Casting the Wes Anderson Love in the Ruins, cont.

sdqtpics106That’s Rod McKuen on the left, and that’s Luke Wilson on the right. A bold choice for Dr. Tom More? Sure. But sometimes, you gotta ignore the naysayers and press on.


  1. Big Jon Bully says

    Is this a real project?

  2. Big Jon Bully says

    I already committed Wilson to a Rockford Files movie, but we can do a workaround. Bring Anderson by some night.

  3. For half a second, I thought the guy on the left was Scott Hahn, which created a great deal of cognitive dissonance.

  4. Quin Finnegan says

    That Rod McKuen is a handsome fellow. Maybe we should go for Michael Fassbender or Christian Bale?

  5. Quin Finnegan says

    I take your point. Tom More is not Moses, though perhaps he would like to be.

    What about that guy from Arrested Development and a not-so-great movie with Jennifer Ann is ton? He’s got the wreck thing down pretty well.

  6. Quin Finnegan says

    Jason Bateman.

  7. Quin Finnegan says

    Maybe not:”I’ve been offered a couple of leads in some movies that really suck. I mean, you know, if they’re offering me the lead, the script ain’t that great. The stuff that’s good, I’m a little further down the cast list.”

    On the other hand: “[on his past drinking] As disciplined as I am. I’m also a huge hedonist. If my fun level is like a 6 when I’m out, why not take it to a 10? That’s how I was with drinking. If I’m buzzed, let’s get drunk. And if I’m drunk, let’s black out. I mean, why not? I didn’t understand why you’d stop.”

  9. Matthew Lickona says

    Look, Quin, if your heart is really set on someone else, I’ll consider Kenneth Branagh. Check The Gingerbread Man for his Southern bona fides.

  10. Rufus McCain says

    Rod McKuen is thrown in just because of the mention in the book, right? I’m confused about why the next post is #3.

    • Broderick Barker says

      #1 was Bill Murray as Art Immelmann
      #2 is this one.
      The girl says that More looks just like Rod McKuen, so I’m using that as a visual guide. Wilson is the best Anderson regular; Branagh might be the best overall.
