Just recently watched the mini-series with Jane Seymour. She was fantastic, really surprised me. Never knew she could play evil so well
Crap. I love Steinbeck. I've read the novel. Jennifer Lawrence is the worst possible choice for that role. The two part mini series on TV did a better job of adhering to the storyline of the novel. That book is a tour de force, a masterpiece. People should read the book. It is awesome.
YES Jane Seymour was wonderful in the mini-series!
Jane seems to play evil really well. Watch her in "Frankenstein The True Story" She is amazing.
R9 that's the version with the delicious Hart Bochner. There's no need for another version, especially with Jennifer Lawrence.
Someone in their early 20's.
DL fave James Franco owns this role!
R14, someone in his early 20's.
First off, it's someONE. Second, we know the gender.
Although I greatly enjoyed the book and earlier film... I have to say that Cathy is a badly written character. She's supposed to be the personification of evil, but apparently Steinbeck didn't really understand evil because all he has her do is fuck around. What she really represents is a male author's fear of female sexuality.
The book manages to be good in spite of her, but I can't say a film will be. And I doubt that Lawrence is the kind of actress who can overcome weak material.
As I recall, we only see Cathy through Adam's eyes.
