first_imgStay Up Late with Kristin ChenowethJuly 22 on CBSOn the Twentieth Century has completed its journey, but thankfully, Kristin Chenoweth isn’t headed back to Oklahoma anytime soon. Before she stars in Disney Channel’s Descendants, she’ll visit James Corden on The Late Late Show.

The Real-Life Kevin Gnapoor On The Mean Girls Musical

first_img Broadway.com recently caught up with Rajiv Surendra, aka Kevin Gnapoor from the Mean Girls film, about the highly anticipated stage adaptation of the hit 2004 film.“I have heard about it, I’m very excited for it,” Surendra told us at Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween event, which he was attending to promote his new book. “I heard there was a rumor about a song about the word ‘Fetch’ and I really hope that rumor is true.” He continued: “I can’t wait to see it, I can’t wait to see who plays me!”When asked if he would ever be interested in joining the project, Surendra said he would politely step aside for new talent.“I also heard another rumor that Tina wanted to cast original people in the roles and I think that’s a really, really, good idea,” said the OG Kevin G. “ I think it’s an opportunity to have young, fresh faces that haven’t been seen or heard before come onto the stage and be the debut to their career.”P.S.
