I received four interesting casting ideas, each with more than a bit of merits. Here they are.

Mackey); Dennis Haysbert (Jimmy Gator); Jurnee Smollett (Claudia Wilson Gator); Frank Langella (Earl Partridge); Sandra Oh (Linda Partridge); Frankie McLaren (Stanley Spector); Kal Penn (Phil Parma); Steve Carell (Donnie Smith); Jason Lee (Officer Jim Kurring); Scott Bakula (Rick Spector)

    The tricky random order of the options made me vote for the wrong one. I’m an idiot.
