If they ever remake the film of MAME...

...I think CZJ would do an admirable job.

But who would we cast as Vera and Gooch?

the way Renee is looking these days, she might make a good Agnes Gooch.

Agree, but she and Hugh Jackman need to do "Blood Brothers" soon. Her husband is an Academy Award winning producer, he should get it done.

I still think she should do Gypsy.

Lens Dunham as Gooch

Alan Cumming as Vera

Hugh Jackman as Beau

She does her best work when playing bitches, I can't see her as the loveable Mame.

She might make a good Mama Rose, though. She has that bitchy side, and her voice and look are right for the part.

CZJ isn't very good at humor, unfortunately.

That's why the casting of Vera is so important. If she had someone so arch and ball-busting that would make CZJ laugh, it would become a winning combination.

I like Jackman as Beau. He's a year younger that CZJ is supposed to be. Does that work?

Meryl as Mame, Glenn as Vera.

OMG!!! That's so funny. Brilliant!!!!

Hugh does rugged and dapper well, so he'd be a good Beau.

About 20 years ago, Cher was talking about doing MAME or AUNTIE MAME. There was talk about updating the plot to the 1960s

Kristen Chenowirth (sorry about spelling) as Gooch

She has the comic timing and the acting chops. But would anyone really buy her as an ugly duckling...and more to the point, a virginal ugly duckling?

Christine Ebersole, Mame, and Bebe Neuwirth, Vera, but on Broadway.

I say wait twenty years and get Jennifer Lawrence. Or Emma Stone.

I used to think Madonna would have made a good Mame in the 90s, with Sandra Bernhard as Vera.

Which reminds me of an old MTV commercial that had Madonna and Courtney Love (well, two old ladies dressed like them) doing a version of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
