If we're talking moving an actor back and forward in time for a role, a young Kirk Douglas would've put in as good a performance in Cuckoo's Nest as Nicholson, maybe even better. Nicholson would've made a great Jordan Belfort. Daniel Day Lewis in Last Temptation of Christ. Lee Marvin and Charles Bronson in Kill Bill. A young Mel Gibson in Max Max Fury road. 


If we're talking strictly recasting... Christian Slater was the wrong casting for True Romance. One of the ones that really bugs me - and it shouldn't because it's inconsequential - is Mike Myers as the General in Inglorious Bastards. It just pisses me off because it's a really pivotal scene in the movie that explains the objective of the mission to the audience and all they're thinking about is "that's Austin Powers". Not to mention his awful English accent.

Tom Watt was the original choice to play Lieutenant James Dempsey but he was unavailable, as he had just been cast as a Lofty in Eastenders. The chemistry between Watt and Glynis Barber would have been immense, in my opinion.

You don't rate Will Smith?

He's not bad in dramas but he's crap in action films and is far too animated to play a mysterious, stoic character like Neo.

    • Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his true joy in getting his squad back together for full-scale training ahead of the resumption of the Premier League season on the 17th of June.

      The Reds stand on the cusp of a deserved title victory, needing just two more wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch number 19.

      Rather than making up for lost time, Klopp told the Official site that he is taking a methodical approach.

      “We could work on all the things we wanted to work on. 

      “The first week was already really good with the small groups, I enjoyed that as well, because it was just important to get on track again, to get used to the pitch and ball and boots and all that stuff. 

      “And now we work on tactical things, that works really well.

      “We don't have to be match-fit now.

      “We try it with increasing intensity, day by day, but we have to be fit on the 19th or 20th, whichever day they will give us against Everton, I think. 

      “That’s the moment when we want to be at 100 per cent."

      Once the season resumes in earnest, it will be the best part of three months since a competitive match was played.

      In that time, players have been able to give their mind and body a rest, but with everything set to be condensed, the manager feels one season will roll into the next.  

      “It is a roundabout three weeks until the resumption.

      “That is good. We want to use that and we will. It’s our pre-season; how I said, we don’t expect a long break in between the seasons, so this is a very important period for us.

      “We never had nine weeks without football training in our lives – since we played football, pretty much. That’s all different but interesting as well.

      “We enjoy the situation, that’s really all good. 

      “And it makes all the difference for us, to be honest, to come together and have this hour or two here together.

      “You get this contact, feedback as well on the pitch directly, not via a computer or a screen. It's a massive, massive lift."

      The next step in the process is the actual dates of when the remaining fixtures will be played.

      Klopp says that is something the whole squad is looking forward to hearing about.   "Now of course, it’s more and more interesting when we play where, the times are really important because we will see how we can organise the travel stuff.    "So, the situation keeps us busy, that’s absolutely OK.   "But on the pitch everything is fine, that’s really great.   "Around, we organise it as good as possible and use the situation.”
