Dale Manon Lescaut:

Well I suppose it would have to be someone like Scarlett Johansson for Manon. Or perhaps Michelle Williams. De Grieux? I'm stuck. A young Jude Law would have been perfect but he's well past it now... Maybe we could test out Ryan Gosling's acting abilities - it would be a challenging role for him! Plus someone like Geoffrey Rush would be perfect for old 'M. de G. M.' or 'M. de B.' Any other suggestions?

Lucy Mason (lmason17) | 2 comments Maybe Ewan McGregor for the Chevalier? I'm probably only saying this because of the similarities between Chevalier & McGregor's character in the Moulin Rouge! film...

Kelly Spoer (spoerk) I totally agree with Scarlett Johansson as Manon.
How about Robert Downy Jr as G.M?
Manon's brother - Jeremy Renner/Benedict Cumberbatch.
Chevalier - Arthur Darvill (from doctor who) but i dunno.

Dale Interesting suggestions :) Ewan McGregor, yes. Just a pity he's getting on a bit. Perhaps a bit too old to play a 17 year old now. Robert Downy Jnr would be terrific as G.M!

Actually, Orlando Bloom might be a good choice for the Chevalier. I think he could still get away with playing a teenager...

Dale And how could I forget Eddie Redmayne...?
