    The cast were perfect. I wouldn’t change anyone. Or maybe McGregor. But I’m not sure.

    I would DEFINITELY replace Benedict Cumberbatch. I may be alone on this but that man can’t act for his life most of the times. I don’t see the potential or the talent that everyone else seems to think there is. My choice would probably be James McAvoy.

    Violet: Joan Rivers
    Barbra: Tony Collette
    Mattie Fae: Margo was exactly what I envisioned for the character, so I wouldn’t change her.

    Haven’t seen the film but have read the play and Sissy Spacek comes to mind for Violet.

    I have some weird choices, but I feel like they could work.

    Jane Fonda as Violet Weston
    Jennifer Garner as Barbara Weston-Fordham
    Kevin Spacey as Bill Fordham
    Gary Oldman as Charles Aiken
    Abigail Breslin as Jean Fordham (same)
    Michael Shannon as “Little Charles”
    Reese Witherspoon as Karen Weston
    Meryl Streep as Mattie Fae Aiken (better suited for this role)
    Paul Giamatti as Steve Heidebrecht (to make it even creepier)
    Amy Adams as Ivy Weston
    John Goodman as Beverly Weston
    Misty Upham as Johnna Monevata (same)

    Tracy Letts initially objected in casting British actors for A:OC.  Although Andrea Riseborough (as Karen)  could have been the 3rd Brit but had to beg off (according to early press release) due to scheduling conflicts.  And Tom Wilkinson (as Beverly) could have been the 4th Brit.

    Shirley Maclaine, Helen Mirren, Sally Field, Melissa Leo were said to have pitched-campaigned & expressed great interest for the Violet role.  In one interview, Melissa Leo was quoted saying “she would kill to see Meryl’s take on Violet”.

    Others considered & talked about for roles were:

    Dianne Wiest as Mattie Fae

    Jim Carrey as Steve

    Renee Zellweger as Ivy

    Chloe Moretz as Jean

    Jeremy Renner as Bill or Little Charles

    Michael Shannon as Bill or Little Charles

    Gary Cole as Steve (reprising his role in London stage version)

    I’d replace McGregor and add Jude Law in is place. Other than that keep everyone else.

    If Kathy Bates had played Matti Fae, she would’ve been on the supporting actress Oscar list this year for sure.

    I couldn’t agree more. He was terribly miscast, and couldn’t pull of the look of a middle aged unemployed loser with what a pretty boy he is.

    Other than that, I really loved the cast. Most especially Streep, Martindale, Nicholson, Cooper, Upton and Roberts. 

    Someone brought up the idea that Melissa Leo would’ve made a good Violet, and I can actually see her playing off that role extremely well.

    Violet Weston – Faye Dunaway
    Barbara Weston-Fordham – Robin Wright
    Karen Weston – Toni Collette
    Ivy Weston – Vera Farmiga
    Mattie Fae Aiken – Kathy Bates
    Charlie Aiken – Ed Harris
    Bill Fordham – Clive Owen
    Jean Fordham – Elle Fanning
    “Little Charles” Aiken – Michael Shannon
    Steve Heidebrecht – Paul Giamatti
    Johnna Monevata – Misty Upham was perfect here
    Beverly Weston – Al Pacino (since it’s basically a cameo role I think he would work, probably not if it was a bigger presence)
