WHEEEE!!!! I just read in the New York Times a piece about 'Rent' the film. They've gotten most of the original cast back, except for Fredi Walker-Browne ( Joanne) and Dapne Rubin-Vega ( Mimi). The movie comes out November 23rd, and I am sooo excited! Amazingly enough, the cast looks pretty much the same as they did then (maybe some more wrinkles lol). Here's the new cast list, and people, i seriously reccommend seeing the play on Broadway before seeing the movie...the experience will blow you away ^_^
Taye Diggs- Benjamin Cofin III Wilson Jermaine Heredia- Angel Schunard Jesse L. Martin- Tom Collins Idina Menzel- Maureen Johnson Adam Pascal- Roger Davies Anthony Rapp- Mark Cohen Tracie Thomas- Joanne Jefferson Rosario Dawson- Mimi Marquez
Tracie Thomas and Rosario Dawson are replacing the original people in the movie.
