Donkey needs to do hip-hop. We've got a guy at work who likes hip-hop and is a *lot* like Donkey. But then, I don't suppose amusing a handful of booksellers in the UK's West Country is really what's going through anyone's mind...

ahah...I don't know why but I'm strangely excited to see how the casting turns out!
"Now she wants to know WHY, if I'm so fabulous, I would WANT to take care of her child.....I answer with as much filigree and insouciance as I can muster, trying to slightly cock my head like Snow White listening to the animals. She, in turn, is aiming for more of a Diane-Sawyer-pose, looking for answers which will confirm that I am not there to steal her husband, jewelry, friends, or child. In that order." The Nanny Diaries

The thing that perplexes me about this venture (beyond the terribly essential WHY WOULD THEY DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE?) is... well, why *are* they doing this? It's not going to reap the untold kazillions the movies did; it's not even going to come close. The upfront investment isnt something Dreamworks can afford right now. Shrek III will bring more financial interest back to the original movie than this will. It just seems, from a business POV, kind of a stupid move.

Shrek will NOT be a Shuler Hensley type. They are looking for a rock-and-roll Shrek. I imagine their dream Shrek would be Jack Black. Or maybe Meatloaf - 32 years ago when he did Rocky zHoror Picture Show.

(sigh) why is this show happening? i mean really...

I am however interested in how the casting will be done for this show. And maybe it will end up being good, who knows? As of right now, I'm not so sure.

Oh, I would LOVE Brian D'Arcy James as Farquaad! That might be reason alone to go see it.

Shuler will be to busy over at the St. James.

I imagine Dan Fogler will get it.

Jack Black playing Shrek is the only thing that could salvage this.

I know. I'd just like to see Shuler in it.

Supposedly, Folger and Kevin Chamberlain have been seen and rejected.

Kevin Chamberlin would NOT work. As much as I love him, he could not pull off being mean. haha.

Both Chamberlain and Fogler were unavailable. They were not seen and rejected. Chamberlain has an upcoming tv series and Fogler is signed for atleast four films.
I think if either had been available, there would not be an open call.
