I was giving some thought to the casting of Mrs. Robinson. For those of you who don’t know, I don’t usually get too worked up about casting. Or rather, I don’t get stuck on actors or actresses for particular parts. The one exception to this is the role of Elena/Mrs. Robinson. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for Charlize Theron to play the part. She’s the age described in the books, she’s beautiful and a FANTASTIC actress.
But, I thought of another reason. Like Jamie Dornan, she has played a serial killer in a movie. Yup, she’s the actress behind Aileen Wuornos in the movie Monster. How much more in common could they have. No, really, how many actors and actresses have played serial killers???
Ok, it’s really just an interesting fact about both of them. But I still think that Charlize Theron would make a wonderful Mrs. Robinson.
