    There's a thread already for casting UTD but the focus was on Dale Barbara which is why I've allowed this one to expand the cast list suggestions.

    Great cast you came up with mrblonde especially like the pick of Ben Foster as Junior but when reading UTD I always pictured Gerald McRaney as Big Jim

    I like the list and I think it's funny that two of your suggestions were the exact same ones I had when reading. Clifton Collins Jr. and Ben Foster. I had a thought about Big Jim that maybe didn't fit one hundred percent in the physical category but J.K. Simmons voice came to mind while reading. I can't explain why, but I just thought that it was how he should sound.

    I think someone posted this in another thread, but almost immediatley I pictured Brian Dennehey for Big Jim, though he might now be a bit too old for the part. BD is built like a bull which is how I pictured Big Jim.

    Guys,

    Check out the Kid's Animated movie "Bee Movie." John Goodman voices a lawyer in it. I bet you can find it on Youtube. If that doesn't convince you he is Big Jim nothing will.

    Thanks for comments.
