Directors and Actors Who Should Take a Meeting

Posted on

— Martin Scorsese and Ed Burns (Burns would be ideal opposite Leo in Gangs of New York as an Irish thug)

— Steven Spielberg and Ben Affleck (Can’t you see Ben in Spielberg’s possible Charles Lindbergh biopic?)

— Barry Sonnenfeld and Ricky Martin (For the director’s movie about Chippendales dancers, Ricky’s the man)

— Nora Ephron and Brendan Fraser (Ephron’s adept at romantic comedies, and Fraser could use one — or at least one that doesn’t costar Alicia Silverstone — to expand his action-hero appeal)

— Spike Lee and Jar Jar Binks (Could anybody else save this guy’s career? Spike could clear up this whole Stepin Fetchit act)
