    The ladies listed were all considered (or something like that) according to at least one of the 4 sites trivia sections: IMDB, Turner Classic Movies database, not starring . com, or wikipedia for the role of Joanna in “Kramer vs. Kramer”

    If Meryl Streep had not been an option who would you have chosen regardless of the details in which they were not chosen (like scheduling conflicts, etc.)???   I found a total of 8 names associated with casting of this role.

    It’s hard imagining someone else in that role, but it really could have gone in different directions depending on the actress. I could see Diane Keaton being a very interesting choice, and an unsurprising one given the success of Annie Hall.

    I picked Diane Keaton as well.  Danner & Sarandon would have been great choices as well.  Duke & Fonda too for that matter.  I could suppose Hawn might do the role justice.  Jackson (one of the productions top choices and actually cast before Streep! – “Charlie’s Angels” contract got in the way) & Dey I guess I’ve not seen their acting prowess on full display, so I can’t really imagine them here.

    Danner, Keaton, and Sarandon could all have done a great job.

     I’d love to see what Goldie Hawn might have done with that part. That’s like envisioning Anna Faris playing Ophelia. Both are gifted actors and playing largely against type may have been terrific.
