*From ye old days of the Livejournal comes this neat little Casting Coup, probably one of my favorites. I like how the post just ends: no wrapping up, no entreaty to the audience to participate. Just cuts off. These pics are new, by the way, because of my hot-linking. The text is not.*
Because you asked for it, begged for it, and demanded it, here it is...

Sorry I'm so far behind on this one!!
I am not real familiar with some of your casting picks, but I trust they would be worthy players in your remake.
Josh Duhamel or Ryan Reynolds for the Writer (George Peppard's Character), and Carey Mulligan (an Education) as Holly Golightly....I can see the two of them in the rain, with the cat....
