I recently polled patrons at Robinson's Brew-house and asked them for their thoughts on the remake and what casting choices they would like to see. The initial response from those interviewed was "Don't bother me while I'm enjoying my beer Fred" which was generally followed by "Why don't you buy me a beer Fred?" Needless to say after several interviews I was feeling pretty good and Imma was called to drive me home.
After reviewing my notes the majority of those responding felt that a remake was not needed. However a small but vocal number of citizens felt that if it drove more tourism to our town it would be a good and much needed thing. The consensus being that a major increase in tourism is needed to off set the debt created by this years roll out of PirateyBands. An idea that sounded fine on paper but has been plagued with problems since it was launched. The problems surrounding PirateyBands is another story which we may visit at a later date.
In keeping with today's story here is a list of the actors and actresses and the roles for which they were most frequently mentioned during the survey.
(Helena Bonham Carter & Paul Giamatti as Lena and Merle Gogan)
(Matthew Mcconaughey & Joaquin Phoenix as Willie and Grover Gogan)
(Nolan Gould & Draco (Sean Connery) as Pete and Elliot)
(Amy Adams & Mandy Patinkin as Nora and Lampy)
*editors note: I'd like to make the case for a musical version right now.
(Daniel Day-Lewis & Leonardo DiCaprio as Doc Terminus and Hoagy)
(Jodie Foster as Miss Taylor)
(Patrick Dempsey & Larry David as Paul and The Mayor)
