You make some excellent points, Martin. I guess I am scared (like you, and many others!)that the movie will bomb and be an embarassment if they get shoddy actors. Spacey is good--yes, but you are right-- an unknown could come in there and kick some serious butt. there is alot of undiscovered talent out there! (and under-utilized talent-- hence my suggestion of Mark M)
I hope they get a good casting director.
I don't envy their job for this film...

have you heard that Geoffery Rush will be playing Peter Sellers in an upcoming movie (TV only I think) about his life?

Personally, I think that is in capable hands... thank god. I couldn't bear to watch a piss poor actor play one of the greatest comedic geniuses of all time...

Totally agree that the Hollywood Machine can churn out some serious crapola.
Let's hope they don't screw this up. A lot of Python fans will be pretty steamed!
enjoying the debate!

TOTALLY agree-- american filmakers need to cast more 'unknowns" and not just in the slasher flicks!

Geoffrey Rush will hopefully do a good job with Sellers. I like him. He's got one of those great comic faces. He should pull it off with some style..
Then again he's an Australian, and as I said before the role should go to a Brit or an Ozzie for the Monty Python film..
The fact you still believe Spacey will be good for this film does worry me slightly!!
Personally I don't give a Fig if this movie bombs or not, true Python fans will see it for what it is anyway..
A film I never ever want to see, did though have an amazing likeness in it. It was 'Dumb and Dumberer' or something, and I must admit I actually thought it was Jim Carrey in this movie when I saw the poster. They guy who played Carrey, was I imagine an unknown in America??

Better go...
bye..

Aw, I just like Spacey. He's good at what he does. it's not like I'm going to start a campaign for him to get the part for of Cleese or something. It was Cori's suggestion anyway! :)
it was just an interesting thought.
should we campaign for Kevin Costner as Terry Gilliam? Or how about Keanu as Terry Jones?
(eeeeeeeeeeekkk! You know I am kidding, right?)
heeheeee...
(ugh)

I reckon Vin Diesel for Michael Palin, and Laurence Fishburn for Cleese...

I really like Spacey's acting too. I have watched 'American Beauty' 4 or 5 times and everytime it totally rips me apart. It's an amazing film, and it leaves my emotionally drained..Spacey was brilliant in this film, please tell me he got an Oscar for it. Annette Bening was brilliant too. I think you can see a bit of your life in 'American Beauty', that's what makes it amazing..

Vin Diesel? LOL!
 
Re: Walk like a Python by Martin99 on 3 March 2004 5:53pm
 
Sorry, maybe I've missed something, but what does LOL mean? (o8

Vin Diesel is a great comedian..Other great American Comedians= George Bush (snr and Jnr) - Ronald Reagen- Ronald Mcdonald-Bill Gates- Colin Powell -Madonna-Puff Daddy- the list is endless...

Laugh out Loud...
yes, i think our Presidents, past and present, have given us some of the greatest laffs known to mankind.
Don't forget J.Lo. She's a real knee slapper..
:)
 
Re: Walk like a Python by Martin99 on 3 March 2004 6:35pm
 

Thanks for the LOL thing..(: things make more sense now..!!

Hey come on, don't disrespect J.Lo. At least she's down to earth, unlike say Britney. I cannot imagine Britney making a humble record like 'Jenny from the block'..She says "Don't judge me by the rocks that I've got, I'm just jenny from the block"..You know she's a normal Brooklyn girl, who's blessed with an amazing voice and a stunning acting talent...You Americans should be proud to call her one of your own..

Bye..

 
Re: Walk like a Python by Helen on 3 March 2004 7:24pm
 
hey don't be dissing Britney... she's just a normal girl who like to have a little fun! Plus, her total respect of institution of marriage is most impressive! :)
Now don't get me going on Paris Hilton...
tangent? what tangent?
