When will you celebrity columns let the dear woman rest in peace?
Instead of worrying about who is going to play who in this movie why not worry about the future of that poor baby girl, Danneilynn? Perhaps, you should waste your time doing someone some good instead of poking fun at a little girls dead mother...

TMZ your choices and are not very good. try again, anna is dead it is time to move on, let Dannielynn have a normal life with her Dad, Larry, and with any amount of luck Howard the big coward will fade into the wood work.........RAP

I don't know enough about Laurie Metcalf to know whether she would make a good Debra Opri, but if she can consistently act in "obnoxious" and "noxious" mode, then she would probably be pretty good casted as Debra Opri. But really by FIRST pick for Debra Opri is the woman who plays on the TV sit com "Christine", JULIA LOUIS DREYFUS, now there is a PERFECT Debra Opri. I know she is a comedienne and probably hasn't done dramatic acting BUT she is obnoxious and noxious and I think she could handle the roie of Opri all the way down to the flirting and smiling in the camera, the loud voice, and really Opri is kind humerous to watch and listen to.

Nah, Laurie Metcalf is definitely NOT the best choice for Opri, IMO.

i'm also for Julia Louis Dreyfus ^.. and she is a great actress.. i really like her work

but i think it's sad to make a movie so quickly about anna.. she can finally rest.. and what are people doing.. make a movie about her life. i don't think they should make a movie.. her life was hard enough, she lost her son.. and all her family/drugs problems..i think they should let het rest in peace.. she deserves it.. next to her son Daniell.
they only make a movie 'cause there's a lot of speculation around her life (before she died & after) so they will accrue a lot f money (just because she died! that's so sad,, those masterminds shoul learn to google and hopefully they find a real life, so the next time a celebrity or other person dies they will let them rest!

I think Debra Winger would play a good Debra Opri. She is absolutely wonderful.
