Richard Madden may struggle to reach the throne as Robb Stark in HBO's Game of Thrones, but soon he'll be taking another throne in the live-action adaptation of Disney's Cinderella. We think Madden will look the part—although if they follow the look of Disney's Prince Charming, we don't know how we'll feel about him without his signature scruff. Madden is cast opposite Downton Abbey's Lily James who will play the girl with the shoe fetish—Cinderella.
In the past Cinderella has been taken on in some memorable (if not always in a good way) adaptations. In 1997, Brandy Norwood, Whitney Houston, and Victor Garber (to name a few in this star-studded movie) starred in Rodger and Hammerstein's Cinderella and in 2004, a young Anne Hathaway and Hugh Dancy took on (in my opinion) the questionable Ella Enchanted.
Can you imagine Disney's Cinderella in live-action form? How do you feel about Richard Madden as Prince Charming—right on or 'what were they thinkin!'?
