So PopEater has made the casting call: Who should play Susan Boyle?

Meryl Streep -- "She can sing and she's already in a biopic mood (Julie & Julia). Also, we're pretty sure she can act."

Helena Bonham Carter -- "The eccentric actress has the hair and quirky streak for it."

Drew Barrymore -- "After old-ing herself up in Grey Gardens to widespread acclaim, this should be a breeze."

Check out the whole list on PopEater here. You may be surprised by who they pick - including a man other than Robin Williams!
