Julianne Hough & Vanessa Hudgens To Star In Fox’s ‘Grease: Live’ In 2016
by Nellie Andreeva January 17, 2015 10:11am
Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) will star in Grease: Live (working title), Fox’s upcoming live production of the popular musical, which has been scheduled for Jan. 31 2016. Hough will play the angelic “Sandy” – Rydell High’s most talked-about newcomer – and Hudgens as iconic bad girl “Rizzo.”
Marc Platt has come on board to executive produce the musical, produced by Paramount Television.January 17, 2015 at 8:51 pm #340506
Why?! Did these people see Rock of Ages?! Julianne is not a great singer just a great dancer.January 17, 2015 at 9:07 pm #340507
Much like the original film, this production will rise or fall based on the actor playing Danny. This may be the first of these ‘live’ events I have any interest in, but they will need to hook me with that casting.January 18, 2015 at 1:52 am #340508
I’d love to see Finn Wittrock play Danny to shed the American Horror Story creepinessJanuary 18, 2015 at 8:08 am #340509
When I think of Sandy, I think of Olivia Newton John and Laura Osnes because they had the singing and the sweetness. Julianne is kinda the same but with a little more of the edge. I’m down with this choice. Hudgens……..yeah. Naya Rivera would have been better.January 18, 2015 at 12:03 pm #340510
This casting all seems wrong… wrong.January 18, 2015 at 9:03 pm #340511
I hope Darren Criss is Danny. That’s the only possible way this will even workJanuary 20, 2015 at 10:20 am #340512
How about Megan Hilty for the role of Frenchie?
I honestly can’t think of anybody for the role of Kinnecky.July 9, 2015 at 6:54 pm #340513
Aaron Tveit is Danny! (You may know him from the movie version of Les Miserables, USA’s Graceland, and the broadway show Catch Me if You Can and Next to Normal. This is awesome casting news and will make this 100000000 times better than what it was before. Tveit has one of the best vocal chops of his generation of theater actors and will be charming as hell in the role.July 9, 2015 at 7:09 pm #340514

Really?! Official? Now I’m interested in this… and I don’t even like Grease.
At the same time is bad news for the show, because Hough will not be nearly as good as him. For sure. Poor lame girl.July 10, 2015 at 6:06 am #340516
Kinda psycjed for this now. Casting department nailed the Kenickie and Danny castings.July 10, 2015 at 6:50 am #340517
I think Keke Palmer was also cast as MartyJuly 10, 2015 at 6:52 am #340518
Aaron Tveit is way too good for this nonsense.
