Move over, Anne! You have a new fierce competitor, and she’s not afraid to sing and dance, too. Emma Stone, who easily won our hearts over in Superbad and then completely amazed everyone with her performance in The Help, is now thinking about starring in the Broadway revival of Cabaret, which would be totally incredible. We all know Emma does a solid job covering Natasha Bedingfield’s ‘Pocket Full of Sunshine’ in Easy A, and the girl can clearly dance when there’s a dare involved.
Other actors and actresses have gotten involved with Broadway too, like Katie Holmes, Ethan Hawke, Jessica Chastain and Daniel Radcliffe. But I think it would be cool to see more venturing in the glitzy world of Broadway. Here is my top ten list of celebs that would totally kill it on stage:
1. Anna Kendrick
As we learned from Pitch Perfect and her new music video, Anna can seriously sing. What if we saw this girl in Mamma Mia?!
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
I don’t think she would actually do it, because I don’t see Broadway being her thing, but Gwenyth was awesome in Country Strong and Glee and I feel like her talents would definitely carry over on stage.
3. Kirsten Dunst
Has Bring it On been made into a musical yet? Well, it should be.
4. Johnny Depp
Johnny can seriously do anything, and probably better and more bizarrely than most. Case in point: Sweeney Todd.
5. Kanye West
Because I’m sure Kanye’s ego can handle it.
6. Jennifer Lawrence
You knew this was coming, right? Jen actually sings a lot in her movies (The Hunger Games, The House At the End of the Street, The Poker House). I mean, the girl is practically begging for a role on Broadway!
7. Justin Timberlake
Justin has proved himself a worthy singer and decent actor; let’s combine the two and see what happens!
8. Ryan Gosling
Did you know Ryan can seriously sing? Well now you do. He’s in the band Dead Man’s Bones. As if we needed another reason to keep falling in love.
9. Taylor Momsen
Taylor is perfect for Broadway. She sings, acts and is okay with wearing a ton of makeup.
10. Zooey Deschanel
Zooey is a woman of many talents. She has her own show, her own website and her own band. Maybe it’s time she took over Broadway, too! What do you say, Zooey?!
