I heard from a really good source today that Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts have both dropped out. After Streep completes the Margaret Thatcher movie in England she'll shoot a few weeks of a Tina Fey movie (playing her mother), then watch the first of her children get married (Mamie), take off the summer and do either a movie called HOPE SPRINGS or a comedy about a Home Shopping-type channel co-starring Oprah Winfrey and Sandra Bullock.

I'm glad. Now maybe they can cast it the way it should have been casts in the first place.
If that still means Dunagan and Morton don't get to be in the movie, they should still cast it intelligently:
Violet - Joanne Woodward or Angela Lansbury
Barbara - Laurie Metcalf

There is no reason violet can't be in her 80s, she is from the greatest generation as the play makes clear. The stage directions say she is 65 but it is inconsistent with the script itself. Hence, Estelle parsons, well into her 80s was perfect in the role on broadway

"those names will set the box office on fire!
DL casting threads never fail to make me laugh."
Hit movies, even oscar winning best pictures, have been known to go the route of casting the right people even though they are not box office draws. In addition to Driving Miss Daisy, already noted, consider Amadeus, another huge hit from a play that went on to win the oscar.
Tom Hulce and F. Murray Abraham (who, like Jessica Tandy went on to win the oscar) were not, nor have they ever been, box office.
I would assume, r6, that you also would have laughed if someone had suggested the unknown, or all but, Louise Fletcher for Cuckoo's Nest, Kathy Bates for Misery, or Geoffrey Rush for Shine - all three of which seemed to have worked out ok both at the box office and on the red carpet.
The truth is that sometimes powerful, right on casting of the right person in the right role not only makes the movie come alive in a way it otherwise wouldn't, but audiences respond with result of word of mouth box office and the movie is a huge hit.
Not only that, if your logic were the guide, there would be no way anyone could ever become a film star, because the only people getting hot star-making roles would already be stars.

I would like to ask Letts how, in spite of his stage directions, Violet could possibly only be 65 years old. At least if the play is, as it appears by all other counts, textual and otherwise, to be set today.
One of the most important, funniest and most memorable scenes has Violet's daughters questioning whether their parents were, as is commonly held, part of "the greatest generation."
The greatest generation, a phrase coined by Tom Brokaw in 1998, describes people who fought World War II and their contemporaries.
If Violet is 65 in 2011, she would have been born in 1946. World War II was over in 1946.
Even if the play were set in 1999 (and there is no reason to think it was, far from it), shortly after "the greatest generation" was first coined, any 65 year old character in it would have been born in 1934, and still would have been pre-pubescent at the end of World War II, not a member of the generation who conquered the Nazis.
Not only is Violet one of the few great characters right for a very old woman in recent years. Not only is there no reason she shouldn't be played by a Woodward, Lansbury, or, as she was brilliantly on stage, by a Parsons, but it would appear that for the play to really work, she needs to be played by an actress who conceives of her character as being that age, even if she is, like Dunagan, somewhat, or Streep, significantly, younger.

[R6] is such a moron. Everyone in Hollywood admits now that a name doesn't mean box office anymore. It's more often a flop than not for serious fare. Rather than try to overpay stars to fill out the entire cast, you cast a few in key roles (like Timberlake in Social Network).
The Hollywood model is commercial sci-fi, action, animated, and the occasional rom-com = mega-hit. Serious films = low-budget, need awards to be a hit.
If they're thinking - and Hollywood rarely does - they would cast with an eye on who is best likely to get an award.
Dunagan should still play the matriarch, but I can only see Ellen Burstyn as her best runner up.
