Andrew Garfield has been announced for the adaptation of Tick Tick Boom - presumably as Jon.

Who would you like to see as Michael and Susan.

I would love Ben Platt as Michael and Phillipa Soo as Susan

I was not aware Andrew could sing, but he's an amazing actor. I would love a p.o.c. to play Michael, Brandon Victor Dixon comes to mind. Emma Stone would be a pretty amazing Susan, they will definitely cast a known actress for this.

It would be great to see Karen Olivo recreate her amazing City Center performance as Susan.

Ben Platt is NOT a Michael in any way, shape or form. He could be a Jon, or even a Susan, but definitely not Michael.

There will be more than three people in this film. Expect to see some other names, at least theatre names, appearing.

Maybe because it is going straight to Netflix, it’s a Netflix original lmao

Even if Ben Platt was a Michael (he's really not), he could never be cast alongside Andrew Garfield. Big casting mismatch when they're supposed to be school friends.

according to deadline Vanessa Hudgens has been added to the cast. Not sure what role she was cast in, as Alexandra Shipp was cast as Susan. Not too sure about Hudgens being added. thoughts?

If Shipp plays Susan, maybe Vanessa plays the actress who sings Come to your senses...
