Tina Fey and Tim Meadows to Reprise Mean Girls Movie Roles

Tina Fey will once again portray math teacher Ms. Norbury in Paramount+’s upcoming film adaptation of the Broadway musical Mean Girls, which itself was an adaptation of the 2004 Fey-written film in which she first played Ms. Norbury. (Help!)

In other Mean Girls movie-musical news, Tim Meadows will also reprise his role as Principal Duvall.

Fey shared the big news during her Thursday appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers: “We couldn’t age out [of the roles],” she acknowledged. “Teachers work forever. I do want it to be like when Gilligan from Gilligan’s Island was at a trade show and you’d be like, ‘Oh, he looks so old in his little hat.’”

Jonathan Bennett teases his involvement in Mean Girls movie musical

Jonathan Bennett shared a totally fetch update about the upcoming Mean Girls movie musical.

The actor suggested that he may have a role in the movie adaptation of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical based on the 2004 teen classic, in which he starred as Cady’s (Lindsay Lohan) love interest Aaron Samuels. “There’s some talks going on about certain things,” Bennett told PEOPLE at the 34th GLAAD Media Awards over the weekend. “Let’s just say that.”

Bennett said the beloved flick “changed his life” and helped highlight bullying. “It made people realize what bullying was in high school,” he said. “They used comedy with Tina Fey’s amazing writing to be able to talk about it. And I think it was an important movie for so many reasons, but for to bring light to bullying.”


The original film adapted by Tina Fey from the Rosalind Wiseman book Queen Bees and Wannabes follows high school new girl Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) in her attempt to fit in with A-list girl clique, The Plastics. The effort is sabotaged when she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George. Premiering on stage at Washington, D.C.’s National Theatre in 2017 and jumping to Broadway the following year, the Mean Girls musical was also written by Fey, with music by Jeff Richmond and lyrics by Nell Benjamin.


The new film, starring Rice as Cady, will have Avantika and Wood playing Regina’s Plastics cohorts Karen and Gretchen, with Briney as Aaron. 

Arturo Perez and Samantha Jayne are directing from a script by Fey, with Kyle Hanagami choreographing. Broadway Video founder Lorne Michaels is returning to produce alongside Fey, having backed the original film. Erin David, Caroline Maroney and Micah Frank are overseeing for Broadway Video, and Eric Gurian and Jeff Richmond for Little Stranger.
