Evans, Bard in The Hobbit, Shaw in the Fast & Furious franchise and Gaston in Beauty & the Beast is Welsh but I expect he’ll play Scott as an American. Despite my disappointment with the Americanization of the movie, Evans is handsome enough for anyone’s fantasy life and he’s a thoroughly talented actor. On a personal note my husband was an AD in the upcoming Message from the King in which Evans plays a baddie, but dang it if Evans didn’t skip the wrap party!
Allison Janney in Masters of Sex
Checking the rest of the cast for The Girl on the Train, I see the very versatile Allison Janney has joined the cast in an unspecified role and Lisa Kudrow is signed on as Monica. Monica, Monica? Besides Monica in Friends, I can’t remember for the life of me who Monica is—but apparently she’s a former coworker of Tom’s?
What I see is the coming together of a very American movie out of a very British book. Bah Humbug. I know if I want to be open to at least enjoying the movie, I’ll have to stop griping about this and get on board the train.
How about you all? What do you think of the latest casting news?
