Me as Phyllis Hammerow, Miami's answer to Me.

I did it in The Hours, I could do it here too.

barbra is way too ugly to be Blanche

Barbara Parkins is in.

by Anonymousreply 1010/04/2015

I would love to watch Barbra's interpretation of Blanche. She has done southern before with Hello Dolly! But of course she would only have to sit on the one side of the table. Liza as Trudy would be fantastic, and would end with all the girls doing a fabulous production number at the High School reunion party.

Elton John would make a better Coco.

Ted Danson as Miles.

OP can't be serious. Who are these people?

Christine Lahti as Dorothy (she's 5'10"!)

Kim Basinger as Blanche

Geena Davis as Rose

by Anonymousreply 1510/05/2015

BUMP for more dream casting of the GG movie!

James Wolk as junior cop spying on the next door neighbors.

by Anonymousreply 1610/06/2015

I always thought you could stick the First Wives Club or 9 to 5 casts in here pretty easily.

Bette Midler as Dorothy Goldie Hawn as Blanche Diane Keaton as Rose

Or, Lily Tomlin as Dorothy Dolly Parton as Blanche Jane Fonda as Rose (although she could make a great Blanche, too)

And, I don't know, Valerie Harper as Sophia? They were always such sound alikes. Dan Hedaya as Sal. Trying to think of a good Stan - who's a lovable yutz?

by Anonymousreply 1710/06/2015

Stanley Tucci as Stan.

by Anonymousreply 1810/06/2015

Just take the Hot in Cleveland quartet and give them GG scripts.

Wendie Malick - Blanche

Jane Leeves - Dorothy

Valerie Bertinelli - Rose

Betty White - Sophia

by Anonymousreply 1910/06/2015

OT... anyone remember the episode where Blanche's husband's illegitimate son comes to town?

Have we talked about his massive bulge and ass yet?

by Anonymousreply 2010/07/2015

Oh, shit. Who knew George's bastard son was Paul Young from Desperate Housewives?

by Anonymousreply 2110/07/2015

The bastard son's bulge...hmmm But I digress! I think Midler would be great as Blanche, tarty but on her own terms (that's probably on Midler's calling card!) Haven't seen anyone who could match Bea Arthur's delivery, there was only one Bea! I think Dame Judi could easily pull off Sophia. And for Rose? who cares, she wasn't funny. and Diana Ross?? Common...seriously?!

by Anonymousreply 2210/07/2015

Dorothy.....Kate Jackson

Blanche.....Jacklyn Smith

Rose......Cheryl Ladd

Sophia......Joyce Bulifant

Why are ElderGayz obsessed with this show?

I've seen it in reruns and it's funny but not groundbreaking or anything.


by Anonymousreply 2401/02/2016

Dorothy - Anjelica Huston

Rose - Goldie Hawn

Blanche - Jessica Lange

Sophia - Olympia Dukakis

Rose Nylund wouldn't have a biracial daughter in a remake. St. Olaf doesn't allow interracial marriages.

by Anonymousreply 2601/03/2016

The only way I'd even acknowledge OP's absurd idea of a reboot is if this were the cast:

Dorothy: Julie Andrews

Sophia: Angela Lansbury

Rose: Helen Reddy

Blanche: Lesley Ann Warren

by Anonymousreply 2701/03/2016

Who should play that anti-Semite bitch Barbara Thorndyke in the remake?

by Anonymousreply 2801/03/2016

R28: How about Vanessa Redgrave? Won't be a stretch for her.

by Anonymousreply 2901/03/2016

Oh please

by Anonymousreply 3001/03/2016

Melissa McCarthy or Aidy Bryant could play Blanche's fat daughter in the remake. Also who could play Blanche's slutty niece Lucy? Maybe real life whore Whitney Cummings.

And when she becomes a skinny redhead, I'm still available.

Octavia Spencer as the older black woman that Dorothy's son marries.

by Anonymousreply 3301/03/2016

If this was for for stage or television, I think G would be perfect as Dorothy.

Mary Steenburgen as Blanche's sister Charmaine.

Kiernan Shipka as the pregnant teen Mary that is taken by the Golden Girls

Can't recreate or improve upon the original. Stop it now.

If Caitlyn played Dorothy she could use Bea's original wardrobe.

by Anonymousreply 3801/03/2016

Some choices for Rose = Dawn Wells, Georgia Engel & my personal fav Dolly Parton who seems to be surprising similar to Rose in many ways:small town stories, perceived innocence & hides her true hair at all times.

by Anonymousreply 3901/03/2016

Dolly could never play ditzy or dumb.

by Anonymousreply 4001/03/2016

Joan Collins as Barbara Thorndyke. Because nobody plays "cunty" better than Joan Collins.

by Anonymousreply 4101/04/2016

The only actress that comes to mind (other than the younger 50's actress that played young Dorothy) is Geena Davis. She has the height, smarts, comedic chops & with her plastic surgery changes to her face I can easily see her sitting home on a Saturday night without a date. She's a perfect name for the role.

Those people are too old! Betty/Bea were 63 when Golden Girls started. Rue was only 51.

Miss Ross does not participate in ensemble projects. Miss Ross is the only star in any movie she appears. For future reference, please do not look directly at Miss Ross when you see her, and when you are dismissed from her presence always bow repeatedly while backing out of the room. Thankyouverymuch!

by Anonymousreply 5208/01/2020

Elliot Gould as Stan is a great call. Not so sure about these others.

Maybe Holland Taylor as Barbara Thorndyke?
