When Mandy Moore learned that “Guys and Dolls” was being remade into a Hollywood musical, she instantly tweeted that Adelaide is her “dream role.”
“Just throwing my hat in the ring,” she wrote, retweeting a Variety article that announced TriStar Pictures had acquired the rights to remake the 1955 film and Broadway play by the same name, about gangsters and gamblers in New York.
But when the “This Is Us” star appeared on “Busy Tonight” Monday, Moore, 34, shared why neither she nor Busy Philipps — who is also up for the role — have been able to audition for the part.
“‘Please, I just want to get in the room. I’ll sing, I’ll do whatever I have to do,’” Moore said she told her agents, who responded, “They want to cast the male leads first, and then they want to talk about who the ladies are.”
“That’s Hollywood for you,” Moore continued. “So, I was, like, ‘OK, I’ll sit tight and wait to see who they cast to be Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson.’”
