Mark Robinson:  Hunter Parrish! Love HIM! Boy, can sing it and if likeable even when his character's actions are not - which is a lot of who and what Pippin is - likeable in spite of being a whiner.

Juhstin Rihmihres:  I think box office wise it would be smart to use Hunter Parrish and since he was in Spring Awakening and Godspell, so he has Broadway respect too.

Parrish made his Broadway debut in 2008 as Melchior Gabor in Spring Awakening and remained in the role until the show's closing in 2009.  He starred in the 2011 Broadway revival of Godspell and left the cast in 2012 to film the final season of the Showtime original series "Weeds,"  in which he starred as Silas, the troubled son to stay-at-home mother turned drug dealer.
