01 Sep 2013
Deborah Kelly O'Brien: Adam Lambert! Nurse Teresa Adam Lambert. Nicole Leigh Heyns: Adam Lambert! He already played the role on stage so well that he deserves to go to the screen as well! I also do agree with Darren Criss though...hmm, decisions decisions!
Singer-songwriter Adam Lambert, who finished as runner-up on the eighth season of the popular reality singing competition "American Idol," was a former Fiyero in the national tour of Wicked. He is known for his television and concert appearances, but has yet to take on a prominent film role. Fiyero would mark the perfect film transition for the vocal powerhouse.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
