Coming Soon heard from a scooper who thinks he has the lowdown on some candidates for the upcoming "Garfield" movie. "I was on the phone with a friend of mine who relayed a story to me that appeared in his local newspaper. The article, he claimed, listed speculative casting for Hewitt’s Garfield adaptation. Here is the listing he named."
Jon – Rumored actors include Chris Kattan (SNL), Ryan Stiles (Drew Carey Show) and Jason Lee (Dogma)
Lyman – Will Ferrell (Zoolander) has emerged as the top contender.
Liz – Either Molly Shannon (SNL) or Linda Fiorentino (MIB) will reportedly land this role.
Dr. Davis – A pet psychologist whose name pays homage to Garfield’s creator is likely to be played by Chevy Chase (Fletch).
Garfield – John Goodman (Coyote Ugly) is the main contender for this role. The second choice is George Wendt (Cheers).
I don’t know for sure if my cousin was telling the truth about the article, but I’ve never known him to lie about such things before
