they might be kind of hard to get, because they are all quite famous :-)

And, I believe, all quite dead.

Gee--an animation-challenged casting call. Wouldn't that be interesting. . .

Dead? Heck, I just saw them all on TV last week in movies.

Yes, we all believe - in ghosts. I see them all the time on TV. Some are very much better than the Live talent of today, eh?

Hey, Laurence Olivier was in Sky Captain in the World of Tomorrow, made in 2004, wasn't he? :-).

(you should all see that movie; very under-rated.)

Okay, okay. Stop beating me up for my choice as Clarisse. The truth is I'm totally out of touch with today's stars. The only reason I know about Avril and Hillary is because my 12 year old son has a crush on them. I did see Avril on SATURDAY NITE LIVE last year and she seemed to be full of positive energy, or was it just teenage angst. She sang a song called SK8TR BOY.

Has anyone considered the Simpsons or even the Flintstones? MixedSignals46

I think that "PoopF*&$" guy is right... That would be an interesting cast alright. That's a very offensive name though. Maybe you should drink some dish soap and call me in the morning PoopF*&$... MixedSignals46

Here's one I came up with the other day:

Montag: Homer Simpson
Mildred: Marge
Clarisse: Lisa
Beatty: Chief Wiggum
Faber: Prof. Frink
Granger: Flanders? Apu? Snake?
The White Clown: Krusty the Klown
Misc. Firemen: Lou and Eddie (the regular cops) and Lenny and Carl
The Mechanical Hound: Ralph Wiggum ~ "I'm a doggy with poison in my mouth!"

I'm not sure about Granger, it could go a couple different ways, depending on how you wanted to play the character. I think the rest fit perfectly!

"I'm a doggy with poison in my mouth!"

Brilliant. I'm a big fan of THE SIMPSONS. The last couple of years they've really gotten out of hand with the sexual innuendos and naughty word-play. I can't believe they're able to maintain the family friendly time-slot they have.

Dandedion, I had no idea! Wow, what a poem. What other talents lie unmasked?

grasstains - are you serious?! Hillary Duff or Avril Lavigne? Oh no, my friend...
Scarlett Johanneson (sure I slaughtered that name) or Thora Birch should play Clarisse. They would do good. (yes, they're both in Ghost World)
