Counterfeit Casting: Elizabeth Taylor
CANDIDATE #1: Kristin Scott Thomas
I've only seen The English Patient but I like what I saw from her. She reminded me of Taylor in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof since both played women stuck in dead end marriages.
I can't think of anything.
CANDIDATE #2: Marion Cotillard
Cotillard is someone I'm curious about with the way her career's going. She has this certain aura that, like Taylor, has people notice her.
Her accent might be a bit of a problem.
CANDIDATE #3: Rachel Weisz
Weisz is a good actress and knows how to handle a heavy role, judging by her work in The Constant Gardener.
I don't see much resemblance between Weisz and Taylor.
So who would you cast to play the violet-eyed legend?
