LAMB Casting: All About Eve

Andrew here, with another episode of LAMB Casting. We took a relatively new film the last time with P. T. Anderson’s Magnolia but this month we return to our classic roots and are recasting Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s 1950 Best Picture winner All About Eve. It’s a notorious ensemble (featuring one Oscar winning and four Oscar nominated performances) and it’s appeared time and time again on list of greatest films. So, you have your work cut out for you in recasting the principal players.


Margo Channing (originally played by Bette Davis)
Eva Harrington (originally played by Anne Baxter)
Bill Sampson (originally played by Gary Merrill)
Addison DeWitt (originally played by George Sanders)
Karen Richards (originally played by Celeste Holme)
Lloyd Richards (originally played by Hugh Marlowe)
Birdie (originally played by Thelma Ritter)

All About Eve is sort of superlative in the way that it has a brilliant screenplay, great direction &etc so good luck finding a band of brilliant actors. Just send me your choices for the characters listed above to my email at dangerous.liaison231(@) (remove parentheses) with the word “LAMB Casting” in title. Good luck with your choices.

    Hoorah! Great choice. 😉 I’m so going to enter but it’s going to be hard to find a group of actors as amazing as the original group…
