Cate Blanchett as Dylan? Huh?

No, really.

And the guys in Venice love it.

I really think it's the casting coup of the century. And I mean any century. Totally original.

Cate's features straddles the line between the masuline and feminine (whatever that is..hehe), but I can almost visualise her as Dylan. Scrawny, jutted features.

Old news, old news. See:

The thing I find hard to imagine is Richard Gere playing Dylan.

km, reg: ya, she looks pretty plausible, no?

falstaff: you're back! ya, gere is more of a stretch, but the first 'huh' comes with blanchett. and then it gets more unbelievable. and then you hear that dylan's given his blessings (but what does he know? he sold his songs to victoria's secret.)

Falstaff said...

space bar: Yes, exactly. What really puzzles me is why Victoria's Secret wanted Dylan in the ad. I'm not a regular customer of VS (obviously) but I find it hard to believe that the association of their lingerie with the image of a leering Dylan is going to be good for sales.

fastaff: i know. in fact, i'm wondering if gere is supposed to be the lipsticked caricature the man's made of himself. might work, in some strange twisted way.
