    ABSOLUTELY.
    Nobody pulls off the "hapless shlub" character quite as well as Macy. Perfect.

    I like the casting, but I'd go with Lane Smith as Big Jim.

    Although probably a bit too old, when I read UTD, I pictured David Spade as Junior. John Goodman would be perfect for Big Jim, and as for Barrrrbie, that's a tough call.

    Ray McKinnon as Pastor Coggins, he played the Reverend in Season 1 of Deadwood, and was an amazing character.

    Big Jim Gregg Henry / Ian McShane
    Junior Ryan Kwanten / Ben Foster
    Barbie (No Name)
    Rusty Callum Keith Rennie
    Julia Natalie Portman
    Carter Keanu Reeves / Jeremy Renner
    Andy Sanders William Sanderson / William H. Macy
    Cox Brian Cox
    Burpee Garret Dillahunt

    A bit late in my response, but since I just finished the novel here are some of my ideas.
    Big Jim- Phillip Seymour Hoffman... he may be a bit young, but I like John Goodman and Hoffman seems like he can play someone even more morally corrupt than John Goodman

    Here are my choices for the Under the Dome Cast.
    Big Jim- Phillip Seymour Hoffman (maybe a bit young, but I can never see John Goodman as the bad guy)
    Barbie- Timothy Olyphant (remember he is supposed to be in his early-thirties 10+ years younger than Julia)
    Julia- I like Rachel Weisz for this
    Junior-I like Ben Foster or Joe Anderson as well
    Andy Sanders- William H Macy would be perfect
    The Chef- though he maybe too old I think Jackie Earle Hayley would be perfect
    Carter-?.. maybe Dax Shepard?
    Joe-Logan Lerman
    Rusty- Damien Lewis

    Nice kaskramstad...Jack Earl Haley is one of my favorite actors since Watchmen...I'm going to watch the new Nightmare on Elm Street on Halloween as a tribute to him
