sounds cool

Personally I feel the actors should not be major Hollywood actors and they should, of course, do justice to dead. The movie should be made with heart and meaning if it is to be taken seriously and liked. This has a potential to be a very great film, or something negative. Obviously music would be a huge aspect, but I really would like to have heart, good actors (acting and resembling likeness), and music.

cool

I just hope they do the boys and one girl justice. To me they are an american icon in music history. As far as casting that would be a most difficult task I think the members would have to be several people throughout the years
I am sure Bob Weir will be there to make sure things don't get out of hand to make sure things don't get blown out of perportion stick to the truth with some comedy and drama and of course lots of good good music

Bob - The Roadrunner
Phil - Dr. Science
Mickey - Bruce Lee
Bill - Keith Moon/Elvin Jones hybrid borg
or Laurel and Hardy could play Mickey and Bill

Not sure

Like I said yesterday, these sort of films make me nervous. There's a chance of the Dead and us fans coming off as cartoon characters.
Anyway, how about Benicio del Toro as Jerry?

There are some really funny cast suggestions but also some very mean spirited energy over at the Rolling Stone site about the movie under news for 7/06/07. I wrote the comment smile, smile, smile,
