Who Should Star in Harvey?

Who Should Star in Harvey?

Now that Tom Hanks is no longer in the running for Steven Spielberg’s remake of the Universal classic Harvey–because he was understandably leery, I hear, of the inevitable comparisons with James Stewart in the original role–who could pull this off? Hanks is probably too close to Stewart on some level–people have been comparing them his entire career. The role should be played by a warm and likable man who can convince us that he is talking to a six-foot rabbit. That means a top-notch actor who can hold the screen and pull in audiences. Here’s my list: vote! And write in anyone you think I’ve overlooked.

Here’s a clip from the original:
