impossible? 50 years ago casting a dead actor was a challenge. these days, death is barely a minor inconvenience.

besides, we all know bela is hanging out with elvis in graceland.

Here's hoping...

I just watched Bride of the Monster again, that movie cracks me up. Lugosi is amazing in it, especially when Tor hurls him across the room. Lugosi just seems so old and innocent, it's hard not to like him.

I always said if I was ever going to make a movie I would cast Don Knotts in a minor dramatic role. Seriously.

Pat Morita.

Can I get a casting credit if you end up using him?

And he not really obscure but he should be getting far more work.

John Hurt.

Actually, neither of them are really that obscure are they?
