Post Movie
So far there hasn't been a movie to do justice to what is one of the greatest shows ever.

So who'd be in it?

Reno- Ctherine Zeta Jones
Billy- Hugh Jackman
Lord Evelyn- Hugh Laurie
Hope harcourt-Scarlett Johansen
Moonface- Joe Pesci
Erma- Jenna Elfman
E..J. Whitney- Hal Linden
Mrs. Harcourt-Cherry Jones

Eh I'm lukewarm on Catherine.

Hugh Laurie would be BRILLIANT. Joe Pesci is washed up. What if Hugh played Moon? Hugh as Moon and Matt Brodrick as Evelyn.

Other than in The Producers, I'm not a big fan of Matthew Broderick...

What about Tracie Thoms as Bonnie?
Look how much fun she looks in this picture:

And we know she can sing from RENT.

Hugh is british and plays a twit like no other.
broderick is american why cast him as evelyn its not even his charactewr typoe.

as for Pesci..he isnr washed up. he is a brilliant actor. try getting jobs in hollywood. its hard. He is the perfect moon.

Laurie is a brit..why would he be cast as moon.its not him at all.

Perfect Erma/Bonnie ~ Kristin Chenoweth :D

I think Catherine Zeta-Jones would be alright as Reno ... not sure.

I'd boycott the film if that idiot Chenoweth was in it.

I like her. I always imagined Bonnie being kind of annoying.

the character oof Erma is a bit annoying.but thats the role. not the actress.

she is more of a bubbly sexpot than an annoying freak like Cheno.

Bubbly sexpot is a good analysis of the character, wether Bonnie OR Erma. I prefer the Bonnie version, myself.
