Playbill Poll: Who Should Star as Fiyero in a Film Adaptation of Wicked? Readers Respond
01 Sep 2013
As the long-running hit musical Wicked approaches its tenth anniversary on Broadway, Playbill.com begins to dream cast a possible film adaptation, and we wondered: Who would you like to see play Fiyero on screen?
Playbill.com polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter asking them to share their choices for the lead role of Fiyero. Their choices ranges from previous cast members and Broadway stars to Hollywood actors.
Here are some reader responses followed by our own commentary.
Tom Quicksell: Aaron Tveit Laura Beth Dailey: Aaron Tveit :o) Ale Valdemar: Tveit for Fiyero!<3 Darren Criss for Boq maybe Tylar Jennings Holloway: AARON FREAKING TVEIT. IF THAT MAN IS NOT IN THAT MOVIE IM GONNA BE SO MAD Katy Lynn Patterson: AARON TVEIT!!! Why is this even a question!? Daniel Radcliffe as Boq! @andykhodak: @playbill @WICKED_Musical @aarontveitnet Aaron Tveit, he was one of the best Fiyeros on Broadway, and the camera loves him as well!
Aaron Tveit, who originated roles on Broadway in Next to Normal and Catch Me If You Can, was the most popular choice amongst our readers for the role of Fiyero. Tveit, who also starred in Hairspray, is no stranger to the role, having played Fiyero in the Broadway production of Wicked in 2008. The actor, who was recently seen on screen in the film adaptation of Les Misérables, also played a solo concert engagement at 54 Below, which sold out in less than five minutes.
