It would need to be an older actress who could be intimidating and a total grumpy boss lady. I think that this would be a perfect role for someone like Glenn Close. And after seeing her in The Fighter, I think that Melissa Leo would be great too.
Nice Guy Eddie
Originally played by: Chris Penn
When thinking about this, for some reason Christina Ricci came to mind. I think she could bring in that mixture of humor and sleaze that nice guy Eddie has and I can just picture her yelling, "Stop pointing that gun at my daaad!" (Well, mom in this case...) Also, I just love Christina Ricci and would love to see her in everything.
Originally played by: Harvey Keitel
Such a tough choice! I had three actresses come to mind for the female version of Mr. White. She would have to be someone the others could respect but would also have to be really likable. This would be a great role for actresses like Catherine Keener, Frances McDormand, and Holly Hunter.
Originally played by: Tim Roth
This person would be playing and undercover cop who spends most of the movie bleeding to death. I think that Melanie Laurent would be great in this role. I loved her in Inglourious Basterds, and think that she would own this role.
Originally played by: Steve Buscemi
This one was actually the hardest for me to think of. There really isn't a female Steve Buscemi. After thinking about it for a while though I thought of Toni Collette for this, and then I couldn't think of anyone else. She would be perfect!
Originally played by Michael Madsen
My first thought was to cast Angelina Jolie in this part. She makes such a great villain and her performance as sociopath Lisa Roe in Girl Interrupted proves that she could do a role like this. The problem with her in the role though is that she is maybe too big of a star and it would distract from the character. So, another person that I think would be great would be the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace.
Originally played by: Quentin Tarantino
This isn't a very big role. This person would just need to tell the Like a Virgin story in the diner scene and then get killed off right away. I would be kind of cool if Tarantino muse Uma Thurman did a little cameo as this role.
