Who Should Star in Annie and Funny Girl?


Both amazingly fun musicals are headed to Broadway as I wet myself with excitement, and neither has been cast yet.

So it’s up to us to start pitching for our faves:

For Annie, how about Sarah Jessica Parker–who once played the title role–as the lovably evil Miss Hannigan?

The stunt-casting publicity alone would make it a hit.

For the role of the moppet-headed Annie, is Abigail Breslin too old? Well, then, maybe Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris is available. Yeah, that would work!

As for Funny Girl, my pal Vodka Stinger and I agree that Lea Michele is the only one who can sort of come close.

She’s the greatest star, so give her the job–even if she doesn’t want it!
