CAST THIS: Snow White

Nov. 4, 2010by:

With two dueling projects competing to be the best live-action rendition of the classic tale, I figured it was time to write this column. Snow White most know as the classic Disney animated film, but now two films are taking it in a far different direction from its roots.

Two films, two Snow Whites, but who should they be? That's what this casting column aims to find out, and I could use your help with the selections for each film.

First, there's SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNSTMAN, who recently has courted Johnny Depp and Tom Hardy for the Hunstman role. That film is about the pursuit of a murderous white wolf, and the Huntsman and White are a kind of tag team throughout.

Then there's Tarsem Singh's version, which from the director of THE FALL and THE CELL will likely be pretty trippy. That plot hasn't been discussed yet, but it might follow the original a bit more closely. I'll be looking forward to seeing how he handles the dwarfs.

So I don't really see the point in doing two separate columns for each role, so just give me your best suggestion as to who should play Snow White in either film. If you'd like to specify which, that's fine too.

Last Week: LOIS LANE

Last week we asked who should play Superman's love interest, Lois Lane, in the Zack Snyder/Chris Nolan reboot. Which names stood out above all the others?

1. Rachel McAdams (17%) 2. Evangeline Lilly (13%) 3. Zooey Deschanel (10%)

Really good picks guys. In some instances of this column, you leave me saying, whaaa? But this time around, I heartily agree with any of these picks.

McAdams specifically I think is the best choice by a mile. She's gorgeous, talented and has the right look for the part. Lilly and Zooey both resemble the animated Lois Lane more than any recent live action version of her, though I have a bit of trouble seeing Deschanel in a blockbuster like this. And do you think Lilly would up to the task dramatically? But I think both could work in theory.

Alright, now how about Snow White?

Extra Tidbit: This article took me twice as long to write as usual because I spent 20 minutes looking at pictures of Zooey Deschanel's eyes.

I didn't agree with Zooey Deshanel to play Lois Lane, but I think Zooey was born to play snow white.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

or (take a deep breath) Carey Mulligan, Emily Browning, Odette Yustman, Jessica Lowndes, Amber Heard, and yes, Zooey Deschanel.

If Amy Adams was younger, she'd be a natural. She nailed the Disney princess vibe in Enchanted.

I'd go with a younger choice because, that's how I imagine Snow White. A naive teenager.

I wanted to give you a big thumbs up for this. Whether you were joking or not. The girl can act, surprisingly enough. That would be the ultimate Shocker to the MPAA.

Zooey is definitely a good choice. I could see Alison Lohman also, with hair dyed dark of course.

I hope they keep her younger (not Angelina Jolie please) so my choices would be Jessica Lowndes, Leghton Meester, or Zooey Deschanel. Or for a twist, maybe Jessia Lucas?

I would love to play this part. The nurses nicknamed me Snow white after I had my daughter because of my dark hair and pale skin. But alas if I can not I beleive Zoey would fit.

Just watched Alice in Wonderland, so i wouldn't pick anyone from that abortion of a fairy tale lol. Would like to see what Anna Kendrick could do with it. I get it, she's in the stupid twilite flicks, but she was good in Up in the Air.

Hmmm

I depends on the age they are looking for. Anne Hathaway seems the obvious choice, if they go younger, I'd choose Emily Browning.

Depends

on how "DARK" this adaptation is going to be. I don't think Zooey can go dark, per se. I guess Snow White needs fair skin and dark hair, so maybe Anne Hathaway or Keira Knightley.

Carey Mulligan, Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska, Emma Roberts, Ivana Vaquero. I'm generally interested in someone who can play toward the more innocent and/or likable nature I would imagine Snow White would have. Not too cynical. But I'm imagining at least one of these projects will go with a relative unknown.
