Not really cast though, was he?

 

Copland on the other hand... Demolition man too.

Well they did want to cast Burt Reynolds but Stallone refused to sell the script unless he could play him. 
 

they did then slash the budget of the film though.

Leslie Nielsen in Airplane! At the time, he wasn't known for comedic acting and even in this film, he basically plays it straight. But how well does it work!

They're the best comedy films. Brian in Life of Brian plays a serious fella throughout while all around him everything is going to shit.

Kelsey Grammer as Beast in X-Men was an outstanding piece of casting.

 

joe Pesci in goodfellas and casino. 
 

not sure when or which film it started but the move of Matthew McConaughey from shit Rom Com actor to the what he is now was a brilliant choice.

To be fair he did A Time to Kill 7 years before How to Lose a Guy in 10 days.... 

 

Superb actor though, I love him. Cool guy in real life as well.

Ah right fair enough. Not seen A time to kill... will need to add it to the list.

Superb film. Plays a lawyer in the deep south defending a black guy accused of killing two white fellas who raped and killed his daughter. Sandra Bullock and Kevin Spacey are in it as well. 

 

So is Samuel L Jackson but it's a 90's movie so you would have known that anyway.

A time to kill is amazingly well done. Won't spoil it but one line from McConaughey is a killer.

The adults cast in the Harry Potter films were virtually perfect, especially Alan Rickman as Severus Snape. Just a shame Richard Harris died. He was a much better Dumbledore that Michael Gambon.

Alan Rickman in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves was brilliant.

Completely over the top.

I thought that was a slam against Rowling for using adverbs. Ick. 

Nah, just that Gambon was downright weird in the Dumbledore role. Harris was a calm, stately figure, Gambon over the top and neurotic.

Oh, totally fucked it up. Harris was perfect as a choice. Gambon thought he was playing John McClane from Die Hard.

He should've won an Oscar for Dazed & Confused in 1993.
