'Justice League' Auditions Heat Up
Big auditioning names include Adam Brody, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and half the cast of 'Friday Night Lights'
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller ("Happy Feet") was in Los Angeles for a lengthy multi-day audition process that began Sunday (Oct. 14) and will continue into Monday, pitting more than 35 actors and actresses for roles of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter (plus several nonhero parts).
The trade paper lists Adam Brody ("The O.C."), Joseph Cross ("Running With Scissors"), D.J. Cotrona ("Windfall"), "Sky High" stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Michael Angarano, Teresa Palmer ("Wolf Creek"), Max Thieriot ("Jumper") and Common ("American Gangster"), plus "Friday Night Lights" stars Minka Kelly, Adrianne Palicki and Scott Porter as among the names on the casting call sheet.
Feel free to cast the roles in your own mind based on that list.
The assembled names suggest that the Reporter may have been jumping the gun when it reported several weeks ago that Jessica Biel was in talks to play Wonder Woman.
The trade says that Miller is looking for young actors who can grow into the DC Comics characters over a possible series of movies (not that Warner Bros. is going to complain about a lower-costing cast) and that actor interaction is as important as individual role-playing. Miller is expected to share his thoughts with the studio mid-week.
