They should cast Halston Sage as Barbie.

I can't say any kind of Barbie movie is something I'd be interested in seeing and so I won't, but this does sound like the kind of thing that would trigger the anti-SJW/feminist people quite strongly (which is always deliciously ironic as they love to complain about how those groups are... well, oversensitive and whiny), so I say bring it on for that reason alone. Their reactions will provide me with more entertainment than watching the movie would.

This is too weird and jokey for me to buy it as real.

That said, if it was an animated movie, Schumer would be a fine choice to voice Barbie, but not necessarily a live action Barbie.

Kate McKinnon would be a much better choice to play a weird live action Barbie IMO.

Interesting choice. I like Amy but she is no Barbie.

I also thought Sony hired Diablo Cody to write this. Wonder what happened? http://deadline.com/2015/03/diablo-c...es-1201386146/

Her, Jennifer Lawrence, Renee Zellweger, and Jennifer Coolidge should all be in one movie together as sisters.

You apparently didn't read the article close enough, unless you don't understand what playing the "title role" means.

Clearly there are many Barbie purists on this forum who feel that the integrity of the brand is at stake.

Would have been interesting to see people's reactions if they cast a black/Latina/Asian actress instead.

THIS SCREAMS OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!! MAKE BARBIE WHITE AGAIN BLERGH A BLOO BLOOP

Wouldn't phase me one bit, since there are Barbies of various ethnicities out there. Can't speak for other people who avoid the Barbie aisle because of that though lol.

She's the star of the movie, yes, but she's not playing the traditional Barbie role. Barbie is a universe with different characters in it.

"Schumer will play a character who lives in Barbieland, among all of the various Barbie characters beloved by doll collectors (there are dolls covering over 180 careers). In a fish-out-of-water story reminiscent of films like Splash and Big, Schumer’s Barbie gets kicked out, basically because she’s not perfect enough, is a bit eccentric and doesn’t quite fit the mold."

Eh, my reaction was less of something like that and more of a "well, this isn't going to sit well with the internet". Plus Sony has been coming up with frankly bizarre ideas for movies lately, like that frickin' emoji movie that's coming out next year.

But what do you expect when the head of your movie division is also the same guy who tried to sabotage the X-Men series (among many other dumb choices)?

Burn Sony's movie division to the ground and salt the earth.

I don't even care they're going in a different direction with Barbie.

I just think that Schumer is both not "weird" enough and not the right choice for the role.

I know what it says, I can read. And she's playing "Barbie," period, just like every trade is reporting and this article starts out by saying. Whether it's a different Barbie, or there's hundreds of them, whatever. But she's still cast as Barbie, whether you want to make semantics out of it or not. Still a horrible casting decision of one of the most unappealing people in show business.
