    Lightbulb Goethe's Faust Movie (Hollywood version) Casting

    God: Morgan Freeman
    Mephistopheles: Craig Ferguson
    Faust: David Bowie (assuming he's alive)
    Gretchen: Anne Hathaway


    Who else would you personally cast? Every minor part must be filled! Make Hollywood Great Again: Stop the dumb superhero movies and recite the entire German national drama in English using the most pretentious members of modern English-speaking popular culture as actors!

    I fully accept the consequences of suggesting a pop cultural film adaptation of what is perhaps the most intensively highbrow drama of all time including a presumably-dead rock star in the cast: sheer awesomeness. On that note, Elvis is English and roams the hills, so let's get him in here too.

    You will not ruin my epic fantasy, because your fantasy does not contain an epic, and thus cannot overpower mine, and this is a fact.

    Faust: Eine deutsche Volkssage, 1926
    Director F. W. Murnau

    Probably before your time, but a good movie. I don't really remember the actors.
