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!
