Meryl Streep was steeped in Julia Child for 'Julia' role - USATODAY.com

I can't wait to see that! :bounce::bounce:

Anybody know if she is actually playing Julia Child or sort of a "Harvey" interacting with the "narrator" of the story? I haven't read the book but used to check out the blog occasionally.

For what its worth, Joan Cusak, would have been my firs choice.

I was a little iffy about it at first, but after seeing a commercial for it, I am looking forward to it! Joan Cusack might have been good looks wise, but Meryl seems to make it fun! Can't wait..

I read the book and enjoyed it; I don't know how I feel about it as a film. Kind of weird. Watching the trailer makes me want to wash my hands..

I keep forgetting how well Meryl can infuse herself into a role. Never read the book, but the premise is good. am looking forward to this movie.

Thank you for posting the link to the trailer!! I can't wait to see it. Meryl Streep isn't playing Julia as much as she's channeling her. Not at all over the top, IMHO.
