Writer's Block: What's my motivation?
Chrolli, Verbotene Liebe, Olli, Christian
If you could replace any actor/actress in a film with someone else, who would you replace, and why?

Oh my goodness - there are so many answers to this question!

I'll just have to start somewhere and make my way through the actors/actresses that annoy me most.

First of all, I would bring Richard Harris back from the dead, and give him back the role of Dumbledore. Michael Gambon's portrayal of him is just tragic. Not that I don't normally like Michael Gambon, but a guy who refuses to read the Harry Potter books because he wants to "make the character his own" is doomed to fail in portraying said character accurately. I would also replace Emma Watson with someone who could actually act.

I would, obviously, replace Kristen Stewart as Bella in the Twilight series. We already have Robert Pattinson who only has one expression (which, though frustrating, is nonetheless acceptable, given that he's doing the whole vampire-with-tortured-soul-thing. Their type is usually not that expressive). I don't know who I would replace her with, but in my opinion, it should be someone new, someone who hasn't been tainted by the drama of Hollywood.

I would also, generally, replace all American actors who think they can pull off a British accent, with actual British actors. All the extremely fake accents are driving me nuts.

And Kim Catrall as a vulcan in "The Undiscovered Country"? I'm convinced someone must have been hit repeatedly in the head with a sledge hammer to come to the conclusion that that was a good idea. I would replace her with ANYONE ELSE.

Oh, and Uma Thurman as Ulla in the film version of "The Producers" ... I mean, come on, she is not the only tall blonde in the world. They could have given the role to, oh, I don't know, someone who could SING? And maybe even an actual Swedish person? Someone who could say the words properly?

I have a further list of grievances, but I am afraid I will put you all to sleep before finishing. Needless to say, there are A LOT of strange casting choices made in Hollywood.

Agreed wholeheartedly on HP. And I just recently watched the Star Trek movies, and with the exception of the most recent two, holy crap they were campy. >.<

At least I like Leonard Nimoy.

I like the Star Trek movies! But then I like the whole concept, so that probably helps.

And Leonard Nimoy. Is. Awesome.
