I think hayden christenson pulled of darth vader fine ........ Keanu though ... hasn't pulled off ANYTHING
nobody else could portray Ted Theodore Logan
keanu reeves as John Constantine
Clive Owen in King Arthur. It's a very underrated movie, and I think most of that is because of Owen's portrayal. Most of the actors around him were experienced stage actors and they simply embarrassed him.
I also agree with Kirsten Dunst as Mary-Jane and Brad Pitt as Achilles (another movie that would have been much improved by a better lead actor.)
I wouldn't say he has no range, I just don't think he cares enough to put in the extra effort. He knows that if he shows up and plays his usual, awesome self that it'll be great and he'll still get accolades.
Not strictly a movie, but Avery Brooks as Captain Sisko in the Deep Space 9 series. That was painful to watch.
Adam Sandler in any movie.
Ben Affleck in Daredevil, that's probably been mentioned already.
That wooden plank who played Darth Vader in the prequels.
If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com
Val Kilmers batman.
no wait. Klooneys.
no, Killmer, gotta be Kilmer.
ugh, but Klooney was so horrible.
see what you've done? now i'm arguing with myself...
And if you want to go with more Twilight actors, Robert Pattinson should not have been cast as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. That almost made me not want to go see it when it came out.
Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon; I don't think I've ever seen him in either a bad movie or play a bad role. To be fair to Natalie Portman though (Padmé's actress), her only real role was to stand around and look attractive, which she nailed; in my opinion she did a better job of playing the 'hot action girl' far better than Carrie Fisher ever did.And yeah, her acting was pretty bad. Tbh, now that I think of it, almost every one from the 2 trilogy was a pretty shitty actor, asides from Mace, the Chancelor and problaby Obi Wan and his master, I can't really remember now.
Not just the lines, but the whole plot was garbage. It was serviceable at the end of episode I (save for the beyond retarded love story) and then it got all fucked up in episode II; there wasn't anywhere else to go but down.They just gave him the most horrible lines and angles, it wasn't his fault.
Compared to 'The Wicker Man' and all of its bees? Puh-lease. Frankly, I think he's a pretty blase actor in nearly everything he does.Not sure if it was mentioned but Nicholas Cage... GHOSTRIDER :-( Why God Why.
Throw Megan Fox in there, too. Being stupidly hot doesn't protect you from being as useless as the main character, if not more-so.Also, if you want to talk about bad casting, how about Shea Lebouf (or however the fuck you spell his name) in the Transformers movies?
While I'm on a roll Jeff Bridges in Tron: Legacy. He's easily one of my favorite actors and I know he was in the original, but why in the mother of FUCK did they try and take the brilliant character of 'The Dude' and shoe-horn it back into Tron: Legacy? Ugh. He also wasn't great in Arlington Road, but that really wasn't a great movie to begin with.
1) Jaden Smith - Dre Parker - Karate Kid 2010
2) Jake Lloyd - Ani - Star Wars Ep:1
3) Noah Ringer - Ang - The Last Airbender
The second image should give you an idea how long Fury has been around, since the cover price for that issue is $.12...
I think in Ultimates they even muse about who would play them on film and Nick Fury immediately picks Samuel L Jackson, so they were pretty overt about the comparison
Id rather have a Sam Jackson then a David Hasselhoff like that god awful film he starred in.
All the Marvel Avengers film are pretty much based on The Ultimate Universe. Just makes it easier to film then having all the back story from the normal universe.
At least Nick Fury is still a bad ass as he was in either comic.
What's wrong with Kristen Stewart? Just because a girl isn't bubbly and giggly doesn't mean she's a bad actress. That's just how she is.
Doesn't she go to the mirror and make expressions? Almost all actors do that, it helps a lot so I don't understand why she's still the same...
