Keke Palmer Reacts to 'Scream Queens' Co-Star Ariana Grande's 'Wicked' Casting

Keke Palmer is dishing her thoughts on Ariana Grande being cast in the Wicked movies!

The two co-starred in the first season of Scream Queens, and the 28-year-old Lightyear actress revealed how she feels about her former co-star’s latest role.

See what she said…

While making an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in a resurfaced interview from November 2021, Keke was asked about her reaction to Ariana being cast as Glinda in Wicked.

“Oh my gosh, I was so excited for her because, you know what, Ariana hasn’t done a lot of acting since our early days, so I’m excited for her to do this and marry both the theatrical element and the music,” Keke said.

Keke and Ariana were also both Nickelodeon stars in 2010-2011 as their shows True Jackson, VP and Victorious were on at the same time.

She was also asked if she thought her other Scream Queens co-star Lea Michele would have been cast as Elphaba.

“Man, I would not have been surprised. I love Lea,” she said.

If you didn’t know, or forgot, while Ariana and Lea have both been in Broadway shows, Keke is also a Broadway star!

She portrayed the lead role of Ella in Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella from 2014-2015.
