Mena Suvari

 

  1. Julia Stiles, 0, 1999.       Seen with Natasha Lyone, Christiana Ricci for Desi, the updated Desdemona, as Othello becomes basketball hero Odin believing everything Hugo tells him. Director Tim Blake Nelson edited his film by night while acting in the Coen brothers’ O Brother Where Art Thou during the day.
 Explains much about both movies.
  2. Kate Hudson, Almost Famous, 2000.    Looking for his Penny Lane groupie (based on Pennie Trumble, aka Pennie Lane), in his semi- autobiographical look back to his Rolling Stone reporter “daze,” Cameron Crowe saw all of LA’s bright young things… Suvari, Neve Campbell, Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Jenna Elfman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Anne Heche, Rose McGowan, Bridget Moynahan, Brittany Murphy, Christina Ricci, Rebecca Romijn, Chloe Sevigny.   Next? Uma Thurman passed and the winner, Sarah Polley, split. (Silly girls).  Crowe then chose Kate because “she seemed more like a free spirit.”  But, but, but… Sevigny was the freest spirt in all Hollywood!
  3. Kirsten Dunst, Spider-Man,  2001.
  4. Cameron Diaz, Gangs of New York,  2002.    For Martin Scorsese, casting was easy. In 1978, Dan Aykroyd-John Belushi were Amsterdam and The Butcher.  (WTF?!!) Or, Mel Gibson-Willem Dafoe. By 1984, Malcolm McDowell-Robert De Niro. Finally, Leonardo DiCaprio-Daniel Day Lewis. Much harder to locate the real prim pickpocket Jenny Everdeane. For the brothers blue, she would have been Jane Fonda. When Buffy The Vampire Slayer got into Sarah MIchelle Gellar’s way, Marty checked Christina Applegate (from his 1990 Cape Fear auditions), Kate Beckinsale, Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Heather Graham, Bryce Dallas Howard, Alyssa Milano, Natalie Portman, Christina Ricci, Winona Ryder, Mena Suvari… and chose Sarah Polley. Except the suits insisted on a “bankable star.” As if Scorsese-DiCaprio-Day Lewis weren’t enough. Diaz’s six week contracted lasted six months - and did her no good at all!
