Newbie here, hello all.

For Charlie, I keep thinking of actors that are too old to play a 30-year old. Such as:
John Cusak (you've already mentioned him)
Tom Cavanaugh (from the TV show "Ed"--the quintessential neourotic, funny, and lovable guy)
Ed Norton (amazing actor, great range, but I'm thinking of the movie "Keeping the Faith", although he was incredible in "Fight Club")

Closer to 30, I think maybe Zach Braff. Also a possibility is Topher Grace (was on "That 70's Show").

For Lily, I'm having trouble picking actual teenagers as well. But here's a good one, have you ever seen the movie "Ghost World"? Thora Birch was very good and played a very "Lily"-like character.

If age wasn't such a problem, I also like Caroline Dhavernas for Lily (she was the lead in the fabulous but cancelled TV show "Wonderfalls").

Nice choices, UReadLots, and welcome! I have an image of Lily, and I can't place who it is (maybe I just made her up, but Thora Birch has the right look to her

http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0169547/Ss/0169547/5?path=pgallery&path_key=Birch,%20Thora

I imagine Lily as being meatier though. WAIT. The image of Lily I had was the girl from Ghost World - Thora Birch. Cool.

Ok, yes I would cast Cusack as Charlie, good choice, there are others but we can let that be for now. As for Minty Fresh, it CANNOT be Samuel L Jackson, unless you want him to yell through the entire movie, maybe DelRoy Lindo, I think he is very underrated when he gets a good role, his of the Angel in A Life Less Ordinary is what makes me choose him. As for Lily, I would go with teh young Anti World Character from Sisterhood fo The Travelling Pants. I sat through it with my daughter the other day and thought, "theres Lily". As for Ms. Ling, I like the old Landlady from KungFu Hustle. I really like Amy Adams for maybe Audrey/Rachel...I dont know, I maybe wrong.

And completely off subject, I have always chosen(ever since i saw the OC) Adam Brody for Biff in Lamb...I think watching him celebrate Christmasukkah and all things Jewish makes him an ideal Teenage Biff!

I voiced the character as Samuel L Jackson in my head, but I think he's too old for the part. A guy I think might be good at doing a Samuel L Jackson-like rendition of the character is the actor on on the new Nextel/Sprint commercial where they spin the wheel of adjectives and he exclaims in a very Samuel L Jackson-like voice "That's Fantastic" (or whatever the exclamation he exclaims is).

If you didn't want to go with a Samuel L Jackson style - then maybe the thoracic surgeon on 'Grey's Anatomy'

For Bob Wilson's voice (or perhaps the voice of the ninja squirrel if it's decided we get to hear his thought bubbles) I nominate Mike Judge, if for no other reason than including this scene in the most recent episode of 'King of the Hill'

Mo' movie stuff  Reply with quote  

Hey all...some great ideas for casting! I hadn't thought of Topher Grace, but he actually might be a nice choice. But Edward Norton...yeah, I could totally see him as Charlie. I still like Zooey Deschanel as both Sophie and Audrey.

Like Thora Birch. Still want Mos Def for Minty Fresh...he has some chops, and he's funny!

I saw Susan Sarandon as a Morrigan, and thought: hey, why not the O.G. witches of Eastwick? Susan, Michelle and Cher? Guess not, but kind of a funny thought.

Oh well. I just hope it gets made somewhere, sometime. I think it would make a fantastic movie. I live in California..maybe our Governator, Arnold, could get the picture made. Hey...HE could be Mrs. Wong! Or better yet, the Russian lady!

I thought Orlando Bloom would be perfect for Charlie. He's just skinny and geeky and all around a goofball.

Bloomin'  Reply with quote  

Is he funny? Can he do comedy? I personally don't find him good looking at all, but I know a lot of people do. But he's kind of associated with those heart throb roles rather than humor. Can he do it? If so, I like him.

He can, he's naturally goofy and has spouted more than his share of comical lines before. Not so much in his movies (save for Elizabethtown but that sucked period) since all he really does are period pieces. I think he's pretty much type cast like that though. But I'm only 70 pages into ADJ and I just keep picturing him as Charlie.

Oh yes, I also can see Charlize Theron as Jane. Completely. I think Charlize IS Jane. Not to mention Charlize has played a lesbian before.
