I am sorry to say that none of our commenters correctly guessed the cast of Rebecca Stockett’s The Help in my “Casting Call” blog post from a couple months ago.
Filming starts this summer in Mississippi (mostly in Greenwood, although a few scenes will be shot in Jackson). Emma Stone will play Skeeter and Viola Davis will play Aibileen. Stone was Jules in Superbad, and Davis is best known for her fierce (and Oscar-nominated) role as Donald Miller’s mother in Doubt. According to IMDb, Bryce Dallas Howard—Victoria in this summer’s Eclipse—is rumored to play Hilly.
Are you happy with these casting choices?
