Animal House Musical In The Works! I Know Who Should Star!

Categories: Theater

Animal House 2.jpg
They're developing a stage musical based on the rambunctious 1978 comedy National Lampoon's Animal House--with music by Barenaked Ladies--and it will probably be the rowdiest thing to hit Broadway since The Book of Mormon.

And since that show's director Casey Nicholaw happens to be helming this one too, I know exactly who should star in the Belushi role:


Josh Gad.

With the Tim Matheson role going to Josh's Mormon costar Andrew Rannells.

Duh.

But who pray tell will play the Book of Mormon's African stereotypes? Enquiring minds want to know.

I see Andrew more as Tom Hulce's Pinto.  Rory O'Malley needs to be Greg Marmalard.

Another movie adapted to a musical?  Please!  Enough!  Where are the original musicals?  Look at "Book of Mormon".  Original ideas can work!

Max Bialystock would need a star or two if he wanted to sell 5000%.

I guess "The Book of Mormon" is going to go down in Broadway annals as the only original (not based on a previous source) Broadway musical in the 21st Century (or so it would seem).

It's so clear and spot on, I bet they're signing contracts as we speak.

Clearly they will play the band who sing 'Shout'.
