Weird thought, but I always thought that Wayne Brady would be really good. Has anyone else ever thought this?

Strictly going off this poll, I'm going to have to go with....Wayne Brady.

Seriously though, Matthew Morrison could do it.

I've never thought about him before, but Matthew Morrison would be excellent.

But who else could be a good enough Marian to his Harold except for Cheno reprising her role?

Actually, now that I think about it, you could cast most of the actors who play the adults on Glee and almost fill all the principals for The Music Man.
For example:
Matthew Morrison as Harold Hill
Kristen Chenoweth as Marian Paroo, again
Neil Patrick Harris as Marcellus Washburn (him singing Shipoopi would be hilarious yet ironic due to his gayness)
Jane Lynch as Mrs. Paroo (She's good at that sort of character)
Gwyneth Paltrow as Eulalie McKechnie Shinn (Eulalie's more an acting role than a singing role and Gwyneth's more an actress than a singer)
Cheyenne Jackson as Mayor Shinn (I've never heard him sing on Glee but I know he can)

Marcellus - Ernie Sabella
Mrs. Paroo - Debra Monk (again)
