Everybody has been pretty keen to hear more about the submissions to the contest – as promised, I’ve put together two teams – the “dream team” based on the actors that were suggested the most, and the “hybrid team”, which is made up of my favorite actors from the five winning submissions. The dream team would be a pretty good team, and at the same time, the hybrid team would be interesting. Remember; Columbia that Eddie Murphy and John Candy were THE guys to play Winston and Louis, so scoff not at what seems like an odd combination. The original team was just as odd, and look how that turned out.
Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, and Rick Moranis.
The Dream Team
Seth Rogan as Ray, Stephen Colbert as Egon, Mos Def as Winston, Ryan Reynold as Peter (I did say on the radio that Odd’s pick of Raynolds was popular), and Seth Green as Louis – because any movie with two Seth’s has got to be good.
The Hybrid Team
Jon Favreau as Ray, Alexis Denisof as Egon, Jay “Beerfest” Chandrasekhar as Winston, John C. McGinley as Peter, and Alyson Hannigan as Louis… or possibly Louise. Given Denisof and Hannigan are married, maybe the love interest isn’t between Egon and Janine this time around.
It boggles the mind, doesn’t it?
