Travis_Bickle: Love Marla Singer

But she is not Liz Taylor in any way. This is bad casting.

HBC is one of the greatest chameleon actresses ever. If there is anyone who could pull Liz off, it's here.

You know, Dominic West might be able to pull off Burton.  Helena Bonham Carter might be able to pull off Liz (although I doubt that more).  But if you want to experience the tumult of their relationship you really only need to watch one film, and it starred both of them: Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf.  I just can't imagine such an intense, personal movie being produced in America in this day and age.

/George Segal in a supporting role, now there's a guy who's had a long and varied career.

I, for one, am curious to see how the wardrobe/special effects work out for HBC's torso.

Taylor had her some legendary lung capacity. Bonham Carter, while justly praised for some of her shirt-off work, is arranged a little differently.

coeyagi: I was unaware that Liz Taylor was fond of wearing the frumpiest attire imaginable.

Right, because actors bring their own clothes.
