Jessica’s rumored to be up for the main part of Kim, a Vietnamese orphan who falls in love with an American soldier amidst the fall of Saigon.

Broadway star Lea Salonga — the original Kim — thinks Jessica would be great for the part, saying, “If she’s the one that they’ve chosen, or she’s somebody in serious consideration, then that’s a good thing,” Lea said. “We all know she’s talented, we all know she’s actually quite beautiful.”
