Could Lea Michele Be Reprising Her Role As Wendla In The Spring Awakening Movie?

Hear that? That's the sound of every Lea Michele die-hard fan on the planet holding their breath and waiting to hear the answer to the question. Exhale friends, because the answer is …

Maybe.

When word got around that Spring Awakening was being made into a movie, the obvious choices for the leads were the kids who made the musical famous on Broadway, namely Lea and her bestie friend Jonathan Groff. While The Groff's name isn't being thrown around in casting discussions (so we know), director McG spilled at the premiere of This Means War last night that Princess Lea has been approached for the part of Wendla … and she's considering it! According to McG:

"We're talking to Lea Michele because she made the role of Wendla famous and we'll see if that pans out and works with the timing of her schedule on [Glee]. I love Lea; we've talked about it. When I first got turned onto the show she was in it so it's her voice that echoes in my heart. I really think she's wonderful and we'll see where it takes us."

Don't take this the wrong way G, but we're not onboard with this … UNLESS you get The Groff.

Those two are a package deal. You cannot have one in the show without the other. Hell, they both started and ended in the Broadway production at the same time. They couldn't bare to see one of them continue on without the other and neither could we. So, either sign them both or don't bother. For devoted fans, it just won't be the same without them together, so you might as well start fresh.

With that said, God do we hope they do it! We never got to see the stage production and have always wanted to. Youtube doesn't really do them justice!

    Perez, how could you not have seen Spring Awakening?! I have seen it several times with the original and later cast and it was always amazing! If it's on broadway again, you have to see it!

    That being said, I would love to see Lea in the movie whether or not Jonathon Groff is also in it. He was great, obviously, but it would also be interesting to see her star in it with someone new….how about Zac Efron?! Darren Criss maybe?

    I've been a huge fan of Spring Awakening and that's what turned me on to Glee. Anyone who likes Glee would also probably like Spring Awakening. Lea plays a very different part than she does in Glee, but she is a great dramatic actress and she does a great live performance. I don't know if it would translate as well on film because it was so powerful live, but I think it is still a good idea!
