    LAMB Casting: On the Waterfront (Results)

    Andrew here, FINALLY with the results of the last LAMB Casting entry. I’ll admit, a part of me kept holding off the closing of the polls hoping there’d be a last minute surge, but from the get-go your votes were all headed in one particular direction. I’d like to salute all six bloggers for their inspired re-casting take on Eliza Kazan’s On the Waterfront.

    Let’s take a look at what the line-up...

    LAMB Casting: On the Waterfront (VOTING TIME)

    Hello all, Andrew here with the next round of the LAMB Casting shenanigans. I’ve received six fine entries for re-casting Elia Kazan’s excellent fifties film and now it’s time for you – the voters – to pick which one you love best

    I’m particularly intrigued with this round of entries. For one, On the Waterfront is a favourite film of mine and I’m interested to see which contemporary stars you’d see filling the...

    LAMB Casting: On the Waterfront

    Andrew here, with a new episode of LAMB Casting. In an attempt at efficiency I’m starting a new leg of the LAMB Casting fun only a few days after crowning Anna (Defiant Success) as winner, second time over. We’re going further back with Elia Kazan’s excellent On the Waterfront.

    Random trivia, did you know that Kazan’s reputation was somewhat smeared for naming names (naming fellow members of...

    LAMB Casting: Interiors (VOTING TIME)

    Andrew here, this month for LAMB Casting I thought it would be nice to focus on Woody Allen’s first straight-drama film – Interiors. With a strong female focal point it proves such interesting opportunities for recasting. So, I put the idea to you and I earned six excellent options. Even if you haven’t seen Interiors (a lovely film) I’m intrigued to see which cast interests you most. It’s a...

    LAMB Casting: Interiors (Reminder)

    Andrew here, you’ve got until Saturday to send me your choices for this month’s episode of LAMB Casting.

I’ve included brief details about the characters to be cast to give you some help…

    The Parents

    LAMB Casting: Interiors

    Andrew here, you’d have noticed that it’s been some time since a LAMB Casting entry. Apologies, but we’re back. This month’s entry is an oft forgotten Woody Allen film (but no less significant in its oeuvre) and I suspect that a number of you might not have seen it. I’m intrigued at the idea of re-casting it, though, because of the strong female focus and even if you haven’t seen the original don’t let that dissuade you...

    LAMB Casting: Taxi Driver (Results)

    Andrew here, let’s just avoid all preamble of my lateness and get on with the results – shall we?

    It seems that the more celebrated the film the more interesting you folks become in recasting it and this time around we get eight potential picks for the Taxi Driver remake (which shall not happen, but is still fun to imagine).

    You voted for the last month, so here’s who you voted for.

    LAMB Casting: Taxi Driver

    Andrew here, yup it’s Christmas and whatnot and you’re probably trying to get into the festive mood. Before you commit to that, though, it’s time for the next episode of LAMB Casting and we’re going dark with Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver. It’s a gritty one, and I’m particularly interested to see how the casting works out. Ostensibly any re-casting of this will live and die by its...
