Subject: She's Come Undone-Wally Lamb

Written By: Katluver on 04/26/13 at 9:34 am

The book came out back in the 90s and it's still a big hit today.
I don't know how many of you have read it, but it's my favorite book of all time. I am actually obsessed with it and have reread it many time.
For those who haven't read it, I don't want to spoil the book, but I have heard rumours that it's going to be made into a movie.
Usually the books are better than the films, but I would so like to see a movie made.
I've heard rumours that Reese Witherspoon is going to be the star. There are so many people that can't see her as Dolores, but I actually think she would be very good in this role, particularly in that Burger King scene.
There are so many colorful characters in this lengthy book so I've been thinking about the casting, and have come up with a few ideas. In terms of the age of the celebrities, I'm sure that can be worked with in the 21st century with technology, make-up...(just look at 90210!)
I have made up a mental list:
Dolores Price---Reese Witherspoon
Dolores Price (10-13)---?
Dolores Price (4-6)---?
Bernice Price-Holland---Winona Ryder
Tony Price---Mark Wahlberg
Grandma Holland---?
Jack Speight---Brad Pitt
Dottie---Jeanne Garofalo
Kippy---Katie Holmes
Dante---Ethan Hawke (dye the hair)
Mr. Pucci---Steven Zahn (looks like I'm reunited the cast from Reality Bites)
Thayer---Jason Segel

A few adjustments and add-ons:

Dolores Price (ages 10-13)--Morgan Lily (could pass as a younger Reese)
Mrs. Nord (Jeanette's, Dolores's childhood friend, mother)---Kristen Davis
Grandma Holland----Sally Field (would need to actually look older, which they were able to do in Forrest Gump)
Roberta---Meryl Streep (that woman is versatile so I'm sure she could pull it off)
Pysyk twins---Willow Shields and her twin sister
Connie (superette owner)---Roseanne Barr
Larry the Wallpaper Man (he did have an influential role)---Paul Rudd
Ruth (Larry's Wife)----Drew Barrymore
Kippy--Mila Kunis
Eric---Ashton Kutcher
Mr.Pucci---Ben Stiller
Mr.Pucci's friend---Steven Zahn
Allyson---Kristen Stewart
