Kristin Chenoweth: I’d Love to Play Glinda on the Silver Screen

Kristin Chenoweth is raring to reprise her Wicked role in the upcoming movie version of the Tony Award-winning musical – assuming she’s still young enough to walk!

Interviewed on Fruit Salad, the diva, who originated Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, says she’d sign on for the flick in a flash, though doesn’t hold out much hope that the opportiunity will present itelf anytime soon.

CAPTION: "I'll be waiting. I'll be waiting," Kristin tells us of the chance to bring Glinda to the cineplex.

“All I can tell you is that I think the movie will definitely happen,” Kristin, who turns 41 this month, tells hosts Pauly and Marky.

“But I might be old enough to play Madame Morrible [the headmistress at Glinda's university] by the time that thing comes into fruition.”

“I think they’re going to try and suck it dry for as much money as they can before they make the movie,” she adds of the 2010- slated project – in which IMDb only lists her as being “rumored” to play Glinda.

“If you think about it, Chicago and Phantom – it was 20 years or so before either of those was made into a film.

“But, obviously, I would love to do it for film, because I created it and originated it. And I’m sure Idina [Menzel, who originated the co-starring role of Elphaba] feels the same way.”

Wicked, which debuted on Broadway in 2003 – with a score by Stephen Schwartz, who also wrote Godspell and Pippin – tells the pre-Wizard of Oz story of Glinda’s relationship with Elphaba, who will go on to morph into the Wicked Witch of the West.
