I'm not a huge fan of the show either, but if they find a great way to break the fourth wall, it'll be a good movie! Rumors says that Russell Brand would play Lonny. I can see that happening!

I hope they'll continue with their idea of casting an unknown as Drew. Constantine Maroulis cried in the media because he wants the role and I can understand, but he already did a lot for the show and is a little too old for Drew's 21 years old.

There's still great roles to cast (Regina, Hertz, Fran & the whole Arsenal band) so I'll wait before making a judgement on the cast, but Tom Cruise? Come on....

I can abide by that news. It's the Cruise curse that really upsets me.

I gotta admit, I didn't like the musical so I doubt I'll like the movie!

I thought the musical was spot on, great vocal most of the time from the leading players, a real feel good factor musical with plenty of audience participation. Lets hope they get the film script right, and of course the right actors for the leading parts.
