Casting Cass

Postby adamcarr » Wed Jul 29, 2009 7:40 pm

Hey Guys,

Here's a question for everyone (as I'm sure we'd all love to see a Cass Elliot Bio-Pic one day), WHO WOULD YOU CAST AS CASS ELLIOT??, I remember many years ago when there was word about a Mamas & Papas Movie based on Michelle's book "CALIFORNIA DREAMIN", that they were looking at Carnie Wilson to play Cass and Chyanna Phillips to play Michelle.
Looking around at the talent today my first thought would be ......

NIKKI BLONSKY (Hairspray)

Who would you cast ?????

Cheers,
adam :roll:

My vote is for Lesley Boone of Ed fame. She's very Cass-esque and being a trained singer she could handle the part quite well.

Excellent suggestion Dunhill, I just googled to have a look at her and your right, she would be great, only prob I thought with Nikki is that she may be alittle too young.
Cheers,
Adam.

Hi guys,
What about the girl who oriiganated the role in the Hairspray musical on broadway? I know her first name is Marissa, but I'm having a little bit of trouble with the last name. She was in that movie Fever Pitch with Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore. She played one of Drew's friends. Now, she's on that reality show Dance Your A** Off on the Oxygen network. Oh well... Just my little old opinion.
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

Nicole,

I was thinking of the same girl. Hope things get rolling since befoe we know it any and all choices will be too old to play the parts, which Michelle had pointed out had happened in the last 25 years.

Hi John & Nicole,

I've been waiting to see what you guys thought, and your right, MARISSA JARET WINOKUR would be awesome as Cass.

Cheers,
Adam. :)

personally I would like to see someone that isn't famous. I think though it may not draw as many people as it would should it have nikki blonsky or someone like that, It would be nice to see a fresh face.

The singer from the UK named Adele could play Cass in a film role.
