Yes, I know, they’ve tried. But they didn’t try with MY cast.
Ignatius J. Reilly – Nick Offerman and Zach Galifianakis are both good options; but let’s think outside the box. What about Christopher Douglas Reed?
Irene Reilly – ME of course! Or Amy Sedaris
Angelo Mancuso – Joseph Gordon Levitt
The Mean Desk Sargent – Dennis Leary
Claude Robichaux – George Clooney
Lana Lee – Katherine Heigl
George, the ‘orphan’ – Slade Pearce (I know nothing about him, but he’s got the look.)
Darlene – Jennifer Coolidge (ok, she might be older than you’d expect, but can’t you just HEAR her “me and the bird’ll be boffo!”)
Burma Jones – Is Mos Def too old? Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, then.
Mr Watson, the Bartender from Mattie’s Ramble Inn – Can’t go wrong with Denzel Washington.
Mr Gonzales – Sacha Baron Cohen
Miss Trixie – Cloris Leachman (too obvious? I would have liked Elaine Stritch, but I was too late. How about Holland Taylor?)
Gus Levy – James Marsden
Mrs Levy – Kristin Wiig
Santa Battaglia – Roseanne or Madonna
Dorian Greene – Peter Paige
Timmy, the Little Sailor – Jean-Luc Bilodeau or Thomas Brody-Sangster (apparently, I think Timmy needs a hyphen)
Mr Clyde, of Paradise Vendors – Kim Coates
Myrna Minkoff – Emma Stone
Dr Talc – John Cusack
Did I leave any one out?
