A casting call for ‘Gone Girl’

Just got my copy of Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” back from a co-worker, who returned not just the book, but also a potential cast list for the film. Reese Witherspoon is attached to the project and will likely star as the diabolically clever Amy Dunne, who mysteriously disappears on the day of her fifth wedding anniversary. (My colleague likes the idea of Michelle Williams or Carey Mulligan for Amy, if Witherspoon isn’t pre-cast; I think they’re both a hair too young, and am thinking maybe Amy Adams.) Here’s the rest of her cast, which seems pretty spot-on to me:
-Nick (Amy’s husband): Ryan Gosling
-Go (Nick’s sister): Claire Danes
-Amy’s parents: Laura Linney/Annette Bening/Patricia Clarkson (to which I say, love them all,, but it’s got to be Ms. Clarkson) and Ed Begley Jr.
-Desi: Vincent Kartheiser
-Desi’s mom: Susan Sarandon
-The Diane Sawyer-esque TV journalist who interviews Nick: Sigourney Weaver
-Tanner, the lawyer, and his wife, Betsy: Alec Baldwin and Angela Bassett or Taraji P. Henson
-Boney: Frances McDormand
-Andie: Mila Kunis or Megan Fox
Fun, no? Done any armchair casting of your own?
