As the Baker's Wife?! BLECH!

Sure. Dick van Dyke could double too, actually. I've just never seen Jim Dale in anything, so I didn't consider it. Plus, I love the idea of Dick van Dyke playing the Mysterious Man.

I LOOOOOVE the idea of Cate Blanchett as the Baker's Wife. Seriously, she would do such an amazing job. Zeta-Jones would also be a great Witch, I think.

Reese Witherspoon and Sara Paxton should be Lucinda and Florinda, and Michelle Pfeiffer IS the Stepmother. ;D

Meryl Streep should be Cindy's Mother.

James Marsden needs to be one of the Princes, and Lucas Grabeel would make an awesome Jack, in my opinion. Anne Hathaway should be Cinderella...if not her, then Amy Adams. LRRH should be played by a new face, some child star we haven't seen before. It shouldn't be a really young girl...12-14 seems a good age range.

And as much as I love Cheno, she really wouldn't fit in ItW...plus she's too old. I say Amanda Seyfried (a suggestion Baker made and I think would work really well).
