Teachers/Administrators Cast
Posted Dec 01 2008 by Pam

Actors Megan Mullally, Kelsey Grammer, Charles S. Dutton, Bebe Neuwirth and Debbie Allen have been tenured. The quintet has been chosen for administrative and teaching roles in the remake of "Fame."

Mullally will play a voice instructor.
Grammer will play an orchestra conductor.
Dutton will play an acting teacher.
Neuwirth will play a dance teacher.
Allen will play Principal Simms.

Some of you may remember that Bebe Neuwirth played a dancer teacher in an episode of the Fame TV series so I am excited to see her back in this as a dancer teacher.

Production on the movie begins this Wednesday.

Thanks to Teresa for the heads up.

It's just so appropriate that Debbie has been chosen for the Principal role wink - though of course this is a remake/new version of the "movie" and not of the "series".

Loving Kelsey & Bebe together again. Dont know about Debbie thou. Gonna be hard to 'not' imagine she is Lydia. Either call her Principal Grant (and have that loose tie in) or dont call her by any name and we can all 'imagine' its an extenstion of the Movie & Series and believe shes Lydia if we want too!! After all in the original movie she was never referred to by name at all (only in the end credits as 'Lydia' I believe)

With any luck, Mark, her character name will be Lydia Simms ... perhaps a married name? We can always hope that her first name is Lydia and that she's actually called that in the movie.

Although I didn't watch Cheers much I am aware of Kelsey and Bebe's work together on the show as well as Kelsey's later show. But my interest in him is from his work in musicals ... like Anastasia and A Christmas Carol The Musical.
