Amanda Seyfried Is A Woman of No Importance

This adaptation of Oscar Wilde's comedy A Woman of No Importance has been in the works for a while now, with Lindsay Lohan reportedly having the main role initially but then backing out of the project a year ago. Next up there were rumors that Sienna Miller was taking the lead role, and at the time of this posting, her name is still on the project's IMDB page. But today various news sources are reporting that Amanda Seyfried will in fact play the main character.

Annette Bening and Sean Bean will also star in the film in which "Seyfried will play an American who finds herself falling in love with the womanizing Lord Illingworth (Bean) in the English countryside until his mother (Bening) throws a wrench in his plans."

Surely Oscar Wilde deserves a better actress than Lindsay Lohan, but between Sienna Miller and Amanda Seyfried, do you think Seyfried is the better choice? I personally prefer Seyfried, and she won't have to fake an American accent, which is nice. I just think they should get on with production already!

The information about Sean Bean playing Annette Bening's son is incorrect. His character is about the same age as her's. A fantastic actor and incredibly hot for his age, I find it completely believable that a very young woman could fall for him.

well i think that it could be a great project for amanda seeing as how she hasn't really been in anything that i'd really say is 'compelling' material. it's nice to see that after mamma mia she's being considered for more and more things, and the fact that LL isn't in the mix anymore bodes VERY nicely for the movie

I am glad that people are making all of these classics recently. It's bringing class back to Hollywood. I am glad that Lindsay Lohan isn't going to act in the movie--she would have ruined it. And I'm not a big fan of Sienna Miller. I can't wait to see how Amanda Seyfried does.

sean bean! *excited* but yeah, definitely a huge age gap there... and looks it too, especially since he looks so rough around the edges and she's so doe-eyed and young.

I'm on the Amanda bandwagon. I LOVE her in Big Love, and she did such a great job with her role in Mama Mia. She's awesome! And hey, SHE won't infect half the cast!

Holy age difference! Sean Bean is 25 years older than Amanda Seyfried and playing her love interest? And Annette Benning is a year older than him and playing his mother? Couldn't they have found an actor about 20 years younger?

I am really relieved that Amanda is going to get the part, can't stand Miller and her drama's off stage, plus her homewrecking antics don't go down well with me.

Wow that is a little ridiculous about the age thing. If he were a very young looking guy maybe not, but he def looks around his age. I didn't realize who Bean was till I looked him up on IMDB - I love him from LOTR!

Yes, love her! "I have a fifth sense. It's like I have ESPN or something. My breasts can always tell when it's going to rain." Also, bravo to no Sienna Miller. Can. Not. Stand.

Ummm ... more like he's all of a freakin YEAR YOUNGER than her!! Annette Benning 'sb-day May 1958, Sean Bean's b-day April 1959 according to I had to lok it up right away because that was what struck me as odd too! I thought he was maybe about 10 years younger too. That is just weird. But Amanda Seyfried is my new favorite actress. I adore her so I am excited about anything new of hers.
