    Poor Tom Cruise is way too young for this role with these actors. What about Kurt Russel as John Black. And isn’t Heather Locklear too slutty for sweet Jen? They do look similar but personality counts too! I like Jim Carrey as Jack though! Julia as Hope is perfect. But if Edward Norton is Bo, I am not sure about that! Matthew Mcconaughhey as Bo sounds about right to me. And I would switch Sean Connery and Anthony Hopkins roles. Anthony has that depth of evil that is required for Stephano. Sean plays a more straight forward person such as Victor. Plus I can see him with Maggie. I would also like to throw in Jobeth Williams as Marlena.
    To throw in another character Shirley MacClaine as Vivian Allamain.
    Fun topic and pretty good cast though!

    This is a fun casting idea. Thanks David. I agree with most, except for a few recast of my own…

    Sami Brady: Recast Kate Hudson with Emily van Camp (Revenge). I have yet to see Kate nail a “bitch” part, yet.

    Marlena Evans: Recast Meryl Streep with Jane Fonda.

    Caroline Brady: Now that Jane has moved over, let’s put Cloris Leachman in this role.

    John Black: Recast Tom Cruise (too young/”young-looking”) with Harrison Ford. More age-appropriate with my choice for Marlena.

    Jennifer Horton Devereaux: Recast Heather Locklear with Jennifer Aniston.

    Abby Devereaux: Recast Hilary Duff with Ellen Page.

    I like the idea of swapping Antony Hopkins and Sean Connery in the patriarchal roles.

    The Abe/Lexie pairing has ALWAYS creeped me out because of the age difference. The fantasy casting here, just exacerbates that! [ICK factor all over it!]

    This is it for now, unless I get inspired…

    Terry I like lot of your choices! Bo Derrick as Marlena though I would have to chew on for a minute! Physically yes that is pretty good but is her acting up to par with the rest of your cast? Especially as the lead!
    I would think that Morgan Freeman instead of Denzel. I don’t think of Abe as being as handsome as Denzel. But I do see him as this truly authentic deep voiced character like a Morgan Freeman character.
    And I think Tom is way too old to play Bo Brady.
