Much Ado About Nothing
By: William Shakespeare
Benedick: Vin Diesel
Benedick will be played by Vin Diesel because as shown in most of his movies, Vin can be the "loud-mouth", and pull it off very well. This is shown very well throughout the Fast and Furious Franchise. Vin also is a well respected actor, much like Benedick is in Much Ado about Nothing. I chose him mainly because he is very entertaining in almost all of his movies, and he will be able to bring that energy and entertainment to this production.
Don John: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Don John will be played by Arnold because Don John, being the illegitimate brother of Don Pedro, clearly the two cannot look alike, and Arnold and Will do not look alike at all. I choose Arnold for this role because he has a great background in movies, as well as he's very good at being the villain. This is shown in the Terminator movies, where he constantly switches between hero and villain. Another great thing about Arnold is that he's a very menacing person, along with a man of few words, so he fits Don John very well in that aspect.
Don Pedro: Will Smith
Don Pedro will be played by Will Smith because Don Pedro is a noble man, a prince as a matter of fact. He should be played by not only a good looking actor, but a talented one as well. I chose Will Smith to play Don Pedro mainly because Will Smith, having been in this little thing called The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, he's technically already played a "Prince" so he has the experience. Smith also is very much like Don Pedro in the aspect that he is well respected, and both of them are very well spoken. So I feel Will Smith could fit the role of Don Pedro very well.
