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?

I love KST (you know I do) but it's all Rachel for me. Maybe the resemblance isn't striking, but physicality wise I can see her doing this.ReplyDelete
You can see that Rachel has some Liz Taylor capability when she played in "Suddenly Last Summer":ReplyDelete
Bill Murray had once said that Saoirse Ronan has a Elizabeth Taylor-like aura around her. I like the fact that they are both gorgeous child actors with mesmerising eyes. I'm gonna go the Murray-way and choose Ronan... even though she has a long career ahead of her.ReplyDelete
Definitely NOT KST. She is a great actress, but her appearance, far from Liz's, is just a big "no". They just don't resemble much. I would vote for Cotillard. Btw, weren't there rumors that Weisz is actually going to play Taylor in a biopic??ReplyDelete
