    Uhm, How about the fucking Women who Opened it on Broadway you tard,
    Kristin Chenowith and Edina Menzel.
    I won't go see it, if they cast anyone else.
    It would be a piece of shit!

    307

    Tsh, Idina Menzel and Kristen Chennoweth had better do it or it won't be worth seeing!!!!

    309

    Idina Menzel! She originated the role and is awesome! Elphaba must be played by someone who can sing the part or it would be terrible. I tire of seeing celebrities who cannot sing land the leads in musical adaptations. Cast a broadway star or an unknown or leave these brilliants artworks on the stages they were meant for.

    310

    The original members of the cast, duh. :P Anybody whose played them; I wouldn't want anybody who hasn't ever been in the production to play Glinda or Elphie in the musical.

  18. askl says – reply to this


    318

    i say they get idina menzel and christen chenoweth and forget all those other names, the originals are always the best

  19. mandy says – reply to this


    319

    I think they should get the two originals, Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith. They did it with RENT, they had most originals play in the movie. Why not for Wicked? I can't wait.

  20. David says – reply to this


    320

    Duh!

    Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth, you fool!

    they suck ass

  22. annon says – reply to this


    322

    Kerry Ellis for elphaba (although very close second Idina)
    Kirsten Chenoweth for Glinda

    simple as.
    I just hope that they dont mess it up by using a hollywood 'name' in order to get more people to go- like they need that!!! If im honest its going to be messed up- just release the shows on DVD

  23. shrub says – reply to this


    323

    MAKE IT LIKE THE BOOK!!!! sooooo much better than the musical, even though I love musicals.

  24. Emma says – reply to this

    uhmm how about the original leading ladies?

  25. chelc says – reply to this


    325

    mandy moore kristen bell?? no..elpheba has to be a bleter and glida a very high singer those 2 cant sing for crap deff idina and kristen

  26. lee says – reply to this


    326

    kristen and idina!!!!!1



  27. 327

    Very cool.

  28. itali says – reply to this


    328

    It SHOULD be Kristin Chenowith and Idina Menzel…….. there's a reason the show is so popular. But, of course, we'll get the hot flavor of the week in the film version. (Example: the film "Proof" lacked the punch and tense ferociousness that the stage version had. Gweneth is a great actress, but if they had cast the original lead, Mary-Louise Parker, it would have been a great film)

    uhmm how about Indina Menzel
    and Kristen Chenowith?!
    They are both soo amazing.

  31. alli says – reply to this


    331

    Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel (period)

  32. 12345 says – reply to this


    332

    EMMY ROSSUM IS TERRIBLE!!!
    I refuse to see it if she is the one picked, she can't sing to save her life.

    It would be amazing if Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth were invited back to play the parts



  33. 333

    Helllllooooo—-Kristin Chenoweth!!!! I would love to see no other!



  34. 334

    Kristen Bell? Can she sing? She'd make a cute glinda as far as looks go.

  35. linds says – reply to this


    335

    i think it should be the original glenda and elphaba, kristin chinoweth and idina menzel. when i think wicked, those are the only women i can imagine in the roles.

  36. bwayb says – reply to this


    336

    ok so, big fan of broadway in general… would love to see the movie version, but it would only be fantastic if the originals were in it… its no offense to those actresses, it just wouldn't feel right if idina and kristen weren't the leads… blah… but again because i am a fan i would probably go see the movie… :)

  37. klik says – reply to this


    337

    KRISTIN CHENOWETH!!!!!

  38. laur says – reply to this


    338

    That people Perez listed would be horrible for the roles in the film. If a film were to occur, it should be ONLY with the Original Broadway Cast or others that were actually in the show. The musical is written for actors and actresses with AMAZING voices, not ones with horrible ones.

    Worst Perez post to date.



  39. 339

    I've seen this in the apollo theatre in London ! It was absolutely AMAZING !!!!!!!

    341

    its gotta be the originals.. or someone with extreme vocal chords.. mandy moore is too breathy.. i want meryl streep as Madame Morrible, Zacisha as Fiyero, Michael Cane as the Wiz, kristen bell would made a hot nessarose

  42. Leeci says – reply to this


    342

  54. Steph says – reply to this


    354

    Take this with a grain of salt…this rumor has been going around for a long time. I won't believe until it is officially announced by Universal. Even by reading the article, it's seems like it will still take a while.

  55. Joani says – reply to this


    355

    I see annaleigh ashford as glinda all the way these stars definately dont have the vocal ability to pull either part off and if they do cast them it will make all the loyal fans pissed

  56. Lynne says – reply to this


    356

    The play sucked, why would I go see the movie?

  57. carol says – reply to this


    357

    I love wicked so much, but they'll RUIN IT!

    oliver tompsett from the london production is THE ULTIMATE fiyero, he should be in the film!

    so should kerry ellis! make it like rent, with actual CAST MEMBERS instead of shit celebrites. Emmy rossums done her musical adaptation already!

  58. Carme says – reply to this


    358

    It should be the original duo of idina mendzel and kristen chenowith!!!!

  59. Javie says – reply to this


    359

    Celine Dion for the green witch!!!

  60. Travi says – reply to this


    360

    Ummm how about the ORIGINAL Broadway cast?!?!?!!?!?!? It NEEDS to be Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth!!!

  61. Jenna says – reply to this


    361

    Ok so it should be Kristen Chenoweth Still As Glenda, or Reese Witherspoon would be the only other consideration. As for Elphaba, Ana Gasteyer 4 SHO!

  62. glow2 says – reply to this


    362

    No one can sing "Defying Gravity" like Idina Menzel. Has to be her and Kristen Chenoweth :0)

  63. RedHd says – reply to this


    363

    KEEP KRISTEN CHENOWITH!!!!

  64. Silvi says – reply to this


    364

    Kristen & Idina!!!!!

  65. cryst says – reply to this


    365

    EXCUSE ME! There are no two people better to play the leads than Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenowith. NO ONE! :)

  66. Anita says – reply to this


    366

    UM…. how about the oringinal actresses?

    IDENA MENZEL? Shes an amazing singer and actress. & as Glenda of course Kristen Chenoweth! I think the other actresses just wouldnt give it justice.

    I saw the show in LA with different actresses in the lead role but I STILL LOVED IT!!!

  67. Anthe says – reply to this


    367

    I would LOVE to see Reese Witherspoon as the Good Witch!

  68. daddy says – reply to this


    368

    britney as glinda and cristina as elphaba.

    madonna as morrible.

    michel and olvier gondry to direct.

  69. Sarah says – reply to this


    369

    Please let it not suck.

    They should either stick with the OBC, or go for actresses from some of the other productions. If they wanted to stay true to age, Eden Espinosa and Annaleigh Ashford are their best bets - young (not to mention incredible) talent. People already know Ashford from the MTV Legally Blonde airing, and some audiences are familiar with Espinosa from the Wicked episode of Ugly Betty.

    370

    just went to go see it for my b-day this past Sunday. I LOVED IT. I’m so happy a movie is being made. I can totally see Kristin Chenoweth playing Glenda the good witch.

  71. isis says – reply to this


    371

    I agree- take the Rent route and put Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith in the roles- no one has ever done it as well as they did. It would break my heart to see some hollywood talentless in the roles; and do any of the possiblities you listed have the chops to belt out that final note in defying gravity…i think not. But so so thrilled about this news.

  72. Jenn says – reply to this


    372

    I sure hope the play is better than the book. The book is TERRIBLE!! I hated it, and I had to make myself finish it. I was ready to jump ship 1/3 of the way into it. Awful.

  73. Allie says – reply to this


    373

    idina menzel and kristin chenoweth should play their roles from the original musical!

  74. dj mb says – reply to this


    374

    from what i've been hearing: idina menzel and kristen chenoweth will reprise their roles, but this hasn't been confirmed yet. if they will, it will certainly be great news for fans of the musical.

  75. ashle says – reply to this


    375

    Umm..NONE of those people could ever sing the songs from Wicked in a million years. They are all stylized computer-aided pop singers, and could not pull off the notes in Defying Gravity. Are you serious?!
    I'm hoping that the movie includes the original cast. but if not, two unknowns who are amazing, belting, broadway singers would be the only other way to go.

  76. LUVLY says – reply to this


    376

    angelica huston is the only one who would do justice to the role of Elphaba

  77. Megan says – reply to this


    377

    KERRY ELLIS for Elphaba! She has a PHENOMENAL voice. Her Defying Gravity blows Idina out of the water.

    I'd like to see Dianna Pilkington as Galinda, as well. She's hilarious and she and Kerry have the BEST chemistry. CHECK YOUTUBE!

  78. Katie says – reply to this


    378

    Funny that you mention Kristen Bell, I totally thought of her when thinking of who they should put in this adaptation to screen. But I really think Idina and Kristin would be amazing.

  79. Liz says – reply to this


    379

    OBC PLEASE!!! or at least some of them.

  80. Rache says – reply to this


    380

    NOOOOOO!!!!!! WHY? why do they have to ruin every musical!?! To any true musical THEATRE (not movie) lover this news is not exciting, it is shit. HORSE SHIT!



  81. 381

    dude idina and chenny are totes too old to play the roles but should definitely do the movie anyway! both fierce tranny belters.

  82. Darre says – reply to this


    382

    Cyndi Lauper - she was brilliant on Broadway in Sweeney Todd.

  83. Jenn says – reply to this


    383

    Idina and Kristin all the way!!! If they are not cast it would be heartbreaking and not do the show justice. This would be a huge letdown like when Rosario Dawson was cast as Mimi in Rent. That biotch ruined the part she could not sing if her life depended on it.

  84. Rache says – reply to this


    384

    and people saying that they should use The Kristen and Idina, get a fucking clue! Has that ever happened? No, hollywood will bring in some bitch who cant even sing in real life, stick someone elses voice on her and throw this wonderful book/musical into the garbage disposal.

  85. Lorra says – reply to this


    385

    I saw Sweeny Todd and yes, Cyndi Lauper was terrific. She would be great in the role of Glinda

  86. benga says – reply to this


    386

    Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowyth!

  87. Matty says – reply to this


    387

    Clearly it has to be Idina and Cheno.. who else could it possibly be? Hollywood dont stuff it up by having superstars that would make it all about them.. the film needs to focus on the story not the stars. Judy garland wasnt a star before the Wizard of Oz.. and that will live forever.

    idini!!! or kristen….the originals!!!!

  89. mgad says – reply to this

    EEE!!
    I LOVE wicked.
    I think they should use Idina Menzel for Elpheba because she's perfect at the part…

  90. ANG says – reply to this


    390

    ANNE HATHAWAY!!!!! She would be perfect!!

  91. Heath says – reply to this


    391

    Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel should star in it!

    393

    umm hello? Jurnee Smollett from the great debaters. she's also the chick that played olsen twins best friend on full house. she's black but light and she can play elphba cuz she's green. she has a killer voice i heard.

  94. neenz says – reply to this


    394

    Looove you Perez, but BLEGH! None of those girls would be worthy of playing Galinda or Elphaba. Christina DeCicco did an amaaaazing job as Galinda.

  95. stace says – reply to this


    395

    How about the two original leads? Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth!! They were both amazing, and both nominated for Tonys for their work as those characters. Idina won that year!

  96. Katie says – reply to this


    396

    Honestly I don't want to see it as a movie. Often times movies butcher amazing musicals and leave out the best songs.

    But if it must be a movie then definitetly Kristen Chenoweth as Glenda and Idina Menzel as Elphaba. No one better than the originals.

  97. moe says – reply to this


    397

    only one person - the broadway original - idina menzel!
    if they don't get her the whole things going to HELL!!!

  98. Az says – reply to this


    398

    Idina and Kristin should play Elphaba and Glinda!

  99. beebs says – reply to this


    399

    why wouldnt kristin chenowith and idina menzel play the parts??? thet're awesome!!

  100. brown says – reply to this

    As long as they can really sing and they make it as true to the book and play as possible, i will be there.
