Which Hollywood A-Listers Could Pull Off Disney Villains?

Do you agree with People.com or do you have your own suggestions?

Interesting article. DD and I have been pondering a likely candidate to play Maleficent and I can imagine any of the article's suggestions being able to do her justice. I especially like the thought of Catherine Zeta Jones, hadn't even thought of her.

This is a very,very tough casting call. In my opinion Maleficent is the best villain Disney has ever created. Out of the 3 in the article I would personally have to choose Jolie. But I just can't see really anyone do her justice. I wonder if Elanor Audley (maleficent's voice)had a daughter. She would be interesting if she has her mother's traits.

Another excellent choice that I never would of thought of and the side by side picture makes a really good arguement.

I'm confused. The People article talks as if there *may* be a Maleficent movie. But I thought Disney had given the project the greenlight, and it is moving forward as definite. (?)

Hmm. This is most disconcerting. I surfed around and read lots of articles about prospective directors, writers and casting. IMDB is showing a date of 2013. Other than that, I couldn't find anything truly definitive. I want something carved in stone or beak delivered by Diablo.

I don't see any of the actresses listed playing Maleficent. In my opinion, only Idina Menzel from Wicked could play her.

Don't like any of those ideas, I really don't know who I would want to play Maleficent or Ursla in a live action adaption.

Well, if Tim Burton is directing, I think we all know who will play Maleficent.......

As for the others, I'd choose these, (although they are not Hollywood "A" listers by any stretch of the imagination...)

Naveen Andrews as Jafar....very interesting....

I always thought Meryl Streep would make a devilish Maleficent.

Roseanne would be perfect for Ursula!

I think Helena Bonham Carter would be an excellent Maleficent. I think she's very gifted actress (though admittedly, I don't like *all* of her movies) especially when it comes to being evil. She's positively perfect as Bellatrix in HP. Plus she's got those uber high cheekbones and large eyes. . . I think it could work.

Gerard Butler could work as Gaston. I don't think they'd would have a snowball's chance in you know where getting him to do it, but that's a whole 'nother thread.

Uma Thurman for the Evil Queen- I know she's blonde, but I think she could do the transformation into Old Hag pretty well. Oooh, or Jennifer Conelly.

I've got nothing for Jafar. He'd be tough. I think Johnny Depp could pull it off, but I don't think he would ever consider it.

Did you see his turn as the host of SNL this past season? They did a Beauty and the Beast skit that was one of the highlights of the year (a low bar, but still, it was funny). It was on Hulu, check it out if you haven't seen it.

I think Anjelica Huston would be a superb Maleficent. She has the voice, the stature, and the elegant little smile when she is being her most wicked.

I love the idea of Michelle Pfeiffer as Maleficent! The only idea of my own I've got is Alan Rickman as Frollo-- they look kind of alike and Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd is pretty much the Victorian version of Frollo anyway
