However, Miz Willis has since revealed that she knows EXACTLY why she didn't get the part — because she bombed her audition.
The Dancing With The Stars champ shared:
On Thursday, Carnegie Hall announced that Skylar Astin will be returning to his musical theatre roots as he's slated to star as Tony in West Side Story at the Knockdown Center in Queens, NY.
The show is schedule to run next year on March 4-6. AH-Mazing!
The 28-year-old may be best known for as the adorable Treblemaker in the Pitch Perfect franchise, but initially he made his Broadway debut back in 2006 as a part of the original cast of Spring Awakening — alongside fellow A-lister Lea Michele!
And it seems the Ground Floor actor is just as excited as we are for his upcoming role as he took to Twitter and shared:

The New York native will be joined in the classic show by the Great White Way veteran, Bianca Marroquín as Anita and 18-year-old newcomer, Morgan Hernandez as Skylar's romantic lead Maria. Talk about being a Broadway baby!
Other roles are still to be announced. We'll certainly be looking forward to this production.
Do U have any favorites you hope to fill out the rest of the cast list?!

This sure ain't Broadway!
James Corden LOVES him some Broadway musicals, which is exactly why he teamed up with Nathan Lane and Rachel Bloom to give us some of his own — well almost his own.
The late night host borrowed ideas from some popular movies like The Terminator, The Exorcist, and Se7en, to give us a little taste of what each one would be like as a musical!
Let's be real, who doesn't want to hear a song about "what's in the box?!" LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious sketch (below) and let us know what other movies you think would make great inappropriate musicals!
Keira Knightley is having a rough start to her broadway career!
Last week, the Everest star's onstage debut as the lead in Helen Edmundson's play Thérèse Raquin was rudely interrupted by a crazy fan yelling nonsensical things from the audience!
Now, it looks like she really can't catch a break! According to reports, Knightley had to cancel Wednesday's performance due to a minor injury!
Not only did the actress have to skip out on the performance, but the entire show was cancelled as well!
It's not clear how the 30-year-old got hurt, but the Roundabout Theatre Company says that Knightley is expected to return for Thursday night's performance!
Now, that's a show must go on mentality! We hope the actress doesn't have to deal with any more unplanned drama when she returns to the stage!

Well, this is a little unsettling!
Keira Knightley was all set to lift the curtain on her Broadway debut Thursday night, playing the main character in Helen Edmundson's play Thérèse Raquin, when something strange happened.
Just minutes after the play began, the show was disrupted by a man yelling bizarre and scary things at Keira from a balcony on the second deck, causing the play to be stopped after several minutes and leaving the audience visibly confused.
According to sources, the man went a little overboard from the very beginning:
Fox's Grease: Live just tapped another Broadway Cinderella — Carly Rae Jepsen!
On Wednesday, it was announced that the Call Me Maybe singer will be playing the role of Frenchy (AKA the beauty school dropout) in the popular musical! AH-Mazing!
And it seems the starlet is just as excited as we are for her addition to the cast as she took to Instagram to share her BIG news!
