Zoe Murphy – Florence Pugh
Larry Murphy – Nick Offerman
Connor Murphy – Alex Lawther
The actor, known for The End of the F**king World and The Imitation Game, is on a roll – he's about to appear in Wes Anderson's new film The French Dispatch for a start! So taking on the role of tortured teen Connor might be a nice bit of casting – he has a great West End presence too, having starred in The Jungle among other things.
Cynthia Murphy – Laura Dern
Laura Dern is having a big moment right now (Marriage Story, Little Women) and seeing her reunite with Pugh would be a nice treat. She could play tortured mother Cynthia with her eyes closed. Our other pick would be Megan Mullally, because seeing real-life husband/wife pair Mullaly and Offerman side by side on screen would be ace.
Heidi Hansen – Jada Pinkett Smith
Jared Kleinman – Will Roland
We are wholeheartedly committed to having one of the original cast members return for the film and, while Ben Platt may look *slightly* too old now to pass for a late teen, the forever youthful Will Rowland should definitely be back after playing the role of Jared on Broadway.
Alana Beck – Amandla Stenberg
She may have got her big break as Rue in The Hunger Games, but Stenberg has been going from strength to strength since then with a raft of high-profile films including Everything, Everything and The Hate U Give while being included in Time's list of Most Influential Teens in both 2015 and 2016. She's also a brilliant singer – take a look at the video above if you need any proof.
Evan Hansen – ???
And as for Evan…well…we don't want to know who they are! We hope the film goes the same route as the Jamie film and finds a relatively unknown performer, transforming them into an exciting new stasge and screen presence. We can't wait to see who takes charge.
