RDJ sees Harvey?

09.16.2009

Speculations from people who care and those who don't alike had Tom Hanks collaborating once more with Spielberg for the director's upcoming HARVEY remake. But both guys shot that idea down, feeling the casting would be a little too on the nose. Who then shall see a giant bunny, other than Jake Gyllenhaal?

While dropping a few good words recently about Robert Redford's Lincoln movie, Spielberg apparently let it slipped that he'd like Robert Downey jr to play Elwood P. Dowd.

Downey would be an obvious and perfect choice for that part, and would probably make lots of naysayers reconsider the idea of a Harvey remake. BUT,  he already nailed the part of a guy with invisible friends, 4 of 'em, in HEART AND SOULS. Plus I'd much rather see RDJ stay with his current slate of blockbusters and then go back to making a few indies or smaller movies for a while.

Extra Tidbit: Here's my suggestion: Alan Tudyk. That guy deserves to finally hit it big. any other ideas?

My Dream Cast...

I would love to see John Cusack as Elwood, his sister Joan as the sister, Hayden Panatierre as the daughter, Ryan F'n Reynolds as the young doctor, Robin Williams as the older doctor, Christina Milian as the nurse and Donald Faison as the guard. But... I dunno if anyone's coming back to read this. If so, lemme know what you think.

RDJ and Speildog?

Awesome team up. Though an equally awesome team up would be luke319's suggestion of Sam Rockwell.

Tudyk's actually a pretty good pick. Although, one of the other commenters was right, Spielberg's films tend to star A-Listers. So if that were the case I'd go with Sam Rockwell, maybe? Yeah, the guy's played mentally unstable characters before, but he's pretty freaking good at it and it looks like his career is finally starting to really take off. Elijah Wood would also make a pretty decent (and interesting) choice. Hoesntly my first pick would be Ryan Gosling, but I have a feeling people

Alan Tudyk is a good actor, but Spielberg almost always makes movies with big-name actors, it's what he does. Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Eric Bana, etc. Not a lot of people know Tudyk. I also don't think he's quite right for the lead, but I'd be fine with him playing the rabbit.

Tudyk is a good pick, but dill is right, Spielberg tends to work with A-Lister's. Also I doubt Tudyk would play the rabbit, because ((KIND OF SPOILER)) it never appears in the original (or any of the remakes I've seen), since that's sort of the point, that it's an invisible giant rabbit and you don't know whether the guy's crazy or not.

Luke- I was just joking about Tudyk playing the rabbit. I figured that was clear.
