Oh...me too! I have loved DS ever since "The Eye of the Needle"! He is great, even when playing a creepy character. Did you see "An American Haunting"?

Ah, it was his appearance in the video for Kate Bush's 'Cloudbusting' that did it for me all those years ago. But yes, I have seen 'An American Haunting' and I did think of his performance in that movie when I agreed he'd be good for Craddock. Similar kind of theme to the role, similar hypocrisy and charm and underlying evil of the character... Heart Shaped Box will be a much much better movie though. Well, it had better be!

Ooo...didn't even think about Donald Sutherland. Another good one! He'd be great. I'm not sure about Gary Oldman, as much as I love him as an actor. I think I'd have to see him in make up and costume to buy him as an aging rock star.


I just think that the guy is so talented that he would be perfect for the role of Jude. Someone both charismatic and wearied by their troubles. I really see Oldman in that role.

Another one for Craddock, Clint Eastwood. Such a good actor, and him letting loose as a sicko villain would be something special.

Geez HC...You're good at this. You should be a casting agent! Clint Eastwood would also be good, although I'm leaning toward DS. I definitely think Craddock should be "larger than life" and both DS and CE could fill the bill. I wish there were more news about the movie. I check the web every now and then to see if there is any news but I haven't heard anything new. :(

Ok, after reading EVERYONE's ideas I have this:

I was thinking Gary Oldman, just because he can transform into any character he's playing, and he's no longer Gary Oldman. But after reading the Jason Patric idea, I found this picture and it made me think he'd be great for the role - of course, I've loved him since Lost Boys!

I like that McHattie guy for Craddock, I think that's how I pictured him.

I have to think LOTS more on the rest of the cast. I'd like to get my own ideas, but after reading everyone elses, it's too hard. I'm gonna go away and think and come back :P

With that beard I can totally see Jason Patrick as Jude...especially if he grew his hair out some. Wow...I wish we fans could have some input into the casting. Wouldn't that be cool?

Yep, that's how Jude will be in my mind now. At least until we see the movie! Maybe the casting people will read all of this and take it into consideration...who knows!

I'm all about the wishful thinking!!!

Hi all!! I'm new to the board, sharing my first post with all of you. ( ::sniff sniff:: ::tear:: ::aww I'm having a moment:: ) I am one to have absolutely outlandish ideas. Bearing that in mind, when I first started reading "Heart Shaped Box", Jude formed in my head as, Robert Bartleh Cummings. Otherwise, better known as Rob Zombie. He just has that, dare I say it, Goth presence about him. Not to mention his affinity with the macabre.

HAve at it and let me know what you think :wink:
I want to embrace my desire to feel the rhythm,
to feel connected enough to step aside and
weep like a widow to feel inspired to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty to bathe in the fountain
to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

Hi Learian! Welcome!

Rob Zombie certainly looks the part but can he act? I don't know that I've ever seen him act in anything...I did see "House of a Thousand Corpses" which he directed. I had to take a shower after.

Yeah...I like the idea of Rob Zombie (pretty sure I said that somewhere in here before). I don't much about him. I don't know if he can act. I have heard him on Howard Stern twice and enjoyed him. He's smart and pretty normal, you know. Like Brian Warner (Marilyn Manson) they are pretty normal off stage.... Anyway, Rob (what I heard on the radio) was funny and a cool guy. I think he'd be a good Jude since Robgives the same kind of vibe....Like this "ooh spooky rock N roll persona" but regular old guy mad at paw lurks - sorry rambling big time.

Hi Learian. How's Cape Coral treating you?

Aww Thanks for the love all, now I truly feel welcome (all warm and fuzzy inside).
Rob Zombie did act in "The Devils Rejects", and had a pretty crazy scene involving wearing a muder victims face(which his character cut off) ::crosses arms to rub biceps and rock back'n'forth, to make the bad men go away::

He can do that "Trying to hide that hint of a southern draw" thing quite well.
I just think he won't need to act THAT much really. Rob is Jude in my mind.

Although Demorganakamark has a point, Zakk would make a good Jude. Hands down my vote is definelty for Rob. Someone call his agent let's get goin on this lol.

And for the record Cape Coral is definelty NOT treating me well at all. I'm originally from Poughkeepsie NY....(where Jude DIDN'T want to travel to 45 min away from his farm house to deal with Danny Wooten). Lemme tell ya 32 yrs in the northeast you expect snow, or atleast cold, around Christmas. Palm trees with lights, although they are VERY amusing...it's just not Christmas. I can't wait to move back! No disrespect to any Floridians.

WOW that sounds like a rant .... LMAO SORRY

I think I could get behind Rob Zombie as Jude since you put it that way. I'm sure he could pull off Jude in the first half. My only concern would be, could he pull off the major transformation that Jude has experienced by the end of the novel.

I have to say that when I lived in Florida I had the same issues about winter/Christmas. I love cold weather...at least here in NC. I've never lived further north than that so I don't know if I'd love it up there. They get a lot more of it and it lasts a lot longer. Right now I feel like I'm in the perfect place...I get the seasons and a little bit of snow every year. One of these years I hope we get a white Christmas!

I'm thinking for Craddock an actor that's a combo of Harry Dean Stanton, Gary Busey and Nick Nolte's mug shot:
