Nikki Blonsky
Asked about 'Hairspray 2', 'Hairspray' star Nikki Blonsky gushes on whom she knows are expecting to return to the comedy musical film, including Zac Efron and Brittany Snow.


While many of the speculations around "Hairspray 2" development are yet to be confirmed, Nikki Blonsky shares who are willing to return in a heartbeat for the sequel of "Hairspray". In an interview with OK! Magazine, she gushes, "Zac [Efron] has said he'd love to do it again, and I know Brittany Snow is down for sure."

The 20-year-old then adds that she has no idea whether Amanda Bynes will reprise her role as Penny Pingleton. "I don't know about Amanda. I hope she will," she says. On the possibility of her returning as Tracy Turnblad, she is quick to express her willingness to do the part once again, "I want to put on my Tracy Turnblad wig again and dance my little heart out."

Earlier, "Hairspray" director Adam Shankman has hinted on what the sequel will be dealing with, saying that Turnblad and her friends will face "a time of serious change" as they have to navigate their way through the "next era of music", the late '60s. On the occasion, the filmmaker also noted that they are still gathering ideas for the follow-up movie.

"Hairspray" itself was based on the Tony Award-winning 2002 Broadway musical of the same name. It tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, a pleasantly plump high school student turned TV dancing show star. Released on July 20, 2007, it stars John Travolta, Nikki Blonsky, Michelle Pfeiffer, Amanda Bynes, James Marsden, Zac Efron and Brittany Snow. Ever since its release, the flick has grossed around $200.6 million worldwide.
