Much Ado About Nothing

Character Casting

Benedick

In the play the character Benedick is a very confident and outgoing man, he thinks very highly of himself. He vows never to marry and never to fall in love. However his promise is short lived as woman he has known for ages captures his soul and he falls very deeply in love with her. Benedick will be cast by Tom Cruise as he has many of these characteristics, besides not falling in love.

Claudio

Claudio is a soldier in the army, he is a very smart and clever blond. Claudio cares very much for everybody and is always looking out for everybody. He cares very much for his new wife, Hero, and is clearly devastated when he discovers the lie about her makes her Chastity come into question. He never stopped loveing her and never stopped trying to fix what he had done, and for all those heroic aspects he will be cast by Chris Evans.

Beatrice

Beatrice is an enchanting character, her sharp wits and cunning mind can fool anyone, even herself. When she overhears that Benedick is in love with her but then she quickly out thinks herself and reciprocates the feelings towards him. She is a beautiful woman than many men adore who thinks very highly of herself. She has many amazing traits and is a friend to all, unless you mess with her family. For all of her kind and loving qualities she will be played by Natalie Portman.

Plot

Much Ado About Nothing is a play written by Shakespeare in 1599, It is an extraordinarily amazing tragic-comedy and it revolves around several characters, some being fair maidens others being valiant soldiers and one being a dastardly villain. In my opinion the biggest events to happen in this story would be when Benedick and Beatrice fall in love with each other, it sows huge character development, both of them said they would never love one another and then only a few scenes later they propose their love to one another in front of a huge crowd of onlookers, it is also my favorite scene. The second biggest event to happen in the story is how Don Pedro is willing to propse to Hero pretending to be Claudio, it shows how selfless Don John is and how he would do anything for his friends and true love. The third most important event to happen in this play is how even though Claudio thought Hero was not faithful he still didn't stop loving her, he was absolutly devasted when he found out that she killed herself and was absolutly enlightened to find out that was not the case, it shows true heroism and loyalty to his partner.

Theme

I believe that the best event in the story to write about woukld be the twisted love story that involves Beatrice and Benedick. Which is why I picked the song "I Hate Everything About You" by Three Days Grace, Its a wonderful song that illustrates a couple who is in love but don't like anything about each other, somehow they make it work but they aren't sure how. When Benedick falls for Beatrice it is purely a lie as to what happened, they knew he was in the garden listening to his false story and theyknew he would fall hopelesly in love, and the same happened to Beatrice. They absolutly hated each other until they heard rumors that the other was going completely head-over-heels for the other one. In the song as it is heard in the chorus "I hate everything about you, Why do I love you?" even though Benedick is in love he knows he shouldn't be to a point, but he is and in the end love always prevails and Beatrice and him get married.
