So to buck the trend here, I am disappointed to hear this news regarding Ryan.
He just seems so bored, and has done for the last few years.  I appreciate a lot of this has to do with the £ signs in his contract, but I have to ask, does he have such little faith in his own capabilities, that he has to stay in a role he is clearly tired of, denying the wealth of talent that is out there from having a crack at this challenging role, for example, Jye Frasca, Tom Oakley, Carl Au & from what I hear, Ben Jennings?
Molloy is a talented performer, I just think it is time to move on from Frankie and try something else, I would love to go from not enjoying his Frankie, to loving him in something else.  I know its been cast, but I would love to see him as Wonka.

I think Ryan would have been a great Wonka and I've spoken to him about it a few times. I've been telling him to leave Jersey Boys for years (and I don't mean this in a rude way - I do love Ryan's Frankie!). But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy he's staying on.
Personally I'm still enjoying Ryan's Frankie a lot. I love(d) Jye, Mike, Dan and Tom as Frankie but Ryan is still my number one.

I agree that he seems a bit bored with the role but part of me is selfish and is happy he's staying. I love him as Frankie. And he's chosen to stay, no-one's forcing him.

I am itching for the official announcement Re- the Cast Change, am I right in saying nothing has been heard (whispers or otherwise)  yet regards Nick Massi?  I have hopes for someone that I know got down to the last two at one point (not sure for what part but guessing Massi) He has a silky smooth Baritone voice and is between jobs right now....I am hoping he went for it again   ;)
