'Wicked' Movie Casting Poll - Vote for Your Glinda & Elphaba!

The Wicked movie is exactly two years away from hitting theaters and we want to know who you think should be cast in the roles of Glinda and Elphaba!

Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel originated the roles in the Broadway production back in 2003, but now that they are both in their 40s, they’ve probably missed their chance at playing college-aged girls on screen. This is something they’ve both admitted and Kristin has even suggested herself for the role of Madame Morrible!

Kristin has voiced her dream casts for two separate age groups. If they are going for actresses in their early 30s, she would chose Beth Behrs as Glinda and Lea Michele as Elphaba. If they are going for early 20s, she would pick her mini-me Dove Cameron as Glinda and Ariana Grande as Elphaba.

We’ve added some more possible choices for each role and you can even write in your own answer if we didn’t include your favorite actress. Voting will end at the end of 2017, exactly at 11:59pm EST on December 31.

The Wicked movie will be hitting theaters on December 20, 2019 and we’re already counting down the days. Until then, you can see the musical on Broadway and in productions around the world!

Texas Boy Sings 'Let It Go' with Idina Menzel, Blows Her Away (Video)

Idina Menzel invites kids on stage to sing “Let It Go” from Frozen at all of her concerts and she wasn’t expecting to be wowed by a young boy at her recent show in Texas.

The little boy, named Luke, appeared to be the only boy on stage and Idina went up to him and asked if he even knew what song it was.

“’Let It Go,’ obviously!” he replied. “What kind of question is that?”

When Idina said that some boys tell her they like the song from Trolls (aka Justin Timberlake‘s “Can’t Stop the Feeling”) better, he said, “Heck to the no! I’m offended.”

Idina then had Luke sing the chorus for “Let It Go” and he was so good that she had him sing it again, and he was even better the second time. The video below was provided to The Advocate by photographer Lara Bierner.
