Vanessa Hudgens is returning to the small screen for Fox's Grease live musical! The High School Musical star will play bad girl Rizzo alongside Julianne Hough who landed the lead role as Sandy.
“Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge," Vanessa said in a statement. "She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. I’m going to be a Pink Lady!”
We cannot wait to see Vanessa in the iconic role! Since the actress will soon be on Broadway, the live television show should definitely feel less intimidating. Unfortunately, we'll all have to wait until early next year to see the show. According to Julianne, it's scheduled for January 2016.
