    i wish they would make just make the film an adaptation of the actual book, rather than a musical. The book is amazing, and never was intended to be a musical in the first place. the story would make a really interesting fantasy-drama film as it is.

    Amy Adams!!!!

    408

    Um, the original broadway cast? Perez, will you STFU about Emmy Rossum already?

    Wicked is my favorite musical so I would be awestruck if this movie idea actually came to fruitition. I'm going to reiterate exactly what other people have said, and say that Idina, Kristen, Norbert, Joel and the rest of the cast should take on their roles in the movie. Screw Hollywood and their desire to put the best looking people in their movies, cause a lot of them can't act. If some of the original cast can't do it, then cast people that can sing and act, not just look good.

  12. Emily says – reply to this


    412

    Kristin and Idina NEED to play their roles again!! After all, they created them in the beginning!!!!

  13. matt says – reply to this


    413

    Reese Witherspoon as Glenda!!!

  14. KLRH says – reply to this


    414

    No one should play the roles but Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth. No one else should be Elphaba & G(a)linda!

  15. jo says – reply to this


    415

    Bethany Joy Galeotti would be fabulous for either parts!!!!!!
    Joy ,as we crazed fans call her, is the most talented, underrated musical star around.
    Everyone should check out her music on Youtube or itunes.

  16. M says – reply to this


    416

    As great as the original leads were, they're too old for the roles. Remember what happened when they used the original cast of RENT for the movie? Nobody wants late 30's actors playing teenagers again, and that's exactly what these 2 ladies are supposed to be! Kristen Bell for Glinda, some unknown for Elphaba! No hiring hollywood types that can't actually sing!

    418

    Hmmm…here's a novel idea…why not THE ONLY 2 ACTORS WHO COULD DO THE FILM JUSTICE- Kristen Chenowith & Idina Menzel (it's not rocket science, folks…)

  19. Steph says – reply to this


    419

    I love WICKED!

  26. M says – reply to this


    426

    Yay! Finally!!!! They better not mess up on casting! I love the original cast, but obviously their age will translate a lot on screen as opposed to stage (characters are supposed to be school aged kids, remember? not full on older adults)

  32. Nick says – reply to this


    432

    I have wanted them to make a movie of this musical for years! But it has to have Idina and Kristin in it! Anyone else and the movie will not be anywhere near as good as it should be!

  41. Annie says – reply to this


    441

    Um…how about Idina Menzel…the original Wicked Witch of the West on Broadway and who made the entire show?

  42. Chloe says – reply to this


    442

    I love Wicked!

    But if they are actually using the music they should pick better and slightly older actresses.

    I suggust Bethany Joy Galeotti. She has the vocal training, stamina and experience to play either lead.

  54. Ria says – reply to this

  55. Orly says – reply to this


    455

  58. melis says – reply to this


    458

    u think bethany joy galeotti would be GREAT as a role in wicked! i love her and she can sing, dance, act, she can do it all!

  59. tc says – reply to this


    459

    NONONONONO

  60. Matt says – reply to this


    460

    Idina Menzel can't really sing the role anymore, due to taking horrible care of her voice. Kristin could come back as Glinda or possibly Megan Hilty, who was HILARIOUS, but Shoshana Beane or Stephanie J. Block should play Elphaba (Steph being the true original Elphie). Let's just hope that Wicked doesn't take the "Phantom of the Opera" route and cast pretty faces who can't sing and make ANOTHER loser musical movie out of a Tony-award winning franchise. Seriously.

  61. Nora says – reply to this


    461

    Reese Witherspoon as Glinda? so cute!!!

  62. caiti says – reply to this


    462

    kristin chenowithh duh!

  63. shant says – reply to this


    463

    OMG!!!! I soooo hope it happens soon! I finally saw Wicked this past March for the first time after obsessing over it forever. This would be just super fantastic. And clearly, they should have Idina and Kristin play the roles.

  64. Carly says – reply to this


    464

    WHAT THE HELL
    no way.
    okay so broadway is a religious experience. you cant ruin it by putting MOVIE STARS in it. elphaba and galinda are some extremely sacred characters to some broadway fans, and i feel that in the movie they could only be played by cheno, idina, sjb, hilty, kerry, jlt, etc. people that have played the role exquisitely in the past.
    ….
    no.

  65. g says – reply to this


    465

    how about idinia and krisitn lol obv

  66. lexa says – reply to this


    466

    Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth!!!!those girls are amazing!!!they are from the original bway cast! they both totally deserve it!=)

  67. Tina says – reply to this


    467

    Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoworth. I seen them in the broadway show and they were amazing!!!!!! Anyone but them and I would be disappointed

  68. Crist says – reply to this


    468

    WTF?!
    No one can replace Chenzel. NO ONE.
    I will be forced to shoot someone if they don't use the original cast.

  69. Tyshe says – reply to this


    469

    Bethany Joy Galeotti would rock at any role, she's very musical. A very introverted, old hollywood style girl who would be perfect for any role in this movie.

  70. Jane says – reply to this


    470

    OHHHHHHHHHHHH MY GODDDDD! I AM IN LOVE WITH WICKED! I was singing The wizard and I when I found out so I ran to the computer!!!!!!!!!! aHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Ann Hathaway should play Elphaba and I think Nicole Kidman would be a great Galinda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. alexx says – reply to this


    471

    Katherine McPhee

  76. Lacey says – reply to this


    476

    Excuse me fellow Wicked lovers… Stephanie J Block is the orginal Elphie! Idina is just most known because she did the soundtrack and is still on tour! Stephanie J Block should FOR SURE do it with Kristen Chenoweth!! They do it so perfect.. why ruin it with anything else?

  77. KayKa says – reply to this


    477

    Re: Jen

    Bring back Idina and Kristen!

  78. G@ says – reply to this


    478

    I would want to see the original Broadway performers: Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Mendez. Anyone else in the movie would be sacrilege.

  79. chris says – reply to this


    479

    if they do make a movie…which ithink it is way too early for. they should make it with kristen chenowith and idina menzel. its the only way to do it. and maybe throw in a little neil patrick harris..he would be good for it.

  80. Bess says – reply to this


    480

    They should so get as much of the original cast as possible in this!!! I don't know what I'll do if they don't cast Idina or Kristin!

  81. AlliK says – reply to this


    481

    um definitely not Anne Hathaway, Mandy Moore, Emmy Rossum, Kristen Bell

    the movie would just be dumb without Idina Menzedl and Kristin Chenoweth

  82. JMW says – reply to this


    482

    How about the Original Cast members, namely Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth? They created these roles on Broadway and should rightly be able to reprise the roles on screen. And if either turn down the parts then why don't they ask some of the other people who are so well-known for their take-overs of the roles on Broadway such as Eden Espinosa and Megan Hilty? I hate how Hollywood has to go for "the big names" just so that they can bring in more money. It NEVER makes the show more enjoyable. Let the people who know the script and everything that Wicked stands for in Broadway lovers' hearts do their jobs and perform in the movie!

  83. Jenni says – reply to this


    483

    How about the original cast (idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth) who already had it built into the broadway contracts that they are cast in any Wicked movie. They would have to be bought out for someone else to be cast.

  84. Sandy says – reply to this


    484

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE suggest Brittany Snow…she's PERFECT for Galinda/Glinda!!!

  85. Bee says – reply to this

    Mainly Kristin.
    She is my idol.

  92. jujee says – reply to this

  93. Steph says – reply to this

    Ohhhh, Kristen Bell should def play Glenda!

  94. Alies says – reply to this


    494

    497

    Kristen Chenoweth should definitley do it!!! She's amazing in Pushing Daisies so we already know she can take her on-stage magic and do the same behind the camera!!!

  98. mm says – reply to this


    498

    Anne Hathaway, Kristen Bell?! No way! How about people that can SING! Maybe Mandy could pull it off Emmy Rossum could pull it off. Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith–that would be amazing!!!!!

  99. Jessi says – reply to this
