If 'Criminally Insane' was remade, who would you like to see as Ethel?


If "Criminally Insane" was remade, who would you like to see as "Crazy Fat Ethel"? My choice would be Rosie O'Donnell because I think that she would make a great psycho, plus she's on the heavy side.

I like your choice and I also agree with you that she would make a great psycho.

LOL you know what? I was just thinking Kathy Bates. She would be another great choice to play a psycho.

I'm sure there's a morbidly obese woman out there, willing to exploit herself for this kind of film. I'd go with an unknown.

Kathy Bates was who came to mind. Maybe Rosie O' donnell...

Camryn Manheim from Happiness.

all good choices, but if Britney Spears keeps on her tortured path for much longer, she may be hefty enough to don the Ethel moomoo.

That sounds like a really good cast. I sure hope they do remake this movie.

I would go with an unknown actress. I don't really like seeing big name stars in horror movies because I can never separate from their character. It just seems like they're playing themselves.

Kathy Lamkin.

She played a psychopath before.
She was the "Tea Lady" in Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

reply

She would be good. I was actually thinking Honey Boo Boo's mom as a joke long after I made my post.

I think Kathy Lamkin would be convincing.
She's a great actress!

reply

Good point, I agree.
