People Share The Worst Casting Decisions In Film And TV

Why would you ever put this person in THAT role? Can they even act their way out of a paper bag? Well, hopefully we can all learn from the casting director's mistake.


u/judgejb63 asked:

What is the worst casting decision in the history of film or tv?

Here were some of the answers.


Ah, Racism

Imagine this. It's the mid-'80s. You're making a badass action movie about an immortal Scottish warrior who has spent 4 centuries defeating others of his kind in single combat. You sign Sean Connery...

...And cast him as a f*cking Egyptian pretending to be a Spaniard, then cast Christopher Lambert as the f*cking Highlander.

Red Dawn (2012)

Remember that movie where Josh Peck and Chris Hemsworth were supposed to be brothers?

AYASOFAYA

Okay this is probably the ONLY time in history I'll EVER be able to tell this story so here it goes!

I was in high school when Red Dawn was filming. They decided to do the airplane blowing up and the home town house shots in my neighborhood in Mount Clemens MI. Cue me being psyched because I was a big Drake and Josh fan (that nickelodeon show).

So I stop by one day and they have the caution tape up so you can't just walk right in. There's this huge line of young girls trying to see pretty much any actor but they're all busy. I squeeze my way to the front and ask the person (idk someone who worked on the film back end, keeping the crowds back) if we could come back and see some filming. He said yes, they're done for today but will be filming a car chase scene tonight at 3am.

I asked my mom, "if I wake up will you come with me to go watch the scene being filmed" she didn't think I would do it and said yes. I set an alarm, woke her disbelieving a** up (but she held her promise!) and we walked over there (a few blocks away). Walked right up to that same person from earlier in the day by the caution tape. I reveal how big of a fan I am for Josh Peck and he says, "just a moment, let me check".

All the sudden JOSH PECK WALKS UP with cheese and crackers in his mouth because he's on break. He looks hella tired because it's f*cking 3am and he's probably wondering what weird *ss fan is coming by at this time to get a pic. We got a photo with my old crappy point and shoot (which I'm super sad about because that photo has been lost to time somewhere). I had forgotten to bring something for him to sign! So I had him sign some random receipt for a movie ticket (lol, not his movie either).

I REALLY wish I was more prepared because that's the one and only time in my life I've ever met someone famous. And it just felt so goddamn cool! I was riding that high for months! And then the movie came out, and we all went to see it opening night in the local theater (AMC on Gratiot for you MI folks). It was an all around blast.

Dear Josh Peck, if you're reading this, I'm still a huge fan. I really looked up to you growing up and you were soooo cool! I hope you get to read this and maybe I can have a real photo and autograph when I'm more prepared and it's not 3am.

She Has The Range

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades movies... painful how little chemistry those two had!

Sk8rmom

There were a lot of reports that the pair had drama off-screen and that it had an impact on their performances.

I will say that Dornan is fantastic in The Fall... He plays a serial killer with a bondage fetish. Highly recommend it if you want to see his range.

I'm serious about the "range" comment. They're the same character on paper, but he works magic in his Fall role. I was actually tempted to cheer for him to get away with everything because he was so compelling.

Stop Taking Roles

Whoever was put in charge of casting Valerian. I loved the world building and the plot, it was pretty well written, but damn the leads screwed it over.

PieGuyThe3rd

Cara Delevingne might be the worst actress alive right now that gets big parts. Hopefully after her sh*t performances in Suicide Squad and Valerian that will stop.

Must be nice being raised in a well connected rich family.

SardinesGivePower

Poor Aang

Everyone in The Last Air Bender, bonus points for also having terrible screen writer and director decisions.

Lieutenant_Pugwash

It still pisses me off that not only did they mispronounce Aang's name, they pronounce it differently every time they say it at all, sometimes changing pronunciation halfway through a single line.

Aged Out

Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson. IIRC, he was 17 when filming the first movie, where Percy was supposed to be 12. Casting was part of the reason that the movie was terrible compared to the books.

WillPercyLeo

Don't forget about 24 year old Alexandra Daddario playing 12 year old Annabeth. Not even her hair color was right.

I'm like 90% sure they cast her just because of her eyes.

Colin1224

My Best Friend's Gadget

Rupert Everett as Dr Claw.

People complain about Matthew Broderick, but I can at least see why he was cast. His bumbling, over-the-top doofus shtick COULD have worked for Inspector Gadget. I mean, it didn't....but it could have. I get what they were going for.

But Dr Claw, one of the greatest children's villains of recent times, as a flamboyant gay fashion designer type??

MisterMarcus

Cock-kneed

Londoners have never forgiven Dick Van Dyke for his cockney accent in Mary Poppins.

50 years is a long time to bear a grudge, forgive him for the sequel this December.

Bigfoothobbit

In defense of Van Dyke-he has stated he wasn't sure he was doing it right. But the cast and crew was full of Londoners and nobody ever told him he was doing it wrong. Many Londoners might hate him for it, but apparently there was at least a handful that were ok with it.

Tgunner192

Never Happened

Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese.

Jason Clarke as John Connor
Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor
Matt Smith as ...whatever the hell that was supposed to be.

Let's just draw a big line through Genysis, shall we?

The Nic Cage Theorem

My theory of Nic Cage is that he goes so hard in the paint with every role, completely throwing himself into it without a hint of irony, that it makes you oddly care.

It's like when you got a corny school presentation in junior high. Most kids would make an effort to act like they didn't care, to signal how dumb they thought it was. That's pretty boring to watch, and it's cringey in retrospect because those kids actually care a lot about what the class thinks and are putting so much effort into seeming nonchalant. Then there's the kid who brings in fourteen dioramas, dresses in costume, passes around his own handouts and gets HELLA into it. You might snicker a little at first but that absolute insane level of enthusiasm is contagious, and somehow crosses the threshold into cool -- because supernerd doesn't actually give a fuck what the class thinks; he LOVES this shit.

Most actors would be too cool to take roles like Ghost Rider. They'd listen to publicists telling them it was cheesy and lame. And if they did take the role, they'd play it safe or with an undercurrent of irony.

But Cage? He doesn't care if you think it's dumb or corny. He takes roles he's interested in and gives it his 100000%. That's why even if the movie is total garbage, he's weirdly compelling to watch and somehow super likable, because he's crossed the nerd-cool threshold.

Dr. Jones

Shia laBeouf as Indiana Jones Jr.

I don't dislike the guy and think his meme only status is a little undeserved.

Before 2008 he seemed to have this niche as reluctant underachieving heros. He was good in constantine, and he was good in the film adaptation of holes, despite not being overweight like in the book.

In transformers he was completely believable as a guy screaming for his life with giant robots fighting around him.

But in kingdom of the crystal skull, he's supposed to be this tough motorcycle guy spouting one liners? I remember thinking to myself that I could honestly beat this guy in a fight. I was ready to throw hands with a fictional character to prove a point.

Brocky70

Magical Mishap

The girl who played Lily Potter in DHII. How many times in the book does it say that Harry has Lily's green eyes...and then they cast a kid with brown eyes??? It annoys me every time I watch it.

FeelsLikeNArbysNight

So Lily and James Potter as adults. Wtf. They died in their 20s, yet they appear to be in their 40s. That has always annoyed the crap out of me. I get it, if Harry is a teen 20 somethings wouldn't be believable, but come on, people would figure it out.

VolcanoBoom88

All Was Well

Giphy

Bonnie Wright as Ginny Weasley. I clicked on this thread with the sole intention of finding this, and posting it if it wasn't here.

I have no doubt that Bonnie Wright can be a decent actress, but she and Dan Radcliffe had zero chemistry whatsoever on the screen. To the point that I wish movie-Harry had ended up with Luna, which was a possibility I had never considered while reading the books.

MossyHarmless

No Thanks Villain

Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. G-ddamn, everyone blames Jessie Eisenberg but he played that character like I would have expected. It's not that he's a bad actor, he shouldn't have been cast as Lex.

Geographically Incorrect

The guy that replaced Daario Naharis on Game of Thrones. The first guy was so exotic looking. He looked like he came from a different part of the seven kingdoms. The second guy was so generic looking. He looked like Jon Snow or Rob Stark. Not the actors fault but it was such a bummer.

Strangest Things

Both Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves in 'Dracula'. Without them that film would've had a real shot at becoming a true horror masterpiece.

Don't know what was up with them in that one btw; they're not usually horrible actors. Winona was fantastic in Stranger Things.

MagnoliaPetal

What's the worst casting decision you've ever seen in film or TV?

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

Giphy

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

Nutella

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

Telekinesis

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

Dogs and Chocolate

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Stars In Their Multitude

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
