Amanda Seyfried Eyes Role in Broadway's WICKED
In a recent interview with EOnline, Amanda Seyfried reveals that she would love to be cast in the long-running Broadway production of WICKED. The actress most recently appeared on the big screen showing off her vocal chops in the role of Cosette in the global hit musical Les Miserables.
Yet Seyfried concedes that before hitting the Great White Way, she would need "another two years of voice lessons" to rise to the standards of the Broadway stage. She comments, "To be honest with you, nobody would put me in that (Wicked). I would have to take another two years of voice lessons before I could do that... I'd like to do something where there's one character who has one big song - a soprano song - but I don't know what that would be."
The Mamma Mia star was in discussions to make her Broadway debut in the Neil LaBute play The Shape of Things, but talks fell through last year. "I wanted to do it, but it didn't end up working out," she revealed. "We had a director but no co-star. But I gotta get on stage, man. I'd love it."
In 2004, Seyfried made her film debut in Mean Girls. Her subsequent supporting roles were in the independent films Nine Lives (2005) and Alpha Dog (2006). She also had a recurring role in the UPN TV show Veronica Mars (2004-2006) and she starred on the HBO series Big Love.
Seyfried appeared in her breakthrough role in the 2008 musical feature film Mamma Mia!. Her other appearances include leading roles in Jennifer's Body (2009), Chloe (2009), Dear John (2010), Letters to Juliet (2010), Red Riding Hood (2011), In Time (2011) and Gone (2012). She played Cosette in the musical film LES MISERABLES (2012) and will play Linda Lovelace in the upcoming biopic Lovelace.
