It's finally happening! The first casting news for the Wicked movie is starting to buzz in our ears, and it's… kind of a mixed bag!
It looks like Lea Michele is the frontrunner for the role of Elphaba.
Being a dead ringer for the role's originator Idina Menzel (heck, she even played her daughter on Glee) makes Lea an obvious choice. We've even heard her knock Defying Gravity out of the park already!
But Harry Styles? According to an inside source, the One Direction star is the top contender to play Elphaba's love interest Fiyero? The source says:
Did the temperature just rise in Austin, Texas???
Sure feels like it after Zac Efron made his appearance at the premiere of Neighbors at SXSW!
The still healthy and hot actor showed up on the red carpet alongside Seth Rogen and Dave Franco, but he could've been next to a three-headed Big Foot and we would've only noticed our fave cutie!
But more importantly than how delish and dashing he looks, he's also feeling great. We couldn't be happier to hear he's in a happy place as he told the audience:
"I've been blessed to have the opportunities I've had. It couldn't have happened better. I'm stoked."
We're stoked too!
After a rough last year, Zac has clearly bounced back with his priorities in the right place.
Although, we're still pretty sure the right place for Zac is on our arm!!

PLEASE, awards show gods, PLEASE let Zac Efron win!
In case you missed it, the 26-year-old actor has been nominated for the Best Shirtless Performance at this year’s MTV Movie Awards.
He’s facing some steep competition, like Chris Hemsworth, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston, and Sam Claflin, but Zefron has just upped the ante!
The That Awkward Moment star tweeted
Wow! Zac Efron, we love your choice for a date to the 86th Academy Awards! (Though, in all honesty, it still hurts that you didn't give us a call…)
No, he didn’t bring some stunning supermodel or his momma (although how adorable would that have been!?) Nope, Zac brought along his sober coach to the Oscars!
Proof that Z is taking his sobriety serious!
The 26-year-old has had two stints in rehab already and he doesn’t want to make it a third! So the actor, who has now gone eight months without any booze or drugs, had his sobriety coach by his side the entire night to watch his every move!
A source reveals:
WHAT A SHOW!
The Oscars were AH-MAZING!
It all started with Jennifer Lawrence's tumble on the red carpet (above) and only got more HIGHlarious from there!
Ellen DeGeneres absolutely killed it with all her jokes AND turned the show into a pizza party for everyone!!
There were so many memorable moments from this year's ceremony that there's no way we could mention them all…
Good thing we don't have to!
Prepare to bask in GIFfy goodness…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Well, everyone else can go home because Zac Efron just won the Oscars!!
The super-stud seriously stopped time for us when he stepped onto the red carpet!!
We absolutely ADORE the stunning suit our Zefy-poo is rocking — it really shows off his fabulous
figure fists and even subtlety hints at the nine-inch, uhhh, academy award hanging out in his britches!
Zac sadly wasn't nominated for anything tonight, but we think they should give him an award for Best Abs anyway!
#ThatAwkwardMoment when we want him inside of us, LOLz!!!
