Dream Casting: Brokeback Mountain

We consider our ideal casting for this recently announced stage adaptation

With the news that producer Tom O'Connell has acquired the rights to Annie Proulx's award-winning short story Brokeback Mountain, we couldn't help but don our casting (cowboy) hats once more.

Who would you cast in this production? Let us know on facebook and twitter.

Ennis Del Mar - Jamie Campbell Bower

Currently starring as Joe in Bend It Like Beckham, we'd love to see Jamie swap the pitch for the peaks in our dream cast.

Jack Twist - Ben Forster

From Jesus Christ to Buddy the Elf, Forster's stage career has already been quite eclectic, we're sure there's room for a randy cowboy in there somewhere.

Alma Beers Del Mar - Olivia Vinall

Following acclaimed performances in Othello, King Lear and The Hard Problem at the National, it's time Vinall got on her horse and lent her talents to another venue.

Lureen Newsome Twist - Phoebe Waller-Bridge

She may have become a household name in ITV's Broadchurch, but we're hoping this WhatsOnStage Award-winner will be tempted back to the stage by this Rodeo Rider role made famous by Anne Hathaway.
