Hello, folks. This is Andrew from Encore’s World of Film & TV with another episode of LAMB Casting.
This time things are getting a little more upbeat (after the bloodbath of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
it’s only fair) and your task is to cast the underrated 1997 romantic comedy My Best Friend’s Wedding
. Confession: I think Julia Roberts is an excellent actress, so choose wisely. The film revolves around lovely Ms. Roberts but it’s a quartet of sorts so the four characters to cast are:
Julianne Potter, our heroine originally played by Roberts: assertive and outspoken, but still insecure it shall be tough to one up Julia
Michael O’Neal, our leading male but not the hero originally played by Dermot Mulroney: good looking and bland (as far as I could tell) really Mulroney was a bit of a bore, let’s see what you can do to improve
Kimberly Wallace, the ingenue originally played by Cameron Diaz: ostensibly naive but not an idiot, personable but just a little annoying Diaz was golden here, but there are some good options out there
George Downes, the best friend originally played by Rupert Everett: smart, suave and a lot of fun this will be the tough one I think…
So there you go, start brainstorming and send me your ideas to dangerous.liaison231(@)yahoo.com (remove parentheses) with the words LAMB Wedding in the title. Enjoy.
I will say a little prayer for you.
