LAMB Casting: My Best Friend’s Wedding

by AndrewEncore · June 25, 2010 · Lamb Casting · No Comments
Hello, folks. This is Andrew from Encore’s World of Film & TV with another episode of LAMB Casting. This time things are getting a little more upbeat (after the bloodbath of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? it’s only fair) and your task is to cast the underrated 1997 romantic comedy My Best Friend’s Wedding. Confession: I think Julia Roberts is an excellent actress, so choose wisely. The film revolves around lovely Ms. Roberts but it’s a quartet of sorts so the four characters to cast are:
Julianne Potter, our heroine originally played by Roberts: assertive and outspoken, but still insecure it shall be tough to one up Julia
Michael O’Neal, our leading male but not the hero originally played by Dermot Mulroney: good looking and bland (as far as I could tell) really Mulroney was a bit of a bore, let’s see what you can do to improve
Kimberly Wallace, the ingenue originally played by Cameron Diaz: ostensibly naive but not an idiot, personable but just  a little annoying Diaz was golden here, but there are some good options out there
George Downes, the best friend originally played by Rupert Everett: smart, suave and a lot of fun this will be the tough one I think…
So there you go, start brainstorming and send me your ideas to dangerous.liaison231(@) (remove parentheses) with the words LAMB Wedding in the title. Enjoy.

I will say a little prayer for you.
