During an open Q&A on Twitter about “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” director Bryan Singer was
asked about one of his other films, “The Usual Suspects.”
An eager fan wanted to know who the director would cast in the film if he was to remake it tomorrow.
Surprisingly, Singer answered and the cast list doesn’t disappoint.
Here’s what the dream cast would look like:
Agent Dave Kujan (Chazz Palminteri) — Edward James Olmos (“Blade Runner”)
Dean Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) — Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”)
Fenster (Benicio Del Toro) — Joseph Gordon Levitt (“Don Jon”)
McManus (Stephen Baldwin) — Dane DeHaan (“Lawless”)
Hockney (Kevin Pollak) — Jonah Hill (“The Wolf of Wall Street”)
Kobayashi (Pete Postlethwaite) — Michael Fassbender (“Prometheus”)
Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) — Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock” / “Star Trek Into Darkness”)
Edie Finneran (Suzy Amis) — Jennifer Lawrence (“The Hunger Games”)
Here they all are together (minus Lawrence):

Hard to believe, but “The Usual Suspects” is nearly 20 years old.
