Who's Playing Whom In The Hitchcock Movie?

Categories: Film

Good evening. There's a biopic being done about the portly, macabre genius who directed one-word classics like Psycho, Vertigo, Rebecca, Suspicion, Rope, and Spellbound, among other films.

So which stars are dropping by for a paycheck? Here's the answer to the mystery:

MISTAKE. Hitch should have been played by the wonderful Timothy Spall who is easily as good an actor and who looked exactly like Hitch when Spall played Winston Churchill in The King's Speech.

Yes! They should do him up like Churchill again and he'd make a great Hitch.

Excuisse me...but I still don't understand why Scarlett Johansson is a star...okay, she was "right" in "Lost in Translation" but what else?? (not counting the perfectly suited (for her, then) "Lolita" which she's now aged past).

She was good in those Woody Alan movies.  Pretty, she can say the lines, etc.

Scarlett is an Avenger! She's the Black Widow in the biggest movie of the year.My favorite was Girl with a Pearl Earring.She also won a Best Featured Actress Tony in 2010.Her pulchritude is of magnitude.

She's the female Matthew McConaughey. The very words "Scarlett Johansson in" chill my blood.

Who is James D'Arcy?  I looked him up but haven't seen any of his movies.  In the above picture I thought, hmmm, not really.  But then I saw another photo and he looks almost exactly like Tony Perkins.  Jessica Biel?  C'mon!  But it isn't that big a part anyway.

In other casting news, Jean Smart just told a reporter that she'll be coming back to Broadway soon and will announce what it is as soon as it's official. Broadwayworld chatters are buzzing that she might be Miss Hannigan in "Annie."

ScarJo as Janet Leigh is a pretty inspired choice. Hopkins? Meh.

This actually looks good, except for Jessica Biel, who isn[t much of an actress.
