Continuing the fantasy cast into the Morrison era (a much stranger sequel, perhaps). I’d keep Duchovny and Gandolfini/Jones from the previous cast, of course, and add these four:
Miranda July as Crazy Jane. July doesn’t do much acting outside of her own work, but I like the idea of casting a performance artist as Jane, rather than a method actress. I think she could pull it off impressively, plus she has exactly the right look. I mean, right?
Chiwetel Ejiofor as Joshua Clay. Great actor, looks right for the part. Joshua is the team’s everyman, so the requirements of casting him are less specific. I just like this guy.
Chris Colfer as Rebis. I realize this seems like a really bizarre choice, but keep in mind the audience never sees Rebis unwrapped. I thought long and hard about who’s capable of seeming completely androgynous while wrapped up like a mummy and wearing a skinny tie, and Colfer came to mind. His voice is in between what we usually think of as male and female, and his background in dance will help him express himself with no visible face.
Isabelle Fuhrman as Dorothy Spinner. Orphan was a terrible movie, but I was really impressed with its young star. That film asked things of her that no child actress should be expected to do, and she totally pulled it off. And if she’s willing to play a criminally insane Russian dwarf posing as a young girl, she’d probably be up for wearing ape-face prosthetics to play a mutant with uncontrollable psychic powers.
