    Apparently she was in the running to play Maria in this Spielberg remake but was pipped to the post. SHAME!

    The role went to a high school student who you can hear below singing an unknown song



    Ansel Elgort is playing Tony

    Ansel Elgort is fit. The girl is giving me irritating Rachel from Glee vibes, but nobody is as irritating as Camila Cabello, so it's okay.

    Isn't Tony supposed to be Latino? Weird choice to whitewash that role in 2019.

    It's the Sharks that are the Puerto Rican gang, whereas the Jets are white, so its the Maria role that will have the whitewashing controversy rather than the Tony one.

    Apparently, she's Colombian-American which I guess is close enough to keep them out of trouble?

    Yeah, there won't be any controversy over her casting.

    I watched the first thirty minutes in a dance class once and found it unbearable.

    I haven't seen the original (that run time :zombie:) but the musical is fabulous. Looking forward to this.
