OK, so someone like me who is a complete media addict really depends upon Hollywood for a lot of my day-to-day recreational dependence. For the most part, they have done a very good job for me, providing the many types of Movies and Television Shows that I love so dearly. They have shown time and time again to have a strong collection of professionals and artists who do such a great job for me and those like me. Unfortunately, as you know, all movies are not created equal, and the same goes for TV shows. They often have things that simply make them crappy, and when that happens the fault also belongs to Hollywood. One of those things that can go wrong with horrible results is the miscasting of actors for those feature films. When that happens it can really be horrible. The following is my list of the 10 worst mistakes in movie casting in recent years. They aren’t necessarily in order, but share their shame rather equally.
#10 – Rosie O’Donnell as Betty Rubble in The Flintstones (1994)
If I was going to put these in order I probably would have made this #1, but mostly this would be because I hate Rosie O’Donnell with every fiber of my being. Putting that aside, I still am appalled at this choice. First off, just look at her! Betty was skinny, and pretty, sweet and cute (for a cartoon), on the other hand Rosie is. . . well. . .not any of those things. . .at all! Ok so Betty’s voice was kind of annoying and so is Rosie’s so there is that, I guess.
#9 – Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane in Superman Returns (2006)
Casting a new Superman reboot, was admittedly a tough job and Bryan did do a decent job casting Brandon Routh as Superman, but then what happened? Bosworth is too young, too pretty, and too. . .well, Kate Bosworth. I know some people had a problem with Margot Kidder as Lane in the first (original) film, but she was way more believable in my opinion.
