I know it.
Especially about things that mean a lot to me.
Like my favorite books or comic books made into movies.
So, I get it when people get upset when their personal casting couch is ignored and the 'powers that be' choose their own actors for our favorite characters.
Like... IMHO... I think Ben Affleck is going to suck as Batman. I feel he had his chance to be a superhero, Daredevil, and he couldn't pull it off.
Did you see Daredevil 2? Neither did I.
Now... I did not read the 50 Shades trilogy. I know all about it.
I'm not going to read it.
I know they have recently cast Charlie Hunnam as the lead character.
|Thank the ever-lovin' universe for this man.|
I know some 'fans' are all kinds of pissed about it.
That's fine. Be pissed.
I was pissed when they cast the movie from the book One for the Money by Janet Evanovich. None of those actors were right for their parts. None. I watched the movie when it came out on DVD and still thought the same thing.
But... I didn't protest against the movie or the actors. I didn't start an online petition to get the actors thrown off the film so that it could be recast with other actors. I didn't send hate mail or write threatening notes on social media to the actors.
But... some of the 50 Shades fans are doing just that. The movie studio has had to hire security for Mr. Hunnam because they are concerned for his safety.
That's just bull.
And, one of their major complaints? He's blond!
Have they never heard of hair color? People color their hair all the freakin' time!
I do it at least four times a year!
How can people be so nasty?
It just doesn't make sense to me.
Actors change their appearance.
Actors become their characters.
Actors can do amazing things when given the chance.
Let's all take it down a notch and just see what happens.
Hey...my book is out in paperback.
A few thousand words in the last couple of days.
Let's hope its good. :)
Pics like this make me wish I was crafty!
