Casting of beloved characters – What’s wrong with Hollywood?

Ok, I’ve been gnawing at this for some time now and I think it’s time to let it out, to put the cards on the table. And let me start this whole thing off with a ‘What the !!#@*$ is wrong with Hollywood these days?! I mean, yeah sure, they make a lot of great casting choices, like Russell Crow in Noah, Joel Kinnaman in Robocop and Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy, those casting choices are (to me) as solid as Vin Diesel in the Fast-series or Hugo Weaving in V For Vendetta. But lately, it seems that every single casting director worth while has either been laid off or is on drugs.

What the @!!*$$# am I talking about? Well, I’ll tell’ya… it all started (for me, that is) with Gal Gadot being cast as Wonderwoman last year. Sure, after some SERIOUS consideration, the choice doesn’t sound quite as it did back then, but I’m still not convinced. And some time ago, we got the news that would break the fan-base in shatters… Jesse …. F*N…. Eisenberg as Lex Luthor?! I mean, WHAT THE FUCK?!!! What were they thinking? Or… what the FUCK are they thinking?! This is something I will NEVER STAND BEHIND, no matter what frikkin argument you throw at me. There is no Chris’n way that this can ever work. Not even with that lame excuse of a Superman-film that we got last year. No, I’m so far from convinced that not even a million dollars could change my mind even the slightest.

One would think that there weren’t much left to rant about when it comes to such things, right? But noo, there’s more.
We’ve ALL known for a long while now, that the Fantastic Four would be rebooted. Much like the Daredevil-film,  it was just a matter of time, but where Daredevil got its own TV-show, Fantastic Four will get their well deserved big screen-reboot and so, the search for cast members was on. Well, it’s over now, I guess….

Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara will be helming the sibling characters of Johnny and Sue Storm respectively. Does anyone see anything wrong with that? I mean, aren’t they brother and sister? Yeah, they are. Then, what in the world would possess the casting director to cast a black (oh, did I mean African-American? Sorry ’bout that) man to portray a white girls brother? Fuck if I know, but I do know this. It… Is.. WRONG!! Do it again and DO IT RIGHT!! Motherfuckers!!!

As for that, I really don’t have anything more to say other than this… Don’t they all look like something straight off a Disney Channel TV-show? Frikkin younglings, God damn it!!

Well, I think that will do for this rant, or do you want more? Let me know if you want more, ’cause I have more!



About hanktango

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
