"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."

Ah, thanks. He looked familiar, but couldn't place him. It's a fun cast for sure!

Been rattlin' this one round the old noggin for a while -

Drive (1985)
Directed by William Friedkin

William Petersen - The Driver

Jennifer Jason Leigh - Irene

Peter Falk - Shannon

John Turturro - Standard

Frank Vincent - Nino

Kathleen Turner - Blanche

and Jerry Lewis - Bernie Rose

Blue Velvet

Logan Lerman - Jeffrey Beaumont

Eva Green - Dorothy Vallens

Woody Harrelson - Frank Booth

Saoirse Ronan - Sandy Williams

Stanley Tucci - Ben

How about...







I'll admit that this isn't actually my idea but it is a good one.
This is OK but I would re-think Wendell Pierce...terrible actor, surely there's someone else you could put in that role.

I don't know if Wendell Pierce is right for that role, but the dude is awesome. The Bunk!

Not sure how many of you have seen this one, but it's a fave of mine:

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution
Directed by Wes Anderson

Ralph Fiennes - Sherlock Holmes

Edward Norton - Dr. Watson

Jeff Goldblum - Dr. Sigmund Freud

F. Murray Abraham - Professor Moriarty

Bill Murray - Mycroft Holmes

Jessica Chaistain - Lola Devereaux

Jason Schwartzman - Lowenstein

I also have this idea of a film version for The Catcher in the Rye.

The Catcher In The Rye (1992):

Holden Caulfield: Christian Bale

Personally, I always thought Jake Gyllenhaal would have made an awesome Holden Caulfield, even if he is a little bit too old for the role now.

The Silence of the Lambs

Brie Larson - Clarice Starling

Viggo Mortensen - Dr. Hannibal Lecter

Courtney B. Vance - Jack Crawford

Billy Crudup - Dr. Chilton

Jake Gyllenhaal - James "Buffalo Bill" Gumb

and Frankie Faison as Barney

I find Jared Harris underwhelming and hammy a lot of the time.
