Amanda Seyfried Wants Mean Girls Movie Musical Cameo
The Emmy winner said that Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert are also “100 percent” ready for the musical film.
Amanda Seyfried is ready to welcome the next generation of plastics.
The Emmy winner revealed that she remains determined to star in the upcoming musical adaptation of “Mean Girls.”
“I’m still hoping for a miracle. It’s not really up to us, is it? Seyfried said Fun tonight.
The “Dropout” actress confirmed that co-stars Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert are also open to returning. “All four of us are in it 100 percent,” he said, adding that he already has a cameo idea. “Maybe the mother of our characters? That’s what I thought, but listen, I haven’t even seen the script.”
Almost 20 years after the original 2004 high school comedy, Tina Fey and Tim Meadows reprise their roles as teachers. Fey wrote the screenplay for the adaptation of the Tony-nominated musical, with her husband Jeff Richmond behind the music, Arturo Perez Jr. and Samantha Jayne directing. It’s unclear if the musical is a direct remake of the original film, but the cast of the Plastics has been announced.
“Mean Girls” was adapted into a Broadway production that opened in 2017. “Sex Lives of College Girls” star Reneé Rapp played Regina George in the stage production and will continue her role in the upcoming film in a part created by McAdams. “Mare of Easttown” and “Senior Year” star Angourie Rice plays Cady, a character created by Lohan. The role of Avantika is played by Karen Smith, Seyfried’s character. Bebe Wood as Gretchen Wieners, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis Ian, “Strange Loop” actor Jaquel Spivey as Damian Hubbard.
“The Office” alum Jenna Fischer has been announced to play Cady’s mother. Production starts on March 6.
Seyfried, who stars in the Broadway adaptation of Thelma & Louise, previously suggested the original stars of Mean Girls take over the production for the Great White Way.
“I would kill for a week and all of us playing our part in ‘Mean Girls’ on Broadway,” Seyfried said, referring to the musical show. “Because a ‘Mean Girls 2’ is never going to happen, right?”
Lohan then responded, “I don’t know. I heard something about it being a musical and I was like, “Oh, no.” We can’t do it. It has to be the same tone.”
Seyfried agreed: “Yes.” It would just be completely different.”
Former co-star Lizzy Caplan recently said Grace magazine that she “of course” wants to be a part of a possible “Mean Girls” sequel. “I’d be an idiot not to join,” the “Fatal Attraction” star said. “But for me, I feel like ‘Mean Girls’ had a really good beginning, middle and end. I don’t know what’s left of the story.”
