For the last few days people on Twitter have been suggesting the cast for the film version of Plotting for Grown-ups. I’m listing them here so you can click on the comments at the bottom and have your say. Don’t be shy. You can remain anonymous.
Casting suggestions in order of popularity so far
Sally – Meryl Streep; Emma Thompson (an interesting and inspired suggestion, but she’d have to look older)
Kit – Pierce Brosnan
Both contenders have very strong support. Some think Brosnan is too clean cut/smooth to be Kit. Some think that Hugh Jackman doesn’t have the yummy quotient of Brosnan. I am now havering between the two – it’s that waistcoat that does it.
Wendy – Jennifer Saunders
Sarah Alexander (with hefty aging make-up),
or lastly, self-nominated Sally Pepper of BBC Radio Derby (but only if Hugh Laurie plays Richard)
Richard – Hugh Laurie
or James Fleet
Pippa – Patricia Hodge
Lindsay Duncan in up-tight mode,
or Ruby Wax (I am hoping this last suggestion was a joke.)
There are an awful lot of lurkers amongst you who read my blog and never comment. Your time has come. Vote now!
Some people have trouble with the comments thingy on Blogger – it can eat comments for breakfast, dinner and tea – and I have no trace of them, so if your comment doesn’t show up, send your votes to me at infoatdelicatelynuanceddotcom (take out the at and the dot) and I will post your comment for you.
