Films where they got the wrong actor?

    Casino Royale.

    Daniel Craig was at least good in that Bond outing( not keen on his other Bond films). Remember thinking Gerald Butler would have been better in Casino Royale. ££££

    Colin Farrell as "Alexander" the great didn't quite have the gravitas for the role, imo.

    I'd agree with Nicholson, but only because his performance is a bit off. It's like he's crazy already so when he does go insane it's not that big of a shock. That's more on Kubrick, though.

    As far as "Alexander", yeah, Farrell wasn't the best choice, but I think there was some problems with casting in that one. I think Stone's original choice wasn't available (but maybe I'm not remembering that right).

    I’m going to disagree, but I don’t want to bog down the thread arguing about it as it would be a unfair detour.

    Hm, 2004 ... I don’t know. The movie wasn’t very good. A different actor wouldn’t have helped it that much. But to answer your question:

    Brad Pitt maybe?

    He would just do a Jack Nicholson impersonation ( and a good one). :)

    I would have said Gerard Butler in Casino Royale if that happened.

    Paul Dano in There Will Be Blood. I know it's hard to be on the same screen with Daniel Day-Lewis and be equal, but he just didn't seem right in the role of Eli & Paul Sunday.
     
  19. Oh ! Have you not seen his clip on YouTube where he re-enacts ' The Shining '? He nails Nicholson.

    Not in 1978. Maybe 20 years ago? I just like Kubrick’s vision. I know most like the book and mini-series better.

    Well, I might have picked Brad Pitt, but he was starring in Troy that year. :shrug:
