    Before everyone attacks, I know a Hamilton movie is years out (but I do think it will happen) and I know the cast I suggested will probably be too old by the time it goes into development, but I just think this is a fun conversation and I wanted to here people’s hypothetical suggestions for casting the characters, and I thought why not do it here. Here is my list:

    Aaron Burr- Donald Glover(!!!)

    Hamilton- unknown/Oscar Isaac

    Eliza- Janelle Monae / Lupita Nyong’o

    Angelica- Naya Rivera/ Zendaya

    George Washington- John Legend/ Taye Diggs/ Jamie Foxx

    John Laurens/Philip- Chance the Rapper

    Lafayette/Jefferson- also Donald Glover/  Titus Burgess / Bruno Mars? (Struggled here)

    Mulligan/Madison- O’Shea Jackson Jr. / J. Cole

    King George- Nathan Lane/Will Ferrel

    Peggy/Maria- Ariana Grande

    Amanda Spears actually started a thread on this last year.

    If a film adaptation of Hamilton were to happen sometime soon, these would be my casting choices…

    Alexander Hamilton: Riz Ahmed
    Aaron Burr: Jamie Foxx
    Eliza Schuyler Hamilton: Janelle Monáe
    Angelica Schuyler: Beyoncé
    Marquis de Lafayette: Common
    Thomas Jefferson: Donald Glover

    By the way, there is this YouTube channel titled Working with Lemons, they’ve made several videos where they imagined musicals in real life. Here are the ones they’ve made using songs from Hamilton

    Aaron Burr, Sir/My Shot

    The Schuyler Sisters

    You’ll Be Back
