Match actors with a dream role they haven't done yet.

Your dream, not theirs. It can include characters who already exist or just a “type” you’d like to see them play that they haven’t yet.

Good question, and it’s one that’s come up over the years, but off the top of my head, I can’t recall many specific examples - but yeah, I know I’ve said “so and so was born to play…”

I know I’ve said that Veronica Lake would have been well suited to playing one of Hitchcock’s cool blondes.

And that if Japan ever did Bond, Akira Takarada would have been perfect casting (he did do spy parodies, Golden Eyes and Ironfinger (“100 Shot, 100 Killed”))

I used to hope to see Cate Blanchett do Tennessee Williams; then -Voilà- she played Blanche in Streetcar on Broadway - then effectively played that character on film in Blue Jasmine, and she was incredible, just as I imagined she would be.

Hopefully something will come to mind later as I know there are good examples.
