Miranda’s role, described as “goofy,” reportedly involves “a VHS and harem pants.” Music from the Tony Award winning play HAMILTON also makes an appearance as part of Diwata’s audition medley. Bart portrays the school principal. GLEE alum and ‘Hedwig’ star Darren Criss also appears, along with lead actors Austin McKenzie (SPRING AWAKENING), Liam James and Sarah Steele, who starred in the original play . Chenoweth’s voice will be heard over the end credits, performing the original song “Losers are Winners,” composed by Karam. Hedwig choreographer Spencer Liff lends his talents to the dance sequences.

It's nice he got a new role in a movie. 

I see that the actor who played Jean-Baptiste in Glee is also in the cast.

I would love for Darren to do some more films.  I think he would do well in the small, Indie type of films (which Dianna has done as well, and she has done a larger film too). 

Skylar Astin was in Spring Awakening.  Was he there when Lea was in it?  I don't know much about the history of S.A.   I think he got quite well-known through Pitch Perfect 2.    This is something that I would love for Darren to do, do a film or two every year and get some more wide-spread visibility that way (along with doing some TV roles, guest star roles can be very visible too, and of course, release some music too!).   Joseph Gordon-Levitt broke out big when he did the Indie film 500 Days of Summer.

The best for me would be a major role in a TV show, like Blaine in Glee. We would see him every week, without having to go outside :amused

I agree, Jeremy, that a major role in another TV show would be wonderful, whether as a regular cast member, or as a recurring guest star.  And if he worked on a TV show with a shorter season (if he was a regular cast member), he would still have time to do theater projects and music projects (or be on a film).   Being in a TV show would bring him more visibility and would help bring fans into his theater projects (and would help him in music sales, if he released a single or an album).  It's a win-win situation! thumbs up

Speech & Debate Film, With Sarah Steele and Austin P. McKenzie, Sets Release Date

January 27, 2017

The film adaptation of Tony winner Stephen Karam’s acclaimed drama Speech & Debate will hit select theaters Friday, April 7, Sycamore Pictures has announced. The film will also be distributed the same date on iTunes and VOD platforms.

Karam pens the screenplay for the feature film, which is directed by Dan Harris, the screenwriter behind Superman Returns and X-Men: Apocalypse. Sarah Steele, who took on the role of Diwata in the show’s New York premiere at Roundabout Underground in 2007, reprises her performance, joined by Liam James (The Way Way Back) and Austin P. McKenzie (Deaf West’s Spring Awakening).

The cast also includes Roger Bart, Janeane Garofalo, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Kal Penn, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, and Skylar Astin, with cameos by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kristin Chenoweth, and Darren Criss. Chenoweth also performs an original song.

Speech & Debate, which originally starred Steele alongside Gideon Glick, Jason Fuchs, and Susan Blackwell, follows three high school misfits linked by a scandal involving one of their teachers, who revive their school’s long-defunct speech and debate society.

Wow, DC has a new film! Great news! I wonder if he will have a big role, or if it is just a cameo. Either way, as much as I love his musical side, I'm pleased that he is doing something different to that. I'd like to see him just act without breaking into song and dance all the time. Don't want him to be typecast. Poppy, I agree about seeing him in more films. Indie films is a good shout. I hope Smitten does well, or at least will make it to theatres.

Jeremy, you have a good point about TV shows, being able to see him every week would definitely be a plus! But with films you'll have him enlarged on the big screen! :big grin I think I'll put in a vote for both!

Hi dusty, :hello

I think it's a cameo (guys, correct me if you know otherwise; I don't know if he has additional scenes in the Speech and Debate film):

Darren Criss Speech and Debate Cameo


I really have loved Darren in Hedwig and the Angry Inch--he was so stunning in it.  But I now would love to see him in a dramatic role (or comedic role) that is not a musical, whether in a play on or off-Broadway, or a film.

Yes, cross fingers we hear something positive about Smitten!

haha!  You made me laugh (yet . . . it's so true.  :amused ).

Thanks for that Poppy! Yes, looks like a cameo. Still, it's good that he's doing different stuff.

I'm surprised, I didn't except that Darren would play his own role in the movie.
