    Wicked the movie Dream Cast

    So it looks like the hit musical, Wicked, is on its way to becoming a movie. My question is....what would be your dream cast for the movie? Do you want the Original Broadway cast to star, a la Rent? Maybe not castmembers from the Original Broadway Show but actresses/actors that have portrayed the characters in the past or are currently playing those characters? Or would you rather have a younger cast of actresses/actors that can also sing and dance but have not performed in the show before, a la Hairspray or Dreamgirls? Or would you prefer somealmalgamation of the three, with some of the original cast, some current or past castmembers, and some actresses/actors that have not previously performed in the show?

    My basic question is....what is your dream cast for Wicked the movie? I'm rather unimaginative with my choices and I'll probably change my mind thirty times as others offer up their ideas but I'd like to know what you all think?

    Here are mine so far....some of them are quite silly...
    Elphaba-Anne Hathaway
    Galinda/Glinda-Kristen Bell
    Fiyero-Justin Timberlake or JC Chasez
    Boq-Jonathon Taylor Thomas...hehe
    Nessarose-Emmy Rossum....oOoOo Natalie Portman?!?!
    The Wizard-??
    Madame Morrible-??
    Dr. Dillamond-??

    Who would you like to see perform these roles?

    My best score ever!

    I've seen Fiyero played by a black actor (Derrick Williams) and a white actor (Kristoffer Cusick) and I don't think it makes a difference whether the actor is black or white as long as they are good. Fiyero in the Original Broadway Cast was played by Norvert Leo Butz (a white man).

    Who would you suggest to play Fiyero?

    oOoOoOo....Usher? I know he played Billy Flynn in Chicago for a while! That would be really good!!!!!

    Re: Wicked the movie Dream Cast

    Original cast please. It is not fair to compare the possibility of this with the casting of the movie version of Rent - where they were too old to play the parts by the time the movie was made. Saying that, a large portion of the Wicked cast need to be believable high school students so what do I know?!

    Original cast but with kris k as fieyro
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Multiple casts to traverse the Wicked time line?

    Re: Wicked the movie Dream Cast

    First off, the top two should be played by:
    Elphaba-Idina Menzel
    Galinda/Glinda-Kristen Bell

    No questions there.

    As for the rest of the cast, I think:
    Fiyero-James Marsden
    Boq-Daniel Radcliffe or Zac Efron (he did a great job in Hairspray IMO)
    Nessarose-Emmy Rossum and Natalie Portman are REALLY good choices I think
    The Wizard-Dustin Hoffman
    Madame Morrible-Kathy Bates
    Dr. Dillamond-Will Ferrell (what!?!?! His role as Franz Liebkind was the highlight of The Producers)

    I think it would be strange to have Idina and Kristen Bell together, Kristen is sooo much younger. When I think of Will Ferrell playing Dr. Dillamond the picture of him in Zoolander keeps popping into my head! hehe!!

    On Fiyero....


    black of white doesn't matter because in the book, he was blue....Why not be true to the story, make Boq a REAL munchkin, and paint Fiyero blue with the diamonds on his face and spine?

    Re: Wicked the movie Dream Cast

    I have no idea who I would want to play these characters... I mean I have yet to see the actual musical yet so it makes it a bit tough... As for the book I have read that and I loved it... I bet casting will do a good job with this one just because of the popularity and the obsession that surrounds it...

    It would be kinda' creepy to daydream about a blue male lead though... Plus if Elphie and blue Fiyero had babies would that mean they're turquiose? (Okay the coffee has yet to set in, can you tell?)

    Sorry, you know what ... I had a brain-fart last night. I didn't mean Kristen Bell.

    I meant Kristin Chenoweth should play Glinda.
