Your Turn

Renee Zellweger has been cast to play Judy Garland over the last few months of Judy's life. Who would you have picked for the role?

Yesterday, a clown held open a door for it. I thought that was a very kind jester.

Ann with an E

And as a JG fan that is HORRRRRRIBLE casting unless Renee's audition stunned the hell out of producers, I just don't see it!

scarlett johansson.

Not Renee for sure. I will give more thought to finding a young, cute dark haired girl to grow up and play a drug ravaged middle aged woman.

Steve Landry said...

Anne Hathaway looks a lot like Judy Garland

sandybrook said...

Lilo fits in a way....I think Juliette Lewis.

Boots said...

Anne Hathaway, no doubt

Joel Theriot said...

GaGa.

I wouldn't do it at all. Whoever came up with this idea deserves to be caned.

Find an unknown who can sing

shakey said...

just sayin' - I like Elizabeth Perkins for this.

Maybe Michelle Williams, but she already did Marilyn Monroe.

Julianne Moore

I think Renee MIGHT do great, bc she is a good actress, and she was very good in CHicago..if only she wouldn't do do that pouty mouth. Otherwise , Anna hathaway. The best would have been a young Liza Minnelli...but i don't see someone like this..maybe someone from Teathre?

Hathaway and Portman are both in their mid-30s - if this is the last few months of Garland's life, she was 46-7, and looked near 60. Hathaway would be a great choice to play a younger Garland, but I don't see her playing her in her final days.

Liza Minnelli

Nathan Lane!!
He did a good job in that movie with robin williams

Judy looked rough as hell the last 1/3rd of her life: http://i0.heartyhosting.com/www.nationalenquirer.com/wp-content/uploads/old_neq/article_images/judy_stry_2.jpg?resize=480%2C600


I would use Tara Reid.

Judy Davis

Renee would be good, she'll nail the fragility perfectly though Judy Davis would be brilliant.

Shawn McGuire said...

Meryl Streep tosee if she can really do anything
Toni Collette for a realistic match
Viola Davis for a totally mind bending twist.

A junkie whose life of vice showed after she was 30? Lilo is my choice, she has more experience in looking rough way before 30, though.

Someone who can actually sing. If you don't have the pipes, you aren't going to be believable no matter what type of makeup they slap on you.

Spiffypaws said...

Liza! If the lighting was right, it would work.

Glitter said...

Agree with Judy Davis. She played Garland and did a great job.

texasrose said...

The last few months of her life?? Zellwegger looks much too young. Although she was only 47 or so when she died they need to find a 60 yo.

Gaga could do it, she has the voice and inflections. She’s a lot younger but could be roughed up a little to play the part.

just sayin' said...

i agree, judy davis has the chops for this role.

trixie comments said...

Sheridan Smith. She can do her own singing.

TellMeLies said...

Judy Davis, obviously

MC98033 said...

Appearance has little to do with it, hair and eye color is easy to change and they can alter appearance so much now with computer effects (every single film & TV actor is digitally enhanced now- see this article: http://mashable.com/2014/12/01/hollywood-secret-beauty-procedure/#w586MiERfmqM

so it really boils down to acting talent and Renee has that in spades.
