    Ummmm…how about the OBVIOUS?! Idina Minzel and Kristen Chenowith, of course! Duh.

    i have seen the play twice, am probably to plays away from melting my cd, and could acot out the scene for popular by MYSELF! and i gotta say, idina and kristen have to be the leading ladies. if i have to see mandy moore in a movie based on a broadway musical, i think i'd die in shame.

  8. Nise says – reply to this


    508

    Idina Menzel had better be in it! She is positively amazing and if there's any singing at all, it won't be the same without her!

  9. Cassy says – reply to this


    509

    Yay! My fiance just said yesterday "why can't they make that into a movie?".
    Yes!!

    If they were smart… Idina Menzel… no one does it better. let's face it.

    Are you fucking kidding me? Emmy Rossum as Elphaba?! I just vomited. Seriously, that girl is cute or whatever, but she's a fucking soprano?! Dude, you claim to be such an avid lover of musical theatre, but you don't have a fucking clue. Elphaba MUST be sung by a seriously great BELTER with actual stamina, not a little bird with an ugly mid range. Disgusting.

    get a fucking clue. I'm usually a fan of you, but seriously, Emmy Rossum, Kristen Bell, Mandy Moore, and even Miss Hathaway would absolutely RUIN a perfect show.

    Bullshit Perez. Very disappointing.

    513

    ummm. they should so try to get the original broadway cast, because they originated the characters and can portray them the best!! but I am SUPER EXCITED FOR THIS!!!!

  14. renna says – reply to this


    514

    id love to see the original cast!

  15. austi says – reply to this


    515

    Idina Menzel, for shiz

    who else?

    well, maybe eden espinoza

    definitely someone who has played these roles on stage before. at the very least for elphana and glinda

  16. Kelli says – reply to this


    516

    IDINA only!

  17. Chica says – reply to this


    517

    The odds are that the majority of the people who see this movie are gonna wanna see the OBC playing the lead roles so Kristen and Idina ftw!

    Ana Gasteyer from SNL also played Elphaba (youtube it) and she's not that bad, actually. But yeah, Kristen and Idina.

    None of the actresses you named can really belt out the vocals necessary for these roles.

  18. rells says – reply to this


    518

    AHH i'm SO excited. Idina and Cheno, obv.! They are both amazing. I do agree that the Wizard, Madame Morrible, and Nessarose could be played by well known actors, but leave the leading roles to the professionals, please!

  19. salmo says – reply to this


    519

    Re: Wicke – K Bell has lots of experience on Broadway - you can hear her sing in Reefer Madness… not to mention she f'n rocks!

    520

    I'm surprised Perez didn't suggest team Demi/Selena, haha.

  21. MM says – reply to this


    521

    If not the OBC then I suggest an unkown like Marla Mindelle. Go look her up, she's amazing.

  22. keryn says – reply to this

    yay! i think they should just use the original cast, they're amazing

    534

    No one but Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth should play those roles.

  35. krize says – reply to this


    535

    omg! i am inlove with wicked… i'm not sure if its going to translate well or better on film. im routing for ann hathaway or reese witherspoon, and idina!

  36. wicke says – reply to this


    536

    FIRST: They should hire Chris Columbus to do the film. I think he did an exceptional job when he did the movie version of Rent (which also had Idina in it!)

    SECOND: They should also do what Chris Columbus did and hire as many of the Original Broadway Cast members as possible. The chemistry among all the actors and actresses involved must be right, special, MAGICAL for it to work off stage and onto film format.

  37. chris says – reply to this


    537

    they better cast my girl IDINA.
    she's fierce

  38. Steph says – reply to this


    538

    OMG! I hope Kristen Chenoweth is in it!! She was the original Galinda and she's all into that tv acting now. She would be amazing!

  39. Carre says – reply to this


    539

    I think the original people should play their parts.
    Elphaba should be played by Idina Menzel.
    (No one can play Elphaba like she did)

    I'm really excited though, I've known ever since wicked first hit broadway they'd make a movie out of it.
    I just hope they do it right and it doesnt suck!

    mandy moooore i love her

  41. joey says – reply to this


    541

    i have seen wicked twice and if idina and kristen don't play these roles so soon after the musical premiered i will probably hate the movie

  42. delde says – reply to this


    542

    UMMMM OBVI IDINA AND KRISTIIIN — NO ONE ELSE WILL DO IT JUSTICE.

  43. Lskyw says – reply to this


    543

    I don't think it would be successfull withouth Idina and kristen, but if they had to replace the leads, I would go with Pink as Elphaba, who would be able to belt out the big songs with a raspy, powerfull voice, and I think Emmy Rossum would be surprising as Glinda. The producers would have to put some sort of new spin on it, either by cutting out some of the numbers, and adding more character development and special effects to be an effective stage-to-screen adaptation.

    kristin and idina…duh

    Just like Rent!
    This movies better be awesome

    emma watson

  48. MeZz says – reply to this


    548

    Idina Menzel! She has done it once and she should do it again. She is the original both sides of the puddle.

  49. Jess says – reply to this


    549

    Id say the original actors from the Broadway musical…but if not Im secretly hoping Nikki Blonsky and Zac Efon would play Elphaba & Fiyero :D They have such great chemistry and I think they pull off those roles together perfectly!

  50. TJ says – reply to this


    550

    Umm Idina and Kirstin are perfectly able to play the roles they made. But Mandy Moore as Glinda would be a smart choice, i dident not think so till i thought about it. Britney Spears might even be something to think about… it sounds nuts but… i hope this movie is made, i looooooved this musical!

  51. Kimbe says – reply to this


    551

    It can only be Idina as Elphaba. Reese should do Galinda!

  52. jenbu says – reply to this


    552

    jessica alba = elphaba, arielle kebbel = glinda! my fantasy, perez's nightmare!

    554

    Oh plz plzzzzzzz go with the originals, Broadway´s Krestin Chenoweth and specialy IDINA MENZEL!!!!! plzzzzzz

  55. k says – reply to this


    555

    they BETTER bring the OBC back for this film -_-
    moore and hathaway and whatnot are great on camera but this is too much of a vocally challenging show. honestly, i dont think they could sing it better than the OBC leading ladies.

    idina and cheno ALL THE WAYYY

  56. dgt says – reply to this


    556

    OMFG What about Bette as Mad. Morrible?! PERFECT! I know this is craazy but Lindsay as Elphaba or even Glinda. She is a good actress and she can sing, maybe with vocal lessons. I kinda think and hope that if they dont do the origanial cast that they will use unknowns like casting for tracy in hairspray. I just cant see a huge movie star playing any one, and i dont think i could buy it.

  57. Ami says – reply to this


    557

    oh yayyy!!!! i love love love the play! XD

  58. Jenna says – reply to this

    OMG! OMG! I cannot even begin to explain how IN LOVE with Wicked I am.. I went and FINALLY saw it at Pantages in January but I have been in love with it way before then.

    HELLO!! Perez, no one but IDINA MENZEL can be Elphaba!!! Yay, I am so excited!!!! Yea!!! Kristen Chenowith HAS to be Glinda.. and wouldn't it be awesome if Taye were Fiyero…. You have made my frickin day!!!! =)

  66. Dee says – reply to this


    566

    I so think that the originals should play the leads. Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel. I know that they're kind of old but they have the best voices to sing those great songs. If not them then I could so see Kristin Bell and Emmy Rossum playing the leads.

  67. Court says – reply to this


    567

    AHHH! How exciting! As much as I LOVE the musical, I hope this isn't a musical to movie type of film. I'd love it to be as rich and detailed as the book. How exciting! ^_^

  68. chris says – reply to this


    568

    idina and kristin of course - get them back on screen - they have movie experience!!!! and they can sing….

  70. 570

    ok … so this is FANTASTIC!!!
    but, having seen both shows i.e. NY and London…I must say that Kerry Ellis and Diane Pilkington are just excellent!! … Idina is fab but seriously … for those of you who don't believe me - go onto youtube and listen for yourself!
    If having cast memebers of the show was not an option…how about meryl streep for elphaba??? she has the low course belter of a voice needed! :)

    It has got to be the original cast!
    No fricking hollywood stars who don't know how to sing.
    This is one of my favourite musicals and I just want Idina Menzel as Elphaba. There is no other who can do it like her. And together with Kristin Chenoweth they're unstopable!

  78. 578

    It should really be kirstin and Idina as it was their baby 1st! and u need STRONG voices for this score ( not dubbed ala phantom of the opera ) but Reece witherspoon would be hot stuff for glinda providing her voice is good enough!

  79. joe says – reply to this


    579

    the origional cast!!!!!
    kirstin and idina all the way! they have both been in films before!

  82. megs says – reply to this


    582

    Shouldn't Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth reprise the roles? That would be ideal

    Christina Aguilera as Galinda, and Pink as Efalba(?)

  85. ALex says – reply to this


    585

    IDINA MENZEL!!!!! she is the original and helped it become popular because of her immense talent. Kristin Chenoweth BETTER be in it or it may suck. Powerful voices are a necessity for this film to be more than average.

  86. Sarah says – reply to this


    586

    I would for sure think that they would consider Amy Adams, she would make a great Glinda.

    Britty spears does it again on Reality Bedroom.

  88. lol says – reply to this


    588

    Idina and Kristin are middle-aged, i.e. too old to be playing college students. Furthermore, it is most likely they'll be using stars for the two lead roles or unknowns. It is evident that using stage casts in musical movies does not = a blockbuster hit as opposed to using stars.

  89. willy says – reply to this


    589

    honestly… i dont think anyone could do this show like the original cast. it is so amazing and i love kristin chenoweth and idina menzel!!

  95. Caitl says – reply to this


    595

    …with all due respect, I'd love to see anyone in this film who ISN'T one of the people you listed above. Emmy Rossum was far too weak a singer for "Phantom," she doesn't need to ruin another musical-made-movie. Mandy Moore is a joke. Also, Kristen Bell, as much as I love her, is not cut out for a full singing part, and Anne Hathaway isn't especially talented as a singer. Soooo someone actually talented, preferably someone who actually does musical theater, would be best for me.

  96. Sylvi says – reply to this


    596

    I would so go see this movie!! They need to start right away!!

    emmy rossum is fantastic!

  98. Jessi says – reply to this


    598

    How about the original cast… Idina and Chenoweth. They act and sing. I'll be upset if they pick people who can't actually belt those high notes.

  99. jessi says – reply to this


    599

    The only two people who could ever do the two leads justice are the originals– Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth. no one can even begin to compare to them, and this movie won't be the absolute best it can be without them. Idina would do it cuz she did it for Rent, so hopefully Kristen will too. Chenzel has to reunite sooon!

  100. Maky says – reply to this


    600

    I dont want any of the ones that you mention..is a Musical..
    you can not compare a pop singer with Idina… or imagine Kristen Bell doing Glinda.. she doesnt sing.

    I want Idina and the original cast.
