^ TVAW is being unfriendly and intolerant. Sarcasm or not, that is not clear to me. Wouldn't it be better if we all just were a bit nicer? :)

So, xxstagekiss, what's your message exactly? I don't really get it :$ Broadway players should or should not star in a Wicked movie?

I was saying that I'd never heard somebody say that they would prefer somebody who wasn't Broadway to play the leading role(s) in a musical movie; normally it's us complaining when it's somebody with no legitimate credibility getting cast in a role, and there are people out there that prefer that? I'd honestly never heard that opinion before, so I was just asking if anybody else had heard and/or supported such a belief, because, whether it came from imdb or not, it's still an opinion. Whatevs, sorry if that was unclear, haha.

Btw, thanks for the love, Jordan. <3

Why?

Nearly everything that comes out of her mouth is sarcasm... like... it's so blatently clear.

I laughed hysterically at everything she said.


Eh, I see it differently. I think it's just smugness, personally. And btw, no one messes with my Lex. That's all I'm saying.

Well, If they want someone who is completely 'movies'.
Penelope Cruz...she would make a brilliant Elphaba
Judie Dench for Morrible....although our friends over at IMDB may not want her as she is a successful & well known stage actress as well.

:roll:

P.S TVAW for the win

Hahahahaha! I was waiting for Sal to put her two cents in!

But here are the facts: A big movie studio will not cast a broadway actress as a headlining lead in a movie musical who is un-known to the general public. Look at Rent. I think they learned their lesson. They still need to pack those seats. And that's the bottom line.

I never understood the assumption that just because an actor is successful in one genre means they're inherently untalented in a related one.

It's IMDB. Being incredulous over something posted at IMDB is like freaking out that a baby pooped in a diaper.


Some people are relatively new here. What you just said ("being incredulous ... a diaper"), well I did not know that since I'm pretty new. Be tolerant, please, no-one's supposed to know everything in the whole world. You could've just said that in a calm way in the first place.


What I said had nothing to do with anyone being new at mnet. This would make sense if one was new to the internet in general...

Doesn't mean you can't be a little nicer.

One thing you have to learn early on. On these boards, some people aren't going to baby you. Some people will go out of their way to be nice and others will tell you like it is with no sugar coating. TVAW and Salome have their opinions and they will not fold. And I, for one, respect them for that. And, yes, they can get catty. So what? Whining about it aint ganna do much good, I will tell you that.
