Nothing can ruin a movie more than a misplaced actor. I saw Star Trek II yesterday, and you just can't have the bartender in Cheers on the bridge. She served as a constant reminder that this isn't the future at all, only a movie set.
I'm not sure which came first - Cheers or the movie, but at least I felt that she ruined much of the excitement.

Here's a list of other misplaced (?) actors, vote for the one you think is the worst case of them all.

Kevin Costner in Robin Hood.

Star Trek II was made in 1982, and was Kirstey Alley's big break in showbusiness.  (I think it says "Introducing Kirstey Alley" in the opening credits actually).

She replaced Shelley Long on Cheers during it's 6th season in 1987.

Val Kilmer just looks too....dainty and fragile...to be a good Batman. I have no idea who the hell decided to cast him. The man has no charisma and just sort of stands there a lump. Like in the latter Batman movies, the villians' over the top performance saves the movie.

On the same topic, George Clooney?!? He's much to light and happy to be Batman too. It's obvious that he was also a wrong choice. Bring back Keaton!!

I don't like any of the Batman movies.

The 3-part comic series Hard Boiled, by Frank Miller (Batman: The dark knight returns) and Geoff Darrow (co-creator of The Matrix)is going to be made into a film, starring Nicholas Cage.  I can't stand that guy.  Bruce Willis would be a much better choice for an extremely violent android character. But I'll go see that movie anyway.

I think Scott Bakula is a fairly good Enterprise captain and I did watch him in Quantum Leap.

I read Alam Cumming (Boris the computer Nerd in Goldeneye) is gonna be Nightcrawler in X2, which I can totally picture him doing, funny dude.

Nicolas Cage in Con Air and Face Off, he just looks too depressed all the time.
Also Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker.

That's still not as bad as Halle Berry stinking up the new James Bond movie this winter. From Oscar winner to Bond Girl in one year? God, how embarrassing....   roll eyes

Don Cheadle in Ocean's Eleven - don't get me wrong, I like Don.  It's just that cockney accent - why ?
Even the DVD commentary says he was told to drop it ... no wonder he went uncredited.

Wasn't he also in Spy Kids? What is with him cameoing in crappy movies all the time? That boy ain't right.

I think you're thinking of Insomnia. I saw it a couple weeks ago...I've been too lazy to review it in the movie review thread, but it was really good. And Robin Williams was good.

One Hour Photo looks pretty cool too. Robin Williams is probably the least funny man on the entire planet, but I must begrudgingly admit that he handles dramatic roles pretty well.

I don't know, that would probably require watching Spy Kids, I'll tell you what.

Finally, I've found someone who agrees with me! His whole career is just a series of breakneck voices changed every few seconds. He's more irritating than anything else.

His drama's okay, though. Ignoring "Patch Adams" and "Jacob the Liar", of course.

Never saw Jacob the Liar, but yeah, Patch Adams was terrible. Though to be fair, even though it might be considered "drama", it still heavily featured Williams' usual "look at me, I'm so zany!" comedy act.

You can't get any colder than absolute zero. Pauley Shore and Carrot Top and everyone else may suck just as much, but they can never be LESS funny than Robin Williams, the absolute zero of comedy.

What do people think of "Seven" or just "7"
Apparently Kevin Spacey's John Doe character was voted second most scariest villian ever, just after Hannibal Lecter. I was wondering what people who have seen this thought about it, because generally Kevin has been known to play much more gentle roles, I wonder what he was like playing a homicidal maniac?

I really started to dislike Kevin Spacey after he stopped doing his scumbag characters and instead did more heartwarming roles. The two merged in "American Beauty", which is still a great movie, but afterwards Spacey chose to instead pick the weepy films over the crime films.  He was great in "Seven", so cold yet dangerous. I love his Verbal Kent from "The Usual Suspects".

To be honest, I don't usually watch movies that have Ricki Lake in them, but my girlfriend has Serial Mom on DVD... I'm sure she acts even worse in other movies  smile
I find it strange that Arnold Schwarzenegger hasn't got a single vote yet, maybe you all have been accustomed to him as a comedy actor.

Well I do feel sometimes they put Arnie in roles that are like
Arnie: "Hallo, myn naam iz Yohn Simtd, I haf lived in Armerika oll mie lyfe, myn fawfaters ver von Iraland" etc

But not all his movies where he's playing a American (but that's most of them) are all bad, some are quite good. But I accept him in these particular movies unless they try and emphasise he is 100% American (No Osterreich zere) and then I lose it.  roll eyes
