I Cast Ratatouille: The Musical
Making my (questionable) contribution to the TikTok sensation.
If you've been on TikTok at all lately, you've seen at least one video about the Ratatouille Musical. Creators have come up with everything from music to dances to stage crew directions.
I decided to get in on the fun and toss some casting ideas into the mix.
Tom Holland as Linguini
That sweet face as a red-headed chef? Yes. And we know Tom can handle the musical numbers–we've all seen that "Umbrella" video.
Aubrey Plaza as Colette Tatou
Hot and scary. Period.

Pete Davidson as Remy
Remy, the ratatouille, the rat of all our dreams.
Andre Braugher as Auguste Gusteau
This might be a long shot, but as a Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan I can’t stop thinking about Captain Holt saying “Anyone can cook.”
Danny Devito as Chef Skinner
Adam Driver as Ego
Adam might not be old enough to play Ego, but a little makeup can fix that. There's just something about the deep, ominous emotion in emanating from both of them.
and an honorable mention for Ego, @mmmjoemele’s Dad on TikTok:
Jacob Batalon as Emile (Remy's brother)
Second Spider-Man veteran in the cast, but oh well. We already know he and Tom Holland have chemistry.
Hugh Jackman as Django (Remy's father)
Wolverine absolutely has the range to play a no-nonsense rat father.
And finally, Gordon Ramsey as Horst.
Because who else.
Shoutout to all the Ratatouille creators on TikTok for all your hard work and for making 2020 a little more delicious. Post-COVID Broadway, get ready.
