Mia Wasikowska to Play Alice in Wonderland

The Search Is Over: Tim Burton Chooses His Alice!

Australian actress Mia Wasikowska is the lucky girl who will portray Alice in Tim Burton's upcoming film for Disney, Alice in Wonderland. You may not recognize Mia right away but she's not a complete unknown either: She's been steadily making a name for herself, working opposite big names on both television and in the movies.

Mia is a series regular on HBO's In Treatment, will appear in the drama Defiance starring Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber, and will play the young Amelia Earhart in Amelia starring Hilary Swank.

Rumors have been swirling as to which young actress would nab the coveted role and you guys even threw in your own suggestions. I've heard great things about her from fans of In Treatment, but what do you think? Have you ever seen her on the HBO show? Does she look like the kind of quirky, cute Alice that might be good in a Tim Burton project?

Sorry I'm a little late on this but I have to say she was EXCELLENT on In Treatment, the only patient I did not miss one episode of...I'm excited to see her taking on the role of Alice, should be interesting!

A little late here but while she certainly has a look that can fit with 'Alice' - I would have thought they would choose a younger girl for the role. Wasn't Alice like a tween? hmm...

She kinda reminds me of Claire from Lost. Who, incidentally, would probably be my first casting choice for Alice.

She's adorable and looks sweet. She'll make a good Alice.

hmm i can't wait to see how this turns out. i do remember her vaguely from being in a few different things - and i think that there's opportunity for her to be good as Alice.

I am so annoyed now, especially as she's Australian! I was that little bit closer. :P.

I think she is the perfect choice for the role. Should be a wonderful movie.

She is fantastic on In Treatment. She reminds me a lot of Darlene from Roseanne.

I just looked at the article and now I'm even more excited because Linda Woolverton is writing the screenplay for it. She wrote the screenplays to two of the best Disney movies, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King.

I would never think that he would've picked her. I haven't seen her acting work, but her looks are kinda mediocre.

Huh, she certainly looks the part. But I'm still extremely excited!

Isn't Marilyn Manson doing some "Alice" kind of movie as well? With Lily Cole?

Very pretty girl.

So THAT'S where I remember her from. Pretty close to a perfect choice, by today's pathetic casting standards.

I loved her on In Treatment . . . she was the only patient I didn't want to kill at some point.

She is cute. Has that innocent look that Alice needs. Also much better than some of the other choices that were being thrown around.

Cute. Good choice. I'm glad it's an unknown. And I'm REALLY glad it's not Lindsay Lohan. But Tim would never be that stupid.

She kinda looks like a young Gwyneth Paltrow/Jennifer Jason Leigh mix.
