    I think that’s 5 votes for Keanu . . . he’s the perfect actor for this role! He’s very metaphysical, very handsome, soft-spoken and if he hasn’t read S&H yet, I’m sure he would be very interested in reading it! Sent him a copy!! :)

    I couldn’t access Minnie—Kathy Bates for sure.
    Alfred—Keanu is a good suggestion

  3. Sarah V. Gray says:

    Yep… Kathy Bates for Minnes. For Alfred Farlow? My vote would go to William Macey or Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Was coming back from a shoot today in Venice, stuck in traffic on Brooks Ave at the Christian Science Library -it reminded me of my college days in Boston at the reflecting pond. I grew up in Connecticut, use to get stoned outside of M. Twain’s house. Tonight(4-20-11) I was at B & N bookstore; saw this long haired homeless looking guy buying books about Mark Twain, he had about 15 books. It was Mr. Kilmer. Now I’m on this website… weird things, strange coincidences, most people don’t see the connections. I’m Alfred Farlow -Robert J Gilman.

    Matt Damon would be a great choice to portray the character Alfred Farlow….He might be a little bit young for the part but I bet he would do a wonderful job…
