If you live in the US, I’ll assume that you’re following the Casey Anthony murder trial. If you live somewhere else, you don’t know what you’re missing!
The trial has everything you could possibly ask for, except for O. J. Simpson. Every character is compelling in his or her own way. The movie won’t be as gripping but it still has potential.
Casey herself is a real piece of work and as guilty as sin. Guilty, your honor! Duh! If Winona Ryder were still young, she would be ideal for the role of Casey. Meanwhile, I’m going to go with Ellen Page. I think she would do a great job as the sulky, sociopathic young murderess.
In the role of Cindy Anthony, I’ve cast Edie Falco. It’s a no-brainer, right? My friend Andy would like the tragically decrepit Ryan O’Neil as Ray Kroc, the meter reader who found the skull in the woods. I’m leaning toward Andy Garcia as that idiot Jose Baez.
Casting suggestions, anyone??
