Skylar Astin at Motel would also probably work well.

And maybe Groff for Fyedka? (he's got the Kail connection)

I also love the idea of Jake Gyllenhaal, he'd be great in about 10 years.

What about Mayim Bialik as Golde, she has so much heart and think she could be really great in a role like this.

Barbra or Bette as Yente would be brilliant!
"

Wow!  Great dream casting. Especially  Taika Waititi.

Dollypop said: "People have suggested Ben Platt for Motel , but the character should be short in stature. I was a very last minute substitution for Motel (I had just finished a run as Mendel, the rabbi's son at another theater and someone thought I would be a good Motel when they lost the actor due to a car accident). I was game but I had a good, medium build in those days and even though a few lines were changed, my body was completely at odds with the role. Motel really has to be a short nebbish."

Ben Platt is 5'9", although I always thought he was shorter.  I always thought Lennard Frey was tall and lanky, but I have not been able to find his height.

Now you know they’re going to stick Melissa McCarthy in this somewhere to sell tickets so cast her as Golde. Barbra will pass, so Rosie O’ Donnell as Yente.

I've loved many of the choices mentioned in this thread, but this cast is exquisite!

Thank you, Matt!

But I also really love the Taika Waititi idea

I also wish he were directing, by which I mean no dis to Mr Kail
