Perhaps this will get Jennifer Hudson an Emmy, adding to her extensive list of awards! NBC announced a few months ago they were planning their next Live Musical, Hairspray but no word on casting, until NOW!
Jenifer Hudson will play “Motormouth” Maybell (Queen Latifah’s character in 2007 movie)
Harvey Fierstein will play Edna Turnblad (Harvey won a Tony Award for playing Edna on broadway in 2003)
Hairspray Live! debuts Wednesday, December 7 2016
Who do you want to join the cast?
