Here is my casting suggestions wish list:
Captain Marvel - preferably an unknown culled from daytime soaps or the stage, like Cheyenne Jackson, but if a bigger name star is mandatory, good choices are James Caveizel, Jesse Metcalfe, or possibly Ashton Kutcher.
Billy Batson - Nathan Kress (Nickelodeon's iCarly)
Shazam - Omar Sharif or possibly Michael Keaton
Dr Sivana - Joe Pesci or maybe Dustin Hoffman
Beautia - Kelly Carlson (Nip/Tuck), Marnette Patterson (Starship Troopers 3), or Stacy Keibler (Samurai Girl)
Black Adam - obviously, Dwayne Johnson has already been cast
Uncle Dudley - his royal majesty Micky Dolenz (this is my #1 casting pick!)
Mary Bromfield (Batson) - Kay Panabaker (Read It & Weep) or Selina Gomez (Another Cinderella Story)
Freddy Freeman - Benjamin Keough (Elvis' grandson)
Sterling Morris - Jon Voight, Stacey Keatch, Dan Aykroyd, or Martin Mull
Joan Jameson - Keri Lynn Pratt, Maggie Lawson (Psych), or Sarah Chalke
Nick Bromfield - Tom Selleck
Nora Bromfield - Catherine Hicks or Bonnie Hunt
Nanny Primm - Carol Burnett or Cloris Leachman
Cissy Sommerly - Emily Osment (Hannah Montana)
Whitey Murphy - Jason Dolley (Minutemen)
Mr Tawny - Jim Belushi
Freddy's Grandpa - Alan Alda or Tony Curtis
Ebenezer Batson - Bob Newhart, Tim Conway, or possibly Don Rickles
The Ghoul - Ron Sweed
Thank you for indulging me with this long winded post. Such is the ramblings of a Shazamaholic!
