Disney announced today that Lily James, star of the British period drama Downtown Abbey, has been chosen to play Cinderella in the live-action retelling of the 1950 classic. But that’s not the real news. The REAL news is that the magnificent Cate Blanchett has been cast as the wicked and manipulative stepmother. SQUEAL!!! It’s perfect. The woman can do no wrong. But no word yet on who’ll be playing the nasty stepsisters or— more importantly— Prince Charming. If Disney execs are smart, they’ll go with someone who’s eye candy AND can act the shit outta that role. Thor director Kenneth Branagh is set to helm the project and has a good record for picking actors who meet both requirements. Chris Hemsworth, anyone? Cased closed. My picks would probably be Douglas Booth or maybe Chace Crawford. What do you think? Who would you cast?
