Celebrities That Must Be On Broadway!
The new trend for celebrities is to perform on Broadway! It is a great way to expand their horizons and try something new! Currently on Broadway, you have celebrities such as Jane Krakowski (She Loves Me), Zachary Levi (She Loves Me), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Fully Committed), Lupita Nyong’o (Eclipsed) and the list goes on!
Here is our list of stars we would love to see on Broadway!
Robert Downey Jr.
We all know and love Robert Downey Jr. aka Iron Man! Besides playing Iron Man, he has had roles in Sherlock Holmes, Tropic Thunder and Zodiac. He clearly has the acting chops, personality and charisma for Broadway. However, did you know he is a really good singer as well! Watch him sing “Man Like Me”!
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood right now! Well, why not be one of the hottest stars on Broadway! Her playing Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games not only stole our hearts but showed us her acting and singing skills! In the movie, she is known for singing “Deep in the Meadow” and “The Hanging Tree”. “The Hanging Tree” actually got on the Billboard Hot 100 as number 12 when it debuted! Check out her singing it in The Hunger Games!
Yes, I know what you’re thinking, Why Kim Kardashian? Well, she has experience with acting on television shows such as Keeping Up with The Kardashians, Drop Dead Diva and 30 Rock. She clearly looks the part and is already used to the fame especially being married to Kanye West. She even has some singing experience such as her song “Jam (Turn It Up)”. Most importantly, she would be very entertaining to watch since after all, she is THE Kim Kardashian!
Grant Gustin is not just known for playing Barry Allen on The Flash, but also for his fantastic singing skills! He first became popular on the hit show Glee, where he played Dalton Academy Warblers member Sebastian Smythe. I am a huge fan of Glee and Grant Gustin! I especially loved this number where Sebastian and Santana sung “Smooth Criminal”. Just to prove Grant Gustin should return to Broadway, watch this throwback video of him singing “Glad You Came” on Glee!
Jennifer Lopez is at the peak of her career especially with the recent release of “Ain’t Your Mama”, which has over 15 Million YouTube views! Now is the perfect time for her to come to NYC and be on Broadway! Even though she has a very busy schedule, I think she could find some time to do a short Broadway stint. She could even be a one woman show if she wanted to!
Clearly, these celebrities are meant to be on Broadway!
