Don't Know Dickens

Charles Dickens, that is.

Playing the Parts: The Mystery of Edwin Drood

Edwin Drood Elijah Wood (He’s young, confident, and easy to like.)

Rosa Dakota Fanning (Young, fair, etc.)

Jasper Robin Williams (He doesn’t seem an obvious bad guy, but he can be creepy.)

Durdles Johnny Depp (with some aging)

Nevelle Landless Liam Hemsworth

Helena Landless Miley Cyrus

Mr. Crisparkle Ian McKellen

Mr. Grewgious Danny Kaye

Deputy Haley Joel Osment (the young version who played in the Ransom of Red Chief)

Who knew casting was such hard work? I think I’ll stick to teaching!

  1. Love these ideas. I think Robin Williams could pull Jasper off!

  2. I never would have thought of Miley Cyrus for Helena, but she is an inspired choice. I like it!
