    Who would you cast in Casablanca?

    Here's one possible cast:

    Clive Owen, Angelina Jolie, Ralph Fiennes as Viktor Lazlo, Robin Williams as Ugarte (the Peter Lorre character), but who would replace Claude Rains (round up the usual suspects) and Sydney Greenstreet, and who would play Sam?

    Jeremy Renner, Marion Cotillard and Ralph Fiennes as Viktor Lazlo.

    Maybe Philip Seymour Hoffman to replace Sydney Greenstreet.

    Oliver Platt as Ferrari - the Fat Man

    Captain Renault is the hardest to cast, in my opinion.

    Oliver Platt! Of course.

    For Captain Renault we need someone who can do honorable, strong and yet sly: Denzel Washington?

    GMV:

    What about Alan Rickman?  I think he could carry off the Bogie character perfectly.  He wasn't the first thought to come to mind, but he has all those layers to him -- maybe too old, though.

    Alan Rickman! Yes!

    Ok, Angelina is out, what about Marion Cotillard? I really loved Naomi Watts in the film I just saw her in. Renee Zellweger (sp?)? Gwyneth Paltrow? That fabulous German woman who was in the first Bourne movie....Franka Potente...not sure I have her name right.

    Why was I picturing brunettes?  Renee and Gwynneth didn't come to mind. 

    What about that actress who was in Pride and Prejudice -- Keira Knightly?  (Had to look that up, for some reason, the name "Kesha Knight Pulliam" kept coming to mind, and I think she was one of the little girls in the Cosby show or something.  Good thing I remembered to take my latest pill!  Tongue out )

    bzorn, awesome. Loves it.

    I wouldn't want to see a young starlet as Elsa. Maybe a women in her 40s or 50s. Give the rewrite a little twist.

    Kyra Sedgewick: Elsa
    Tim Olyphant: Rick

    Re: Who would you cast in Casablanca?

    Ok, ok I'll think about Vince Vaughn.

    How about Don Cheadle and Sophie Okonedo (from Hotel Rwanda) as Rick and Ilse, and Danny Glover as Viktor Lazlo, Denzel Washington as Captain Renault,  Andre Brauer as the German major, Forrest Whitaker as Ferrari, Jeffrey Wright (from Angels in America) as Ugarte, and Harry Connick, Jr. as Sam?

    Or, Ellen DeGeneres as Rick, Anna Paquin as Ilsa, Cynthia Nixon as Viktor, Glenn Close as Renault, RuPaul as Ferrari, Nathan Lane as Ugarte and Barry Manilow as Sam.

    OK, so I'm officially nuts...and open-minded.

    @yogafriend...yeah!!! I thought about Robert Downey, Jr., too. We need a slightly beat up looking guy for that role.

    Or, to have a scary cast, Ed Norton as Rick, Juliette Lewis as Ilse, Daniel Day-Lewis as Viktor, Jack Nicholson as Ferrari, Steve Buscemi as Ugarte, Billy Bob Thornton as the German Major, and Gene Simmons as Sam?

    Ah, now that would be wartime.
