Grease: Live Releases First Full Cast Photos
The gang's all here! It's been nearly a month since Fox released the first-look photos from their upcoming live television event, Grease: Live, and the network has finally followed them up with our very first look at the whole cast as their iconic characters.
The first photo (above) shows the star-studded cast—which includes Julianne Hough as Sandy, Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, and Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy—piled atop a vintage red Ford Thunderbird. The second photo (below) shows Hough as sweet-as-can-be Sandy sharing a milkshake with bad boy Danny and the rest of the cast gathered behind them.
Grease: Live is a television adaption of the 1978 blockbuster hit about the romance between Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson that rocked the halls of fictional 1950s high school, Rydell High. Hough, Hudgens, and Jepsen are joined by Broadway star Aaron Tveit (who portrayed Enjolras in the 2012 Les Misérables movie), who will take over the part of Danny Zuko originally played by John Travolta. The cast also includes Dancing with the Stars Season 21 contestant Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie, and Mario Lopez will play Vince Fontaine.
Grease: Live airs Sunday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m. ET on Fox.
