Ansel Elgort Cast in Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’
Baby Driver Star Ansel Elgort Will Headline Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story

The role was originated on screen by Richard Beymer in the classic 1961 adaptation of West Side Story. He often plays dreamers, from his breakout role as Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars to the eponymous protagonist in Baby Driver.
And while Elgort is certainly known for his Hollywood film work, he was born and raised in Manhattan, the son of Vogue photographer Arthur Elgort and opera director Grethe Barrett Holby, and attended Manhattan's Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, where he performed in various musicals.
Elgort's casting is a bit of a hit-or-miss situation; Tony is a pretty pivotal role and Elgort has, on occasion, been indistinguishable from an actual block of balsa wood. He'll probably get his chance to show off his voice in the new remake.
Spielberg is directing the film and Tony Kushner wrote the script, adapting the 1957 musical, which itself is inspired by "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare.

Larry Kertplayed Tony in the original 1957 Broadway musical, which earned six Tony nods. The film adaption absolutely cleaned up at the Academy Awards, receiving 11 nominations and winning ten, including Best Director for Wise and Robbins along with Best Picture. His character is part of a tragic love story involving a deadly rivalry between two street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks.
The stakes are high for the rivaling factions of the Upper West Side, and these conflicts underscore the ultimate tragedy of Tony and Maria's relationship.
All that gangly dancing around Atlanta in Baby Driver has paid off big-time for Ansel Elgort, who has been cast in Steven Spielberg's remake of the Stephen Sondheim musical, West Side Story. You know who can apparently do all three?
