    Labor Day will hit the theatres soon and I couldn’t help but notice the how well casted was the younger version of Josh Brolin character (physically I mean). Their resemblance is uncanny. 

     

    The casting of Saoirse Ronan/Romola Garai/Vanessa Redgrave in Atonement was also well done.
     

    Can you think of some other examples of inspiring cast?  Or, on the other hand, not so inspiring? (Like that chick who’s playing the young Jessica Lange in the new season of American Horror Story, yuck!)

    Speaking of Josh Brolin, I thought he nailed his role in ‘Men in Black 3’ as the younger version of Tommy Lee Jones.

    Sorry I just realized that this was the Oscar thread.  I will then add Whoopi Goldberg as the older Celie and Akosua Busia as the younger Celie in The Color Purple.

    Hm, I suppose Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis in Looper?

    Also, I didn’t see The Debt, but I heard that some praise was given to Jessica Chastain for her portrayal of a younger Helen Mirren.

    Josh Brolin has something quite amazing about him and I don’t know what or why.

    I don’t care that this is the Oscar thread, because you seriously picked the BEST example of this ever displayed on screen.  BRAVA!

    I don’t think Saoirse Ronan and Romola Garai bore much resemblance to each other. But Vanessa Redgrave did to either of them. She was also a convincing older version of Claire Danes in Evening, which leads to the inevitable resemblance of Mamie Gummer and Meryl Streep.

    Jessica Chastain and Helen Mirren in The Debt didn’t work for me.

    Lindsey Gort has been cast as young Samantha Jones in The Carrie Diaries. And that’s perfect casting.

    Jason Reitman, after a Labor Day screening in Toronto I was at, said he couldn’t believe his eyes when Tom Lipinski read for the part of young Frank.

    The resemblance is so great that a few people in the audience thought it was the result of makeup and CGI.

    Doesn’t really count, because they’re sisters, but Taissa Farmiga played the younger version of Vera Farmiga in the film Higher Ground.

    I thought they did a pretty good job in the great gatsby, although it seems to have partly been makeup and wigs

    They did an amazing job in Peggy Sue Got Married.
