Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus And James Maslow For “Grease” TV Special
FOX is working on a “Grease Live” special, and we have a list of stars who have revealed that they would love to be part of the special. Olivia Newton-John, who played Sandy in the original movie, told Showbiz Tonight back in 2012:
I’m sure they’ll try [a remake], and I think it would probably do well because people would be curious. But there’s something about the originals … that people still want to see. But I’m sure they’ll do it, and they’ll do an updated version, and it’ll be great. Lately, I’ve thought Taylor Swift could probably [star in the lead role], because she’s very talented. And my daughter, I’ve always thought she could.
It would be a lot of fun. It’s been talked about a lot over the years but it would be awesome to play Danny. If I had to pick my perfect Sandy I would go for Miley Cyrus without hesitation. She can sing, dance and act. I would really want some great people to star in it. Wouldn’t Susan Boyle make an amazing Principal McGee? We’d just need to write it into the script that she broke into song. I am obsessed with Susan Boyle. When I look at her original [Britain’s Got Talent] audition it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I would love to include Cheryl Cole in the movie as well if she was up for it. She would look great in the Rydell High cheerleading uniform.
Plus, Big Time Rush star James Maslow seems to be up for playing Danny as well!
