The movie career opportunities just keep popping up for Harry Styles (if the rumors are true, anyway). According to The Sun (via Broadway.com), the youngest member of One Direction is eyeing the upcoming stage-to-film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, Wicked, and the movie’s executives are eyeing him right back.
“He’s top of the Wicked team’s wish list to play the romantic lead role of Fiyero. Moviemakers see him as a new Zac Efron and think he would be a perfect casting for a movie musical.”
Buzz is also swirling that Glee star/Broadway alum Lea Michele may be in the running, too. Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz says, “Lea Michele is fantastic and it’d be silly to say she wouldn’t be under consideration [for the role of Elphaba].” Visit our friends at Crushable for some Wicked dream castings!
This news comes only weeks after Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein offered the curly-haired cutie a blossoming career in the movie business… under one teensy condition, “Harry Styles will definitely be a movie star if he wants to… First he’s got to date all three of my daughters. They all think he is extremely handsome. Once that’s sorted, he can be in any film he wants.”
Do you think Harry would make for a good actor? Or should he stick to 1D? Tell us your thoughts in the comments, people. We wanna know what you’re thinkin’!
