Newsflash: American Idiot Gets New Leads – Stunt Casting?

American Idiot, Cast Replacements, Broadway, Denver TheatreRecently, the Broadway musical American Idiot, has seen two well known rockers in the role of the dark St. Jimmy – Green Day’s own Billie Joe and Melissa Etheridge. Well, come  March 1, Davey Havok, who is the lead singer of the rock band AFI will step into the role along with some other familiar faces replacing some of the long standing lead actors.

Not sure if getting second place on the first season of Idol qualifies this as “stunt casting” but Justin Guarini (American Idol, Women on the Verge…) will replace Michael Esper in the role of Will, while Van Hughes will replace the show’s front man, John Gallagher Jr., as Johnny. Making her Broadway debut will be Libby Winters in the role of the Extraordinary Girl (succeeding Christina Sajous).

Esper, Gallagher Jr. and Sajous will conclude their runs Feb. 27.
