West Side Story Casting Pt 2: "When you're a Jet,you're a Jet all the way"

If you missed part 1,The Sharks,that's here.

With the casting of Steven Spielberg's remake ofWest Side Storycomplete,and planning to shoot this very summer,let's meet the Jets.We've done the research to familiarize you with the new cast which is thankfully extremely heavy with very talented dancers and singers so we hope Steven Spielberg has a heretofore unknown gift for filming big dance heavy musical numbers! Links go to their instagram pages if we could find them...

PRINCIPALS


Ansel Elgort(Tony)
The 25 year old movie star has been threatening to do a movie musical for awhile now (he was once attached to a Hans Christian Anderson biopic that seems to have been trapped in development hell) and is finally getting around to it withWest Side Story.Major credits include leading roles inThe Fault in Our Stars,Billionaire Boys Club,Baby Driver,and the forthcoming dramaThe Goldfinch.

What's Next for the Spotlight Cast?

Manuelhere talking about theSpotlightcast.If the SAG voting crowd can see beyondtheir cooky nominations,they might yet crown a handsome roster of winners.That's what we hope happens,at least in theBest Ensemble categorywhich,besides being quite testosterone heavy,doesn't really feel reflective of the "best"of ensemble work that we saw this past year.Should the Tom McCarthy cast prevail though,we'll at least know the Actors went to the right film and its talented cast.

But what are the actors behind the Boston Globe reporters up to next?Let's find outafter the jump...

"Something Rotten"and/in Adapting "Doctor Zhivago"

Does the classic film / novel translate well to the stage?Stage Door,our theater review series,is in hyperdrive,it's difficult to keep up what with shows opening left and right.The Tonys,like the Oscars,亚博主页have a glut problem right before the eligibility deadline.Nominations are announced this coming Tuesday.

The Twin Perils of Snark & Earnestness
If you want to be a massive musical comedy hit,the current fever is to be slightly self-deprecating about the thing that you are.Something Rotten,which is expected to do well at the Tonys and already a hit,is a new musical comedy that doubles as an anachronistic in-on-the-joke Shakespeare comedy and a spoof of Broadway song & dance.The actual plot centers around a poor playwright (Tony-winner Brian d'Arcy James) with the surname of "Bottom"-- and yes,that leads to exactly the crass jokes you might expect it does -- who struggles in obscurity while his contemporary William Shakespeare (Tony-winner Christian Borle fromSmashdoing a full Tim Curry) is treated like a rock star.
