Universal’s Pitch Perfect starring Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Banks, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and Rebel Wilson is being marketed as a slightly more adult version of Glee.
Pitch Perfect has cast known a few known B and C list actresses, whereas Glee featured unknowns that were made famous by the show. Studios with hopes for high box office numbers obviously has no time for such things.
Note the scene where redheaded Brittany Snow catches Anna Kendrick singing in the shower, it’s just like when Mr. Schuester hears Finn harmonizing REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling” in the locker room.
Kendrick (Up In The Air, 50/50) is a personal favorite but I don’t know about her as a feisty raccoon-eyed songstress. I think “Fat Amy” is what has me sold.
