Remember when we first heard the news of Roman Polanski’s God of Carnage and its cast? And we were a little skeptical and surprised that Matt Dillon was a part of it? Well someone seems to have been listening to me because Dillon is out and John C. Reilly is in!
Honestly, I couldn’t be more pleased with this bit of casting news. How awesome is John C. Reilly? He can do mumblecore comedy as in Cyrus. He can do straight comedy like in Step Brothers. He can do absurd comedy like Dr. Steve Brule. And he can do the dramatic too and since I can’t really differentiate the different types of drama, we’ll just make a blanket statement that he’s good and remind you that he was in Days of Thunder.
Now we have to figure out who Reilly will be paired off with. Our choices in the matter are Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster. Honestly, I see it going toward Foster because the Winslet and Christoph Waltz makes slightly more sense but I actually want to see Reilly and Winslet paired up. For some reason that makes me laugh. But who am I kidding, Polanski is a crazy man. He could pair up Waltz and Reilly. Its not like the man could harm his reputation further.
