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.


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.


Laurie is a brilliant actor and can do an impeccable American accent. I'd like to see his spin on Moon ala House. Pesci's Moon would be the Moon we'd all expect. He's been playing that exact role for years, it would be boring and unfunny.

pesci is brilliant. and very funny.

I love laurie but he'd be an awful moon. moonfaces insnt "House" House is a bright intellegent though sarcastic and misinthopic doctor.

Moon is al oveable,bumbling crook.

also why deprive Laurie of the better role?

You must have seen some mediocre Moons if you think Evelyn is the better role.

Trust me..i was in the show twice. I saw the 87 broadway production not to mention 3 pro productions.

Evelyn is the better role. he gets one oft he shows best songs, "The Gyspsy in Me" which always stops the show. he gets the funniest scene..the stateroom scene with Reno, and he has some of the shows funniest lines.
Ive seen great moons and great evelyns. but evelyn is the better written part.

Let's just agree to agree that Hugh should be in it.

True, my thinking was good ol' make-up, haha. If not her, what about Imelda Staunton? Oh and what about Sara Ramirez as Reno?
