    Man, I really needed this. We needed a good Broadway musical film adaptation after Cats gave the genre such a bad name.

    We’re already gonna be getting In the Heights next year as well as Steven Spielberg’s reboot of West Side Story. Lin-Manuel Miranda recently tweeted that he has just wrapped up principal photography on his feature directorial debut, which is a film adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s semi-autobiographical musical, Tick, Tick…BOOM!. Although no release date has been announced for that one yet. Same with Dear Evan Hansen, which is currently in production at Universal.

    Jumped on the 100:1 odds, I think this could sneak a BP slot on sugary goodwill. Some of the stuff saying there’s not enough emphasis on the teens sucks though, I don’t think the strength of the stage show was the Broadway performers roles.

    Also James Corden, please retire.

    If this gets into BP, we’ll see West Side Story and a lot of broadway musicals in years to come.

    If Meryl is good in both films, she will get nominated for one as a gesture for both.

    I do think this could enter the BP race, but it needs to be really liked by the GP.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I haven’t seen any of his films, but it seems like most of James Corden’s performances get panned. (Or most of his recent performances, at least).

    How does he keep getting cast with such mediocre/bad reviews? I don’t get it. I know America loves British talent, but from what I’ve watched over the years, most of the Brits who have made it big in the U.S. are arguably quite talented and/or charismatic. (Your mileage may vary, obviously). Corden must have major connections…

    There are tons of gay, musically-talented actors who could have smashed this particular role.

    I thought James Corden was quite good in Begin Again and Into the Woods. Of course, the success he’s had as the host of The Late Late Show has opened a lot of doors for him in the industry. As for gay, musically-talented actors who could’ve been an alternative for the role of Barry Glickman, I know a lot of people think Nathan Lane should’ve been cast, but he has pretty much been taking a break from musicals since leaving the Broadway production of The Addams Family in 2011. Maybe it would’ve made the most sense for Brooks Ashmanskas to be the one performer from the original Broadway cast to reprise their role in the film.

    I think with Corden, you get that underlying smugness and self-satisfaction and phony “Hey look at me, I’m a pudgy Brit but I’m gonna try to sing and dance, I mean what even is life” type of thing. People either love or loathe that.

    I like James, the problem is that they always give him the same character to play and he doesn’t seem to want to try different things.
    I bet his character here is his cat on Cats, but human.

    “The main, and huge, drawback is James Corden. His performance is gross and offensive, the worst gayface in a long, long time. It’s horrifically bad.” – Erik Anderson, Awards Watch

    Corden will get that inevitable serious role which will get him BSA one day.

    Would have loved to see Stanley Tucci and Meryl reunite for this and NOT James Corden..
