Rent: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Pascal is in final negotiations to reprise his original Broadway role in Revolution Studios' adaptation of the Tony-winning musical Rent.
Tracie Thoms also has joined the cast.
Director Chris Columbus and the studio have been in discussions to reunite much of the original Broadway cast, and Pascal's deal looks likely to be the first one to be completed among that group. Pascal would play Roger Davis, a struggling musician who is HIV-positive. The role earned him an Obie as well as Tony and Drama Desk nominations.
