Kicking off a regular series of open discussion posts, with this totally pointless and possibly ridiculous but nonetheless fun speculation on who could play the classic stars, inspired by reading about Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe.
Gillian Anderson as Joan Crawford (I’ve heard this one for years, so I’m totally not original but still, this has to be one of the closest resemblances ever and a big missed opportunity, if “they” never make this bio-pic)
Alison Mack (Smallville) as Norma Shearer
Eliza Dushku as Faith Domergue (shoulda been in the Aviator)
Speaking of which, am I crazy to think that Jim Carrey would’ve made a better Howard Hughes?
I’m blank for Warren William. James Woods may match him in spirit, Eric Balfour has a little of the mustache and possibly the rogueishness going on. But good luck finding anyone who compares to William, or George Sanders for that matter.
Who could Catherine Zeta Jones play best?
Finally, check out this uncanny replica of Valentino, That’s actually actor Eduardo Ballerini, who in 2003 did a short film on the silent star.
Ok, tag, you’re it; add your own ideas and/or quibbles or violent disagreements with the above, down below…
