Nicole Scherzinger Signs On To Rent!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesNicole ScherzingerVanessa HudgensNeil Patrick HarrisPussycat DollsReality TV


Well this makes us feel slightly better about this whole debacle!

Pussycat Doll and Dancing With The Stars winner Nicole Scherzinger has signed on to portray Maureen in the El Lay production of Rent this summer!

Director Neil Patrick Harris says:

“Nicole had a wonderful audition - she was well prepared, sang beautifully, and had us all laughing. If only she was somewhat attractive and didn’t have two left feet… I’m very excited to have finally finished the casting process, and look forward to rolling up my sleeves and start rehearsing.”

Hopefully her awesome can balance out some of the FUG that WhatsHerFace is bringing to the stage!

    All the best to you!

    on her worst day that "FUG whatsherface" looks better than this broad….

  3. 3

    I'm sure he was joking about the two left feet! But who else is in the production? I'd like to see this. Lot of people got their start from RENT.

  4. 4

    Isn't that the character that Idina Menzel originated from the original RENT cast? I wonder who her lesbian lover is. She'll have some major makeout sessions.

  5. 5

    I don't see her as Maureen.

  6. 6

    Perfect. An awful woman in an awful role in an awful show.
    Go see 'La Boheme' so you can see everything 'Rent' wants to be but never, ever will.
    Theatre for the Long Island set - how bourgeois.

    Neil Patrick Harris is a fucking liar! JK- I love Dougie.

    did i misread that statement given by neil patrick harris? "if only she was attractive..?" she is beautiful! i know tons of guys who would give their right nut to have a night with her.

  11. 11

    Vanessa grew up doing musical theater, Perez. Neil knows what he's doing

  12. 12

    "Lets get some famous twats in the cast so it doesnt totally bomb!"

    Poor skylar astin, The only talented one of the cast!

  13. 13

    Vanessa will be amazing, grow up dick.

  14. 14

    Love Nicole I am soooo happy she won Dancing!

  15. 15

    you seriously need to get over this whole jealousy thing you have with Vanessa Hudgens, just because she's beautiful, talented and managed to get famous with being a gossiping, life ruining bitch like you, doesn't make her 'FUG'.

    Re: pinktoenails – Cause shes not a man….Then again…

  17. 17

    I guess they let anyone join Broadway shows nowadays.

  18. 18

    LOL her career is dead and it serves her right bor being such a bitch to the other ORIGINAL dolls.
    hasbeen career step one (dancing with the stars), step 2 (Chicago/Rent), step 3 (sex tape)….
    hate that stuck up bitch….

    ugh, it was ALWAYS a bad idea when famous people starred in rent at the Nederlander. This bitch should NOT have gotten the role of Maureen.
    Comparison: Idina Menzel - Nicole

    really?!?!?! any similarities!?!?! give me a break. thank god this is staying in la and not poisoning the new york stages!!!!!

  20. 20

    NPH needs to be fired NOW. V-Hud and this chick?! Oh, no!

  21. 21

    she's so not maureen…mimi maybe…but not maureen.

  22. 22

    Nicole had a wonderful audition - she was well prepared, sang beautifully, and had us all laughing. If only she was somewhat attractive and didn’t have two left feet… I’m very excited to have finally finished the casting process, and look forward to rolling up my sleeves and start rehearsing.”

    that could be read the wrong way… ! omg

  23. 23

    she's gorgeous.
    somehow i don't see her singing beautifully.

  24. 24

    she is very unattractive.

  25. 25

    I'm iffy. It's weird, because aside from her and Vanessa, I'm loving the casting. Telly Leung as Angel is an amazing choice (I've seen him play the role several times and he's INCREDIBLE and adorable) and I'm SO excited about Aaron Tveit as Roger, which is weird because I am incredibly picky when it comes to Roger and have only ever loved Adam Pascal in the role. But this choice seems…odd to me. Maureen is one of my favourite roles, one that I would love to play some day, so I guess I'm picky about that one, too. We'll see.

    Re: bufffyyy333 – Tracie Thoms will be playing Joanne. So prepare for some Tracie/Nicole action.

    The rest of the cast, since people don't seem to know:
    Mark: Skylar Astin
    Roger: Aaron Tveit
    Collins: Wayne Brady
    Mimi: Vanessa, obviously.
    Joanne: Tracie Thoms
    Angel: Telly Leung
    Benny: Collins Pennie
    Seasons of Love Soloist: Gwen Stewart

    i loved rent i saw it three times when it was on broadway once w/ the original cast…she's obviously talented she can sing and dance really well. but acting and performing are not mutually exclusive, i dont think she can pull off the character Maureen. NO ONE can compare to Idina Menzel, but they definatly could have gone w/ someone who has more conviction. does nicole even have acting experience? can she pull off acting as a bi-sexual leaning towards lesbian? if anything she should have been Meme.

    hahha nicole is going to make sure she is the most noticed and make vanessa's life a living hell.if i was vaness and heard about this i'd be rolling my eyes and saying," fuck no!!!! why me!!"

  30. 30

    Re: bring it – simple put very true. agreed completely

  31. 31

    this is going to be GREAT!!! don't mess it up vanessa!

  32. 32

    Perez…the fact that you think that Nicole Scherzinger has MERIT in acting on STAGE let alone on television shows just how pathetic you are.

    At least hudgens has actual EXPERIENCE compared to someone who is known more for her physicality rather than talent. The fact that you think she is "awesome" makes you a pathetic excuse for an "entertainer" and human being.

    Please Perez, go kill yourself.

  33. 33

    i got to know her from DWTS and really liked her. She comes from humble people and has worked hard for everthing. happy for her.

  34. 34

    I feel sorry for Vanessa Hudgens every interview it seems like they always have to ask about what Zac is doing, or the water damage that was done, and not only that other celebrities ask her if Zac can star in their shows (Cougar Town) so she shot herself naked who hasn't? I remember the day of Polaroids and being her age and having let a boyfriend do that thinking it would stay between us and all his friends and then some saw it and then Dane Cook blasting her on it like he's snow white clean. So, shes dating Zac and Perez wants him seems like Zacs only focused on hisself. Vanessa has been doing this since she was 6 years old she is no novice, and I think this is a wise step for her and she needs to do more movies some with music and some without the more she does maybe more people will see her talent her actual album some songs are very powerful and good aside from the pop bubble gum songs. Vanessa needs to be acknowledged for herself she is also representing a minority mix of asian, filipino, spanish, and american. I feel bad for the girl the focus should be more on her and less on who she is dating. They have lasted longer then most do. Nicole will out shine her on the looks alone but I have a feeling Vanessa will out sing her and she is still a very beauitful young lady no matter how anyone feels about her.

    Re: SyberMarshall – well put! I'll say amen to that…
