AHHHHH!! Javier Bardem as Felipe!? James Franco as David? Richard Jenkins as Richard (my favorite person in the book)?!?! I just got 10,000 times more excited for this.
I kind of wished they cast an unknown actress as Elizabeth Gilbert. See someone "normal" get to love on all these hotties and go to these fabulous destinations. The book was such a success, it still would have had a huge draw. Especially with this male cast.
