Who would you cast in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland?

Asked by jballou (2106 points ) September 24th, 2008

Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Christina Ricci as Alice, Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen of Hearts are my picks. Depp has been rumored, the rest are just my speculation.

What do you think? Who should play the rest of the parts?

I was going to say exactly what you said.

Alice in Wonderland isn’t trippy enough already?

I love your choices too! Helena Bonham for sure!

IMDb says that Mia Wasikowska will play Alice. I like your choice of Christina Ricci better!

Kristen Bell as Alice
Henry Winkler as The White Rabbit
Javier Bardem as The Cheshire Cat
Zach Braff as The Caterpillar

I like Depp and Carter, but I don’t know how many more Depp/Burton films will happen. I’m sure they want to move on. Although, I would be totally content with a dozen more. They work well together.

Hmm… I’ll have to think a little on that one…

Johnny Depp was apparently confirmed as the Mad Hatter.

Cheshire Cat=Lily Tomlin, she already has the smile and eyes. My favorite people are the ones with the smiling eyes that never go away.

trumi, I can really see Henry Winkler as the White Rabbit

@jballou- you nailed it

Actually I wouldn’t mind Kristen Stewart as Alice.

what about winnona ryder as alice

shrubbery's avatar

Yes, yes. She was beautiful in Little Women. Though she might be a little bit too grown up for the role.

If Winona and Johhny did another role together, do you think it would spark the old flame?

@ shrubbery – good point, she has a youthfull look, but maybe not enough.

@ scamp – I hope not. It would dash my view of Johnny

@trumi – Kristen Bell as Alice

GENIUS!!
