Special Note- All this month every Wednesday there is will be some very scary Anti-Hypothetical Casting posts.
When it was first suggested to me to by Esmee I actually confused Jane Lynch for Jamie Lee Curtis, I don’t watch Glee. However I did see her when she was in an episode of Arrested Development and in Christopher Guest’s Best in Show and I can say she is completely wrong in type for Sister Gudule.
First off, Jane Lynch is a comedy actress so that would mean for her to be cast they film would have to be silly AND follow Esmeralda’s backstory. Wait a sec did they already to that? However even in the 1999 French parody version, Sister Gudule’s counterpart was not a major characters. There is just something wrong making a woman who lost her chid in to a role that would NEED a comedic actress.
Second, Jane Lynch is a tall lady at 6 feet, she doesn’t seem like a delicate flower. Though maybe Sister Gudule isn’t a delicate flower but she is Esmeralda’s mother and her nickname of Chantfleurie seems to indicate a small fair lady.
Jane Lynch is one of the last people I would except to play Sister Gudule even if they did a comedic version of the story.Follow thehunchblog
