We've found our beauty school dropout!
The cast for Fox's highly anticipated TV musical, Grease: Live, is finally complete now. The network announced on Wednesday that a key role has officially been filled: Carly Rae Jepsen will play "Frenchy."
The "Call Me Maybe" singer will step into shoes -- or should we say hair? -- of one of Rydell High's most popular students and joins previously announced Pink Ladies Julianne Hough as "Sandy," Vanessa Hudgens as "Rizzo," and Keke Palmer as "Marty."
The network also revealed that You're the Worst scene-stealer Kether Donohue will take on the role of "Jan," while David Del Rio will play T-Bird "Putzie."
Additionally, pop powerhouse Jessie J will open the live event with a performance of a brand-new version of "Grease (Is the Word)," which was first heard in the animated opening titles of the beloved 1978 film.
We personally think that Jepsen is the perfect person to step into the role of Frenchy, given her sweet yet edgy voice and big doe-eyes.
I guess you could say that we really, really, really, really, really, really like this casting!
