might be too tall (lol, i know, but I always imagine Glinda as petite and shorter than Elphaba).

  75. itsob says – reply to this


    275

    I think much like RENT, only the originals will do this musical justice. No one can sing "Defying Gravity" like Idina Menzel.

  76. Jerry says – reply to this


    276

    Mandy Moore and Emmy Rossum would be good Glindas. I oculd actually see lindsay Lohan as a potential Elphaba!

  77. Wicke says – reply to this


    277

    Why not have Idina and Kristin do it? They're both talented actresses, and the best in the role.

    It needs to be Idina and Kristin!!!! ALL THE WAY!!

  83. erica says – reply to this


    283

    Well for rent they did most of the original cast except for two, so I think it would also be appropriate if they chose Kristen and Idina for the roles. They are the original and the best choice.

  84. micha says – reply to this


    284

    UMMM…. Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel DUH!!!! They ARE those roles, and NEED to play them in the film!!!

    290

    i am SO excited. i loved the book and i've always wanted to see the broadway play, but never got to! (Although i listen to the soundtrack and love it). I want Idina Menzel to play elphaba because i've heard her sing Defying Gravity and the bitch is GOOOOOD. ohhh i cant wait!

  91. Kyle says – reply to this


    291

    It's gotta be Anne Hathaway as Elphaba and Amy Adams as Glinda.

    James McAvoy as Fiyero? Just putting that out there.

    SIGN ME UP!
