I'd like to see the foundation story retold Quentin Tarantino style. One scene in a sweltering Bakersfield afternoon - hoeing or moving pipe. Jump to Sue buying dresses on Rodeo drive. Jump to the fumas circling around Tony waiting for the crumbs.

Tarantino or Scorsese, one or the other- or hey, Frank Miller who did "Sin City." Give it a real glossy yet gritty and altogether noirish feel to it.

I'd like to see what Tarantino could do with it, but I've always said, Hollywood couldn't make up that shit.

So who would be your dream cast for such a movie? I've got a line up that'd earn a few oscar nominations, sure.

I've been trying to think of a cast, and I can't. So, Bluestreak Returns: who do you suggest?

OK, looked at the Alamo News site, looked at pictures, and here it is, my idea of a cast:

Tony Alamo: Robin Williams (has a knack for playing from the dark side).

Susan Alamo: Patricia Clarkson, from NBC's remake of Carrie, played Margaret White, the mother.

Tommy Scarcello: Danny McBride from HBO's "Eastbound and Down"

John Kolbeck: Christopher Meloni, formerly of "Law and Orlder SVU"

Rick Tiner: Emilio Estevez

Bert Krantz: Billy Bob Thornton

Alan Knetter: Vincent Pastore from HBO's "The Sopranos"

Ben Edwards: Kevin Kline

Buster White: George Wendt, from "Cheers"

Don Thorne: Tim McGraw, country singer

Slick: Will Patton

Neil Payne: William Schallert, from the Patty Duke Show

Mike Silverman: Charles Grodin

Sister Debby (seems as if "Via Dolorosa" was about the only song she sang at services): Amy Poehler, from NBC's Parks and Recreation

Nikki Farr: Emma Stone

How's that?

Very good bluestreak, you'd make a fine casting director, except I don't know/don't remember almost 1/3rd of above listed players. So how about maybe could you 'old' it down some?

Bluestreak, I can visualize how most of your selection would play. I'd like to offer a few alternates. I could see Jack Nicholson playing Tony. I'm sure he could capture Tony's unjustifiably, overly confident Napoleon complex - and that vacant stare. Steve Buscemi could do Tommy, with his restless twitchiness. Woody Allen comes to mind as an alternate actor for Neil Payne. Everyone loved Neil and his distracted purfessor personality, so we want him portrayed in a thoughtful way.

Watch "Eastbound and Down," look at Danny McBride, the lead actor, he wouldn't have to spend much time in the makeup trailer, as he has the appearance down cold. Give this a gander:

Schallert just has that professorial look to him, he'd often be playing doctors, lawyers, college presidents and deans, and so forth, and it's that credible authority that seemed to match
Payne.

Toss a few character, and if I know them, I'll cast it.

If the budget could possibly provide I'd have to have Joaquin Phoenix play Tony.

I fear I'll make this movie far too expensive to produce but Meryl Streep as Susan,Hugh Laurie as Neil Payne,Russell Crowe as John Kolbeck,Rosie O'donell as Debbie O. and I'll have to give my votes for the remaining cast a bit more thought.

How about Steve Railsbeck as Tony Alamo? He played a VERY convincing Charles Manson in "Helter Skelter." I see an eerie similarity in Manson and Alamo's facial features.
