Casting Othello

Write a one-page (250-300 words) essay presenting and defending your choices for casting the roles of Othello and Iago.

Imagine that you are the casting director for a production of Othello. Which two actors you would most like to cast in the main roles? Be sure to justify your choices by explaining what you think the actors you pick would bring to the roles. Why are these actors especially well suited to play these parts?

For this, and all your essays in this class, please use strict MLA format.
