Post Cast a remake of Carousel.
Billy Bigelow- Hugh Jackman
Julie Jordan- Amy Adams
Carrie Pipperidge- Kristen Bell
Enoch Snow- Jake Gyllenhaal? (If he has the voice for it)
Jigger Craigin- Kevin Kline
Nettie Fowler- Angela Lansbury
Louise- ???


My main concern is whether Kline and Adams are too old for those roles.

That shouldn't be any concern... ;-)

Hugh Jackman would make an good Billy.
Anne Hathaway would play Julie 'cus girlfriend's gotta' do a musical.
(WHen you said Amy Adams, I first thought of the girl from American Idol).
I think Ashlet Tisdale would make a decent Carrie, if she can sing in that style. Or Anneliese van der Pol. Actually, she would make a good Julie too.
How bout Ewan McGregor for Enoch? Or Zach Braff. They both sing.
Kevin Kline is too too too old to play Jigger. Taye Diggs might be a better choice. Taye Diggs might also make a good Billy.
Again, Angie is too old for Cousin Nettie. It'd have to be Babs. Or Glenn Close.
Louise... any young actress who dances can play this part. It could be an unknown.

Really Salome? I thought you hated Meryl.
Mickey Rooney is a brilliant idea.
I think Kate Beckinsale and Scarlet Johansen are too old, though.

Anne Hathaway, Ashley Tisdale....



*shudders*


And Ewan McGregor is one of the most awful singers to ever perform in a movie musical.


As for Meryl as Nettie, I'm afraid her singing voice might not be earthy enough for Nettie's songs.

zOMGosh, Indigo. You can just go... poop.

Anne Hathaway is (a) one of the most beautiful women of our time (b) a phenomenal actress, and (c) a superb singer (look 'er up on youtube).
And you're wrong about Ewan. But whatevs.

Anne Hathaway doesn't have enough depth as an actress to carry Julie Jordan.


And no way is Ewan McGregor vocally capable of stepping in a Robert Rounseville role. Rodgers and Hammerstein didn't write for their singers to be digitally edited.


Ashley Tisdale...what a travesty. The girl can't sing or act her way out of a paper bag.
