    If Hollywood were to make a movie...

    On a lighter note, if there was a movie made on this trial using actors, who would you cast for the roles ? Edit - Maybe this should be another thread

    There is no doubt in my mind that'd I want jonah hill to play Kratz.
    Martin Freeman would make a good Kachinsky
    .
    BBM: Brilliant!!!

    Teresa Halbach - Jennifer Lawrence (she deserves nothing but the best!)
    Dean Strang - Robert Downey Jr
    Jerry Buting - Christian Bale
    Sgt Colburn - Steve Buscemi
    Steve Avery - not sure but too bad Phllip Seymour Hoffman is gone, he would have been awesome

    ETA: I actually think William H Macy for Kuchinsky

    Oh wow!

    I love the picks for colburn and avery! I didn't think about hoffman for avery. Couldn't think of a good avery.

    Macy for kuchinsky would maybe be great, but I wonder if he looks a bit too weathered for the role.

    Yeah you are right about Macy being to weathered - we will stick with Jonah Hill.

    I wish I could think of someone good for Brendan.

    Mrs. Avery - Kathy Bates!
    Mr. Avery - Wilford Brimley
    Barb Tayditch - Taryn Manning
    Cindy - Natasha Lyon
    Also, there are a lot of great actors in the TV show Fargo that would be great as well!

    Wow, you are good at this!

    Brimley as Al Avery is epic

    Jonah Hill would be Kratz -

    Martin Freeman - Kuchinsky -- he was in fargo!


    Fargo does some amazing casting, and this case fits that same vein. I keep saying this is like a real version of Fargo.

    Jesse Plemons from Fargo/Breaking bad would make a good Earl Avery
    Billy Bob thornton might make a good Chuck Avery.

    Someone posted on main thread Donny Wahlberg for Weigert, which is great!

    I've probably given this too much thought.


    Steven Avery - Vincent D'Onofrio

    Kratz - Jon Lovitz (sorry Jon )

    Strang - Emilio Estevez

    Buting - Gary Oldman

    Kachinsky - Rick Moranis (better choices - William H. Macy and Martin Freeman)

    Colborn - Mike Myers

    Lenk - John C. Reilly

    I think stephen colbert would make a good Dean Strang, if he could tone done the funny

    I like Gary Oldman as Buting!

    Reilly as Lenk, is pretty good too.

    You seemed to have a little bit of a comedy twist to yours, you might as well have suggested Larry David as Lenk!

    A mockumentary style version, might be interesting. In that case I could see the more comedy actor slant.

    What about Daryl Sabara as Brendan? He was brilliant in The Worlds Greatest Dad with Robin Williams. He pulls off clueless perfectly.

    Actually, that's a really good suggestion.

    I'd say if they went mockumentary they should change it to a fictitious family and victim out of respect for halbachs, and focus more on character types than matching the case too closely.

    I most definitely agree, anything else would be in poor taste and disrespectful.

    It was strange that I chose actors known for comedic roles, maybe it's because they're character actors/chameleon types.

    Since we're talking about comic relief, I found this skit hilarious. ( I, too mean no disrespect, and hope it's ok to share this).
