I don’t want any of this lover’s lament crap. I want something peppy, something happy, something up-tempo. I want something snappy.
Kate Walsh as Mr. White (Tom Hanks). I was really going back and forth between Kate Walsh and Julianne Moore up until the last second, and I was going to go with Julianne because I found these great photos of her in a suit. But my heart was saying Kate Walsh—she can be professional and tough as nails, but also has pitch-perfect comedic timing. She also has this latent sassiness that makes it’s easier for me to picture her as a music industry professional. So Kate, if you want to write, direct, and act in a remake of TTYD, you have my blessing.
