VIDEO: Would Anna Kendrick Play Elphaba in WICKED? The Actress Responds

On last night's WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE, a caller asked guest Anna Kendrick when she will star in another musical and whether or not she had been in talks to play 'Janet' in FOX's upcoming reboot of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."

Later, when host Andy Cohen asks if she would consider playing Elphaba in Broadway's WICKED, Kendrick responds, "I mean that show is so iconic and I haven't listened to the music in forever, but it's like RENT, it's one of those shows where I'm pretty sure I can sing the entire soundtrack like right now."

Kendrick starred in the film adaptation of Sondheim's INTO THE WOODS. The actress is known for her roles in the films PITCH PERFECT, THE COMPANY YOU KEEP, KEND OF WATCH, THE TWILIGHT SAGA, SCOTT PILGRIM SAVES THE WORLD, PARANORMAN and 50/50. In 2010, Kendrick starred opposite George Clooney and Jason Bateman in the film UP IN THE AIR, which earned her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination.

An accomplished theatre vet, Kendrick made her Broadway debut in the 1997 production of HIGH SOCIETY, for which she received a Tony Award nomination. Kendrick's additional theater work includes A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, MY FAVORITE BROADWAY/THE LEADING LADIES: LIVE AT Carnegie Hall and Broadway workshops of JANE EYRE and THE LITTLE PRINCESS.
