JLo Bye Bye Birdie Casting Scouting Report: Ricky Martin

JLo Bye Bye Birdie Casting Scouting Report: Ricky Martin

As Executive Producers Jennifer Lopez, Neil Meron, and Craig Zadan and Directors Jerry Mitchell and Alex Rudzinski prepare for the December 2017 production of ‘Bye Bye Birdie Live!’, the race for who will be playing Conrad Birdie is intensifying.

Pop star Nick Jonas and musical theater star Rikki Lee Travolta may be the popular choices according to rumors and fan excitement, but there are other stellar candidates to consider.

One such candidate is Ricky Martin. Like Nick Jonas, Ricky Martin is a bonafide pop star. Like Rikki Lee Travolta his is a tall, handsome musical theater star. His Broadway credits include ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Evita’. Plus, it would put another Latino in the cast alongside JLo.

As casting choices narrow down in anticipation of NBC’s ‘Bye Bye Birdie Live!’, don’t be surprised if Ricky Martin joins Nick Jonas and Rikki Lee Travolta at the top of the dream cast list.
