As soon as i saw the title of the list, I immediately thought of Keanu Reeves and no-one else.

I only agree with a few of these. Reeves has been miscast in some roles but definitely not all of them; Hopkins was perfect for the Human Stain (for the record, movie adaptations of Roth`s novels are never good and this one was no exception); and Keira Knightly is too hot to be considered a miscast for any role other than ugly characters.

I disagree with Jude Law in Alfie, Kiera Knightly in Domino, and the Keanu Reeves one.

2 things..

Keira too small?? The real Domino Harvey wasn`t excactly a giant.. I thought she did great in the role..

And how can you not include Tara Reid in Alone in the Dark?? Makes Denise Richards looks like a mensa member!

I thought the Laura Bush one was crazy!
Number 5 seemed a little racist. For a Chinese she was really pale. And that`s saying something. You could tell she was white. She looked like my old French teacher. Number three was hilarious! But come on, he looked like he had a tan. That seemed a little racist, him a black man. But then again, the movie White Chicks..lol. Oh wells, that was a comedy!
But I don`t see anything wrong with Jessica playing that role. Even though she is too young, her hair is too long...her legs..her legs are too sexy and long...those eyes....those wonderfully beautifully eyes...hmmm...perfected lips...

Look at the cartoon of that though. Lol, they like drawing HUGE honkers on cartoon women.

20 with Rosie O`Donnell made me dumb:
Why ugly fat man woman take role of hot cartoon woman in cartoon? Ugly woman no brushy teeth and ugly. Still photo with ugly woman make me throw up breakfast. Me have pancakes and carrot. Ugly nasty fat woman destroy. Me find mean ugly lesbo fat manwoman and destroy.

10- Pharoah? Um no. He was just a Slave. And he was awesome.
9- Didn`t see the movie...
8- As much as I love Connery...Yeah, too scottish to play a spaniard.
7- Eh, she does definitely LOOK a bit dumb.
6- Oh yeah.
5- Yep
4- OMG YEAH. didn`t even bother with an accent. Carry Elwes was better in Men in Tights.
3- HAHA yeah...too white.
2- OMG Seriously? Someone thought that was a godo idea? LOL
1- Matrix, Bill and Ted, A Scanner Darkly, Point Break, Speed...all good. But yeah, All the movies they listed were pretty bad choices. He seemed really out of place in Dracula. And Constantine...OMG. Someone here thought he was perfect for that role? Are you Kidding? John constantine was MODELED AFTER STING. The movie was NOTHING like the comics.

20- Whole movie was horrible. But at the time, Rosie was ok.
19- Bowie rules. I`ve seen worse choices for Pilate.
18- Yep, too young, too sexy, too girly.
17-Remaking Alfie was a bad idea in the first place. But I can`t think of anyone other than Jude who could have done it.
16- Totally agree.
15-Wait...your gonna complain about Ted Danson but not Forrest Gump or Matt Damon?
14- Yep, too old, not gay enough.
13- OMG YEAH. All the actors, except for Spacey, TOOO friggin Young. Whole movie sucked.
12- Orlando can be rough. He did a decent job in a BORING movie.
11- Yeeeeaaah...let`s stop remaking perfect classics.

Yul Brynner as the King of Siam and Hayden Christiansen as Anakin Skywalker should have been on there.

And I actually think Keanu Reeves is underrated.

Well that was crap. From the layout of the list, the """""""""HUMOR"""""""""" of the list, and the decisions of the list, I would say that the list was made by a twelve year old.

I know that Keanu sucked as Johnathan Harker in Dracula, but I love that movie so much.
Might have something to do with the fact that Gary Oldman was gorgeous in the movie.

Oh come on...

Whilst Keanu might have sucked in some roles (looks at Dracula) He rocked in Bill and Ted, he rocked in The Matrix, he rocked in Constantine, he rocked in Devils Advocate, he rocked in Speed, He TOTALLY rocked in Point Break and was quite good in The Lakehouse.

I guess it`s a matter of taste...but yes..he was hideously miscast in some movies!

I actually liked Domino with Keira Knightley. She`s thin, but she still kicked ass and looked the bad-girl part. She was just really feminine too.

Whatever I dont mind that David Bowie was Pontius Pilate. It never struck me as weird or off. But then again I`m biased cause I practically worship David Bowie.

What about that guy the cast to play 47 in Hitman? He was such a wimp for that role, I think that should have been number one.

I also disagree with number eleven. Vince Vaughn is one of the creepiest guys ever and I think he was great in Psycho.

Poor Keanu! He`s like a hopeless case. I kinda liked him in The Replacements. lol They totally got Colin Farrell right. His blonde hair in Alexander caused me to turn it off after 10 mins. It was so hideous! So was Alba`s hair. And she so cool. But who believed her blue contacts?
