    With all this renewed interest since the "Epic" version is currently running on cable, who would YOU cast if "The Godfather" was being made today?

    I haven't started my list, but would love to hear what you guys are thinking. Thought about it last night when I was watching, thinking maybe Hope Davis or Joan Allen could play uptight WASPs like Kay.

    Hope Davis & Joan Allen are both excellent choices for Kay. I always felt Diane Keaton was the weakest acting link in the GF but I'm probably in the minority on that.

    Hmmm, have to think about this one.

    No Italians... Just lots of pasty Jewish actors, knowing how Hollywood casts these days. Paul Rudd. Jude Law. It would be an abomination.

    In order to be inclusive and diverse, I would cast all of the Sicilians with black guys.

    Not to mention historically correct.

    He could probably pull it off. He may be a batshit crazy narcissist but the guy can act.

    I meant this in a more "serious manna," but I guess there's no harm in imagining a wack pack version of the movie LOL!!
