Casting The Ocean's Eleven Reboot

Casting The Ocean's Eleven Reboot

I love the Ocean's Trilogy. I don't care if you think Ocean's Twelve and Thirteen were sub-par. If they're on my television, they're staying on until the credits roll.

So it was no surpise that shortly after news broke that Sandra Bullock could be starring in an Ocean's Eleven reboot, I was getting texts from my casting partner Heather about the squad she was forming in her head. By Tuesday morning, we had our cast finalized. With my Grantland column out the way, my procrastination on my NaNoWrMo novel and the last two Talking Out The Dead columns continues!

And sorry Melissa McCarthy, like our Ghostbusters cast, you're getting left out.
  • Sandra Bullock
  • Helen Mirren
  • Allison Janney
  • Emily Blunt w/ British accent
  • Rosario Dawson
  • Tatiana Maslany
  • Rose Byrne barring pregnancy scheduling issues otherwise Hayley Atwell
  • Lizzy Caplan*
  • Parker Posey*
  • Naomi Harris
  • Rinko Kikuchi
  • And Julia Roberts in a cameo as Tess Ocean
  • Villian: Emma Thompson/Lucy Liu
  • Love Interest: Chiwetel Ejiofor

We'll put our cast up against any other casts you so-called credible sites are posting. I guarantee our movie will be better and make more money and make more sequels. Well, I promise that but I'm sure she'd back me up.

Any questions?


  1. I think 12 was rubbish even if it did have my favourite character in the series (Toulour). The others I love, though.

  2. I also always cast Naomi Harris in everything. Everything.
