Stella Starr - The Movie {Casting Couch Challenge}

For the lead role of Stella Starr, plucky 1930’s girl detective, I would cast Veronica Mars star, Kristen Bell. When I wrote the stories, in my head, it was always Kristen Bell delivering that cheesy gangster dialog.

For Frankie Stein The Undead Don of New York’s Underworld, I have to get Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Blade II, TV’s Beauty and The Beast). That gravely voice, that willingness to work in full prosthetic make-up…

The role of Nelly Norton, Stella’s long suffering sidekick, goes to Allison Mack (Chloe from Smallville). Allison barely lost out the lead role to Kristen, but her agent renegotiated for the Nelly part, with the promise of a spin-off series.

For the part of the insane, opium smoking, gorilla humping Doctor Munroe from Stella Starr and The City of The Super-Apes, I’m going with Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr). Nobody plays crazy and campy like Bruce Campbell.

And as his gorilla wife? I don’t know, Andy Serkis maybe (King Kong)?
