‘Grease LIVE!’ Releases First Official Full Cast Photo
Grease is the word!
Fox has unveiled the first official photo of the full cast of the upcoming made-for-TV musical. Earlier this month the network released photos of the main stars — Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens and Aaron Tveit in costume as Sandy, Rizzo and Danny, respectively. These newly released photos, however, consist of the complete Rydell High gang.
The ‘milkshake’ photo (as seen in the gallery) is a recreation from the 1978 movie where Sandy and Danny have a date at the diner, but their plans are foiled when the Pink Ladies and T-Birds show up.
Grease Live stars Hough as Sandy, Tveit as Danny, Hudgens as Rizzo, and Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie.
Ana Gasteyer has been cast to play Principal McGee, while Jessie J will sing a live rendition of the movie’s theme song “Grease (Is the Word)” before the show begins.
Grease Live airs Sunday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. on Fox.
