Let's Cast Leonard Bernstein

.
There is a rumor going around that Steven Spielberg is thinking about making a bio-pic of West Side Story composer, sexy beast, and closet-homosexual Leonard Bernstein. I don't know if there is anyone hot enough to play him working in Hollywood today (I have always had a serious crush on LB) but let's try.

Who would you cast?

Yes, a very clean shaven Jake Gyllenhaal. Thank you; our work here is done.

I am thinking Andrew Garfield. He may be too young but he looks the part and he may just drop the fluidity crap and become a deeper actor.

Oh...all I had to do is scroll down to see Louis Garrel....Perfect

if it's a portrait of the artist as a young man: ezra miller

if it's the totally do-able 'west side story' era: james wolk

and since he missed out on freddie mercury, what about sascha baron cohen?

[yes, i did google "jewish actors"]

Love the comments above.

Maybe Armie Hammer? Or perhaps I'm just still riding the wisps of CMBYN...

For the Jake Gyllenhaal suggestions, the Point is to highlight the movie to audiences, not making a box office flop.
