    I think it should be new, unknown actors. But they must have talent!

    It would be great to hear some concrete news on when this mini series is actually happening! Til then, it's fun to speculate on casting! I like a lot of suggestions on this board... others seem way too young or old for their respective parts if faithfulness to the novel is considered. <br><br>Here are some of my picks:<br>Barbie-Casey Affleck or Taylor Kitsch (I also like Timothy Olyphant but the character in the book is 30 years old so he might be a little too old)<br>Big Jim-John Goodman (I don't see how it could be anyone else but I guess we all have our imaginations based on our reading of the book.)<br>Junior-DJ Qualls (though I like the Ben Foster idea someone else suggested here)<br>Rusty Everett-Jason Lee <br>Linda Everett-Elizabeth Mitchell<br>Rose Twitchell-Bonnie Bedelia<br>Andrea-Frances Conroy<br>Peter Randolph-Joe Flaherty<br>Phil "Chef" Bushey-John Hawkes<br>Sammy Bushey-Lauren Ambrose or Busy Phillipps<br>Andy Sanders-Martin Donovan<br>Duke Perkins-Albert Brooks<br>Brenda Perkins-Faye Dunaway<br>Joe McClatchey-Joel Courtney<br>Benny Drake-Zachary Gordon<br>Norrie-Kiernan Shipka<br>Piper Libby-Connie Britton<br>Thurston Marshall-Willem Dafoe<br>Carolyn Sturges-Olivia Thirlby<br>Carter Thibodeaux-Rory Cochrane<br>Twitch-Mark Ruffalo<br><br><br><br>I really like the suggestion of Dana Delaney for Julia Shumway and Katey Sagal for Jackie Wettington. <br>

    I love casting King's books in my mind when I read them.

    YES, William H. Macy was my choice for Andy as well...I could just imagine him in the scene where he and the druggie are sitting around acting crazy.

    Also JOHN TRAVOLTA as Big Jim!!!!

    From another thread I posted in...

    I've given this a lot of thought....here are some choices I think would be great

    Baaarbie - Jake Gyllenhaal

    Julia - Anne Heche (w/long hair)

    Rusty - Jon Hamm

    Linda - Elizabeth Banks (She had a great dramatic role in The Next 3 Days opposite Russell Crowe)

    Chef Bushey - Jeremy Davies

    Thurse - Dave "Gruber" Allen (the guidance councelor from Freaks & Geeks)

    Junior - Sam Whitwer (I remember him from an episode of Dexter, turns out he was also in The Mist. Kismet?)

    Burpee - Johnny Depp (w/a pencil thin mustache and his hair slicked back, lol)

    Brenda Perkins - Susan Sarandon (or someone like that)

    Big Jim Rennie - Stephen Root (I pictured him the entire time I read the book)

    Some neat choices. Stephen Root as Big Jim--totally! Hah, Gruber...I remember the ol Higgins Boys and Gruber show on the old Comedy Channel. I loved that show. I don't think I'd wanna spend the whole movie lookin at Jake Gyllenhaal, though. Ugh, I hate him almost as much as I hate Shia Laboooof.

    You know who'd make a great Chef Bushey? Just lose the 'h' and there's your man. Nah, he's too old, and his teeth are too fantastic for a methhead.
