A Grease LIVE Special Event Is Coming To Fox In 2015! But WHO Will Play Sandy & Danny? Find Out The Ones That We Want HERE!

grease live coming

This is SUCH exciting news!!

Looks like FOX is following in NBC's footsteps and bringing a live musical to viewers TV screens in 2015 a la the Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood!

So, OF COURSE, they decided upon Grease as the musical, because DUH!

FOX released a statement saying:

"From Broadway to film, and across generations, Grease is one of the most beloved musical stories ever told – and we can’t wait to bring it to our air in a spectacular live event. Its iconic characters and addictive songs make it the perfect fit for FOX, and we’re going to give it the kind of star power and production quality to make every Sandy, Danny, Rizzo and Kenickie out there want to get up and sing along."

So, what exactly do they mean by "star power," AKA WHO WILL PLAY DANNY AND SANDY??!

We might not know any casting news right now, we've definitely got some suggestions on who they SHOULD cast for the roles!

Ch-ch-check out our Perezicious picks…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Taylor Swift & James Maslow would be picture perfect for the job!

Dianna Agron & Darren Criss are THE perfect Gleeks for the roles!

For a more hip-hop take on Grease they could cast Drake & Rihanna as the leads!

Chord Overstreet & Brie Larson would be AH-MAZE! They've both got the right pipes for the roles!

Austin Mahone & Ariana Grande have the chops to be the perfect teen queen & king for this!

AnnaSophia Robb & Zac Efron could do the roles justice! Plus Zefron would be returning to his High School Musical roots! Definitely a win!

….but what about the other roles?!?

Well, for Frenchie, we think the perfect choice lies in either Lena Dunham or Iggy Azalea! They'd both be brilliant!

And what about 'mean girl' Rizzo? Gotta be Rita Ora or Naya Rivera, duh! They could definitely perfect some terrifying glares!

Lastly, there's Kenickie, but WHO would be the perfect choice? Well, we think Cody Simpson's the BEST pick… though they COULD go with Justin Bieber! He's certainly got the attitude for it!

We can't WAIT to see who they'll eventually cast!!!

    I don't think ANYONE today has the talent to pull this off as well as the original

    Most of your selections are too old. They are supposed to be teens. Ariana and Austin are the only ones that could pass for teens.

    Re: rosebud99 – The younger you go, the less talent you will find. If you want it to be good, the actors will have to be over 25.

    Re: meghan – I agree, loved that movie when it came it as I grew up during that era and the music is just terrific. Hey does anyone remember A&W Rootbeer? In Socal it was the place to go after a date (no onions of course).

    Re: MewLover34 – Olivia Newton John and John Travolta were not teens. They were far from it.
