Please tell me it was intended to announce this today because she'll be performing a bit from ANNIE on the Oscars...

I'm happy about this. She was my first choice for the part after Willow left the film.

I was hoping for Raven Simone.

Raven had too many schedule conflicts.

I knew she'd be cast as soon as Willow dropped out. Couldn't think of anyone better for the role, she'll be insanely adorable.

Besty, they really shouldn't be talking to anyone else but Octavia Spencer for Miss Hannigan. Is Beyonce playing Grace or will she just not be involved? Anika Noni Rose for Lily!

Can we get Cuba Gooding Jr. for Rooster? Heck, I know lots of the board isn't fans of hers, but Jennifer Hudson as Grace? Or is this not all-black?

I wouldn't mind them trying to turn this into an Oscar contender.

"but Jennifer Hudson as Grace?"

I actually thought that. She'd be great in that role.

she has a sweeter and more warm quality to her than Beyonce does. She'd be a great Grace. LOVE Octavia as Hannigan idea. I just hope they don't cut too many of the original songs [they will probably only keep Maybe, Hard Knock, Tomorrow, Little Girls, Gonna Like It Here, Easy Street, Don't Need Anything But You] all others will probably be cut and placed with new tunes.

As long as Kanye plays Daddy Warbucks!

Maybe about 15 years ago, I think James Earl Jones would have made a great Daddy Warbucks..heck, I would love to see him in the role now...

Aileen Quinn should be Grace.

Chandra Wilson would also be terrific as Hannigan. Brandy could play Grace.
