    What do you feel is the worst bit of casting in the history of motion pictures?

    If you want to list your Top 3 or so....feel free.

    Haven't really thought about it before, but the one that immediately leaps to mind is Joey Lauren Adams as a philosophy professor in the absolutely terrible Harvard Man.

    Kevin Costner as Robin Hood?

    Yes, and I'm King Richard the Lionheart.


    Another one that seriously annoys me is Bill Pullman as the President in that crap-fest ID4. Yeah, right.

    No (deserved) Sofia Coppola/Godfather III cracks yet?

    Jake Lloyd in The Phantom Menace, a film I otherwise like. Hideously unnatural and lacking in youthful charm.

    Willard Scott in Schindler's List

    And don't mind Rain... he just recently bought some contaminated crack. [​IMG] (Don't know about Clooney as I couldn't stomache the film, but the other two are ideal, IMO)
