DL icon JENNIFER LAWRENCE to star in epic two-film "East of Eden"!

No, she is not playing the Julie Harris role! She is playing the Jo Van Fleet role!

Who would you like to see in the iconic James Dean role?

Either the revitalized Hayden Christensen or Justin Bieber. Nah, make that Louis Tomlinson of One Direction.

Well, the Jo van Fleet role is the much better role--she's basically playing evil incarnate. Van Fleet won an Oscar for that film; Harris did not.

Jane Seymour played the Cathy role in the 80s miniseries. I'd love to see Jennifer play a dark character.

Why do I feel JL lacks facial mobility? Is it injections or something?

$100 says Lawrence has never read the book or seen the movie.

Thank god they didn't hire Kristen Stewart.

Kristen will be playing a very important part. She will play one of the spoiled cabbages rotting in a railway freight car.

She's not a very good actress. Her face was much more interesting when she was younger, before the nose job.

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.
