While Christian Borle and Matt Morrison have played the role in workshops (correct me if I'm wrong), Playbill lists an open call for the role....

I personally think that Michael Arden would be the perfect person to play Frank Jr. He has that devilish/boyish persona, sings like a dream and has that great stage presence.

What do you guys think?

I thought I read one time a while back that they were going to cast an unkown in the role.

I've always thought it should be Arden, he has the voice and acting chops for this role.

Though he is a little old for it, I don't see anyone being more perfectly suited for the role than Matt Cavenaugh.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

As much as I love Matt Cavenaugh, I don't think he has the smoothness and slyness that this part calls for.

I'd love to see him prove me wrong, though.

A little known fact is that in the original screenplay, Pan's Labyrinth was Pan's FLAByrinth. Hmmmmmmm...glad they changed it.
