I'm not sure any actor/singer is really going to be able to capture the vocal qualities of Stevie and Christine, but I could be wrong. I like the idea of them lip-syncing to existing recordings better. Or perhaps, if we find singers with uncannily similar voices, have them record the music, and have the actresses lip-sync to it? It'd probably be much more plausible and have success be much more likely if they find a brilliant vocalist and a brilliant actor in two separate artists, rather than trying to find one who can "do it all" and inevitably compromising in some way.
