Casting Call: Romeo

Something tells us the Queen Mab speech won't make it into this version, but Mercutio, Romeo's BFF, probably will. We'd like Alex Pettyfer to play Mercutio and lust over Romeo from affair.

We'd like Emma Watson to take on the character of Juliet. She looks elegant and innocent enough to hide her seedy Capulet upbringing.

Jeremy Irvine is certainly handsome enough for Romeo, and we'd like to see him in a hot-headed action role. With his strong demeanor, he will stand out as a crime-fighting detective.

Wishful thinking, but perhaps Johnny Depp could play Lord Capulet... the Captain of the DEA? He was so wonderful in Donnie Brasco.

We'd like to see Game of Thrones' Jon Snow (Kit Harington) get angry. We nominate Harington for the role of Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin and Romeo’s rival.

Lord Capulet is the patriarch of the Capulet family, and with this film taking on a modern Mafia-type feel to it, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau can certainly bring a flawless energy to the film.
