Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens Cast in FOX’s ‘GREASE LIVE!”
FOX has finally found it’s Sandy and Rizzo!
The network announced that professional dancer Julianne Hough will play Sandy and Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo in the upcoming LIVE production of Grease. The roles were played by Olivia Newton-John and Stockard Channing, respectively in the 1978 film.
Hudgens comes from a musical background, as she starred in High School Musical. Hough has extensive song-and-dance experience and starred in the lackluster 2011 Footloose remake.
Grease will air on Fox January 31, 2016.
