Fox’s live staging of Grease has found its Sandy and Rizzo — as well as a premiere date.
“Tell me more, tell me more,” you say? Well…
Dancing With the Stars alum/actress Julianne Hough will fill the role of Rydell High noob Sandy, while High School Musical grad Vanessa Hudgens will get a hickey (if not more) from Kenickie, as bad girl Rizzo.
The three-hour live musical staging, which was originally announced to bow this year, instead will be broadcast Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, starting at 7/6c.
Hough’s acting credits include 2011’s Footloose remake and the Broadway-to-screen adaptation Rock of Ages, while Hudgens’ post-High School plans have included the films Spring Breakers and Machete Kills.
That leaves, among others, Danny Zuko still to be cast. Who’s your pick to fill Travolta’s shoes as the greaser?
