I have to agree, she is not someone I would envision for the role at all. But, who knows, it could end up being quite interesting. I always reserve final judgment until I see the film but I can't say I'm thrilled about that casting option.
I agree. She has the right temperament and humor, but I do think that in this case her accent would be too distracting, and I don't think she'll be able to get rid of it for the role. Even though Johnny has mentioned her name, and she's worked with Marshall before, I don't think she'd necessarily be a given, though. At least I hope not.
This said, I do hope that Johnny and Penelope will get to work together again- I think they'd have a blast
