@PerezHilton: Zoe is great, but Mimi is 19. I think casting someone age specific, especially at the Hollywood Bowl, will have added impact.

@PerezHilton: Mimi's not a hooker. Addict, yes. You're saying, because of her past roles, Vanessa can't play that? I respectfully disagree.

@perezhilton: Don't be such a hater about Vanessa in RENT. She came in, smoking hot, knew the part, sang it great. Why not be open it?
