    Whoever they cast just needs to be in their 20s. And I agree, I think a no-name is the way to go. People are going to see the movie regardless. Better to cast on talent than on a name that is going to be divisive, no matter who it is.

    Oh and if they could do all of Willemijn’s riffs, that’d be great :lol:

    Zac Efron is perfect for Fiyero and Anna Kendrick would be a great Nessa.

    Angela Lansbury should be Madame Morrible, and to make that happen they should really hurry up and make this movie since she's 93!

    A documentary? Are you sure you don't mean Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Because there was an episode in the newest season that has that EXACT same plot you just described.

    Naw. I think you're just trying to deflect because you got called out haha. It's ok.

    Anyways, I'll believe Wicked is actually happening whenever I see the filming has actually commenced. They've pushed back the date for this so many times. And honestly, part of me would just rather see the book be adapted. But I'm sure that wouldn't make nearly as much money since most audiences are going to see it for the music.

    How is it possible to mistake Kimmy Schmidt and flippin' Titus Andromedon as a documentary?!?! :lmao:

    I may dumb, but I'm not that dumb!

    Kimmy Schmidt is a bit of a joke around here because of two episodes featuring Universal Studios.
    I almost posted that I heard a rumor that Legends of Greemulax was going to go into KidZone the night it aired also.:)

    I stand mostly by my previous casting except for the three leads...which I'm gonna go even more unconventional...

    My casting for Wicked would be:
    Galinda aka Glinda: Allie Mauzey, Billie Lourd (yes Carrie Fisher's daughter), Ariana Grande (was on broadway as a child)
    Elphaba: Cynthia Erivo, Zendaya, Lady Gaga
    Fiyero: Aaron Trevit, Do Kyungsoo, or Leslie Odom Jr
    Doctor Dillarmond: Idris Elba, Ken Watanabe, Titus Burgess
    The Wizard: Christoph Waltz; Hugh Jackman, John Leguizamo
    Madame Morrible: Uzo Aduba, Bernadette Peters, Bette Midler, or Lea Salonge
    Nessarose: Hailee Steinfield/ Jenna Ushkowitz/Anna Kendrick/actress who actually is in a wheelchair
    Boq: Tom Holland, Jamie Bell, Steve Yuen

    Is it too easy to want Dove Cameron as Glinda? She fits almost too perfectly. The look, the voice, the fan base she brings, she’s done broadway, her having played Kristen’s chenowth’s daughter in TWO different musicals... It’s scary accurate (also Anna Kendrick as Nessa?)

    These are casting preferences that many people have for the role but it’s very easy to answer your question. I believe the role of Glinda should be played by someone a little more complex and ambiguous. I’d be fine if the girl they cast did look like Dove. I just done want Dove. Anna Kendrick is great for the role but I don’t think the studios have much interest with her in the role.
