Suzanne Tidwell: J Groff would be perfect. He has that inherent sweetness and innocence.

Hunter Emmett Burke:  Jonathan Groff. I feel like he has a big enough fan-base to attract viewers. He also has a nice résumé full of broadway credits and has been in some pretty big projects in Hollywood including Frozen, Glee, and a new HBO series he will be starring in called Looking. I think he is a good candidate.

Anthony Nufrio Jr.:  Jonathan Groff.

Sandile Mhlaba:  MJT, Jonathan Groff, or Jeremy Jordan.

Groff originated the role of Melchior Gabor in the rock-musical Spring Awakening in 2006, for which he received a Tony Award nomination.  He can be heard as the voice of Kristoff in the Disney/Pixar film "Frozen" and will be the star of the HBO original series, "Looking."
