Vanessa Hudgens to play an HIV-positive stripper
High School Musical hottie has been cast to play HIV-positive stripper Mimi in Neil Patrick Harris-directed musical Rent.
According to Harris, who makes his directorial debut with Rent, Vanessa Hudgens was his number one pick and was cast as soon as she arrived at the work session.
Vanessa really impressed,” Neil said. “She looks amazing, has great vocal chops, and seems really committed to honoring the somewhat iconic role of Mimi.”
Playing a stripper is quite a step forward to more adult roles for Hudgens, 21, who rocketed to stardom playing Gabriella in the High School Musical franchise.
Her latest movie project, Beastly, will premiere July 30, 2010.
As to Rent, it will debut at the Hollywood Bowl in L.A. on August 6.
