Re: Wicked The Movie - Dream Cast
Definitely going to look Simon Bird up. Love the idea of Helena Bonham Carter as Morrible. After seeing her as Bellatrix Lestrange I think she could easily make Morrible amazing. If Johnny Depp and Freeman->
Nice. If it were me I would cast Morgan Freeman as the Wizard, but not as my first choice.
I think Amy would make a wonderful G(a)linda! She has the acting ability. I am unsure of how good her soprano is, because we seldom got to hear her upper register in Enchanted.
Lea Michele could really do wonders to the part of Elphaba vocally, however she would really need to work on her acting to really do the character justice.
I can also see Gere playing the Wizard. And playing him well.
