Casting Call for Esther

After reading through the book of Esther from the Hebrew Bible the last couple of days, I've taken upon myself to cast the characters for it for a major Hollywood studio.

In order of appearance:

Sean Bean as King Ahasuerus

Angelina Jolie as Queen Vashti

Ben Kingsley as Mordecai

Camille Belle as Esther

Isaac Mizrahi as Hegai, the eunuch in charge of the beauty pageant.

and John Malkovich as Haman

All right, I have to list my own cast:

-Woody Allen as Mordecai

-Scarlet Johansson as Esther

-Angelina can stay as Vashti

-Clive Owen as King Ahasuerus

-Daniel Craig as Haman

-And Martin Short as the eunuch (with Eddie Murphy or Mike Myers close seconds)

I can't imagine Woody Allen slaughtering all those people on Purim, or Scarlet Johansson seriously saying, "If I die, I die." Her boobs would be too distracting!
