    Do made for TV movies count? Because Molly Ringwald as Fran Goldsmith in the Stand. Granted that had a lot of things wrong with it, but man, that was a poor choice.

    yeah they didn't really, but the casting wasn't horrible, like it could have been good, just like THe last Airbender.

    I agree with this to an extent, the guy who played Iro was badass, he made a good a Iro and deffinately had all the acting talent in that movie. My biggest complain about the movie? Ang was pronounced Ong as well as Katara and Soka being white instead of inuit. Plus the kid who plaed Ang was a little to fat...

    Other:

    The entire cast of the Last Airbender movie. It was a completely travesty of a film and it soils the original anime (Shut up I don't care if it's not Japanese, it's anime in my book). It was a horrible decision and I hope M. Shamalama never comes out with his planned sequel for it.

    well yeah the movie was the worst shit ever but I really think the cast could have been good given a not shitty director/script.

    Hard to think what's the absolute worst movie I've seen but Mike Meyer's "Guru" was rather painful to watch, I have to admit. Gotta say Justin Timberlake was probably the funniest character in it.

    Personally I don't care about the race of the actor vs. that of the comic as long as the actor portrays the character how I want to see them portrayed (read: not like Ryan Reynolds in the Wovlie movie).
    Marvel hasn't, but...

    Jaimie Fox will be playing Electro in the Amazing Spider-Man sequel.
    Michael Clark Duncan played Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin in Daredevil.

    So there's a couple of race swaps from comic to movies for Marvel properties (owned by Sony and Fox respectively).

    Affleck wasn't that bad as Daredevil. The Director's Cut is a vast improvement. More Daredevil, less attempt to shoehorn the love story into the movie.

    And I liked Edward Norton as Banner. XD

    For the poll, I voted for Hayden as Vader. He was just not a good choice for that role.

    On a scale of it being so bad that it's good, yes. But no, it is not gold. As for me there is just too many to even count. I don't even know where to start. If we want to go most recent, well Kristen Stewart to start. Probably one of the worst actors I've ever come across. I seriously think a monkey could act and show more emotion than her.

    What film were you watching?

    What will always gall me is Lucas inserting him at the end of Return of the Jedi, spoils the film for me.

    Val Kilmer's Batman or maybe Russel Brand(in general)
    sTyLnk...could not agree more I have never once seen her show an emotion not even in her roles as a child or at a movie premier getting photos taken possibly the worst actress in recent years.

    I just remembered.

    Tobey Maguire, god, I hated him on the Spiderman movies, horrible. He didn't fit at all as Spiderman.
