Transcript of Romeo and Juliet

Romeo Romeo and Juliet Casting Meredith and Blossom Josh Hutcherson Josh Hutcherson is young, sure of himself and has been lovestruck in many of his roles
Textual Evidence: when Romeo talks to Friar Laurence about how in love he is with Juliet. Mercutio Ezra Miller In the Perks of Being a Wallflower, Ezra Miller played a character who was cynical when it came to love, as is Mercutio. He is also witty and smart alecky. Ezra Miller also plays a leading role and a best in the Perks of a Being a Wallflower.
Textual Evidence: Mercutio's Queen Mab speech shows how skeptical he is about everything. The Nurse Meryl Streep In many movies Meryl Streep has starred in she has played a strong female character and Romeo and Juliet is no different, the Nurse is funny and a motherly character which are true attributes that Meryl Streep is known for.
Textual evidence: The Nurse goes into town talk to Romeo for Juliet. Tybalt Tom Felton Tom Felton played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series so he has experience with playing characters who are cynical and extremely emotional, which are two big character traits of Tybalt
Textual evidence: Act 3 scene 1. The fight between Mercutio and Tybalt. Juliet Chloe Moretz is young and lovestruck which is a big charachter trait of Juliet. She can also have the "damsel in distress" attitude which is an important aspect of Juliet.
Textual evidence: "Where for art thou Romeo?" Act 2 scene 2 Friar Laurence Stanley Tucci Friar Laurence is a fatherly figure to
Romeo, and Stanley Tucci played a fatherly
figure in the movie the Hunger Games.
Friar Laurence is good at giving advice as is
Stanley Tucci's character's in the Hunger
Games. Textual Evidence: When Romeo seeks
love-life relationship from Friar Laurence. (Act 2 Scene 2) Prince Tommy Lee Jones Paris Andrew Garfield Benvolio Emile Hirsch Lady Capulet Sandra Bullock Lady Capulet is a strong, female character
but she is not motherly or compassionate towards Juliet. Sandra Bullock played a similar character in the movie "The Proposal"
Textual Evidence: When Juliet calls Lady Capulet
"Madam" Benvolio is a loyal friend and a peacemaker when his friends start to fight. Emile Hirsch has played similar roles as an actor.
Textual evidence: When Tybalt and Romeo fight, Benvolio tries to break them and stop them from fighting Lord Capulet Alec Baldwin Lord Montague Bryan Cranston Chloe Grace Moretz The Prince has to deliver powerful
speeches in order to sway his subjects
to not fight anymore, and Tommy Lee
Jones is good at delivering powerful
Textual Evidence:Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace,
Profaners of this neighbour-stained steel (Act 1 scene 1 Paris is chosen by Lady Capulet for Juliet for their marriage and acts arrogant towards Juliet. Andrew Garfield would be able to pull off this role.
Textual Evidence: But he also isn't really in love with Juliet either, as it says in act 5 scene "The obsequies that I for thee will keep
Nightly shall be to strew thy grave and weep." Which means he won't grieve over losing Juliet Lord Capulet is set on having Juliet marry
Paris not out of love but for because he
might cause them to climb higher on the social ladder. Brian Cranston's intensity would make him a good actor for the role. Lord Montague is compassionate
and tries to reason with the Prince
for his son's life, so that instead of
being executed he was banished.
AlecBalwin has played many fathers and leaders.
