23 Sep – "Bridgerton" star Jonathan Bailey has been cast in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Broadway musical, "Wicked".

The news was confirmed by director Jon M. Chu, stating that the British actor will be playing the role of Fiyero, the love interest of the lead Elphaba in the original musical.

"He's perfect, they're perfect. They'd be perfect together. Born to be forever..... I am too excited to pretend this hasn't been happening. We have a Fiyero!" the filmmaker exclaimed.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Cynthia Erivo will be playing the role of Elphaba, the misunderstood green-skinned Wicked Witch of the West (originally played by Idina Menzel in the Broadway musical), while Ariana Grande will be playing Glinda (made famous by Kristin Chenoweth).

The musical, a prequel to "The Wizard of Oz", follows Elphaba and Glinda as rivals turned best friends who eventually part ways. The big screen adaptation will be split into two movies, with the first one to debut on Christmas Day 2024.
