POLL: WFE Casting of Marlena

I think some of us agree that while Reese may pull it off, she still didn't seem "right" for Marlena.

Who would you have cast instead?

  • Marion Cotillard. Don't ask me why, she's just who I pictured when I initially read it.

  • So I've been considering reading this book.  What is the boards overall opinion of it? A definite rec, or just another good book?  Which would you read next, this or start Hunger Games?

    Thanks!

  • It's fantastic. Seriously brilliant.

    It's a standalone, not a series, and it's not YA lit like Twilight or HG or MI are. Just fabulous, seriously. Read it.

  • I have never been good at thinking of actors for books. I just think she is too old and I don't understand why they couldn't dye her hair. The book clearly states that her hair is too dark to be blonde and we get a a platinum blonde. Throws me off.

  • I'm crap at actor placement but alix is spot on that Marion Cotillard would have been brilliant. Definitely the closest to what I pictured.

    Reese's blonde hair totally throws me. But then again, I don't really think Reese looks good as anything but a blonde.

  • How much older was Marlena than Jacob? Reese is beautiful, but she does look older than RP. I think she has 10 years on him. I can't think of anyone else to fill the role - though Alix's suggestion of Marion Cotillard is a good one - so I guess I'm just useless on this one.

  • I kept picturing Ginnifer Goodwin or the girl that played Anne Boleyn on (The Tudors I can never remember her name!) or Maggie Gyllenhal. In my head she was always brunette so the blonde throws me right off.

    This. I completely agree. I love Reese but she is just not Marlena. There's no way.
