Quote by Red
I find I'm so excited that I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel. A free man at a start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

Isn't this a bit like names - everyone's names suit them and you couldn't imagine calling them anything else, but only because it's their name?
Might be better to say who wasn't suited for a role, and who would've been better?

I'm so glad they didn't pick Tom Cruise for that role. He is fine for stuff like mission impossible, but I just couldn't picture him as Tony Stark.

Agreed. Though they said that about him when he was cast in Interview with a Vampire and that turned out well. Guess we'll never know...

Show: The Highlander
Character: Duncan MacLeod
Actor: Adrian Paul - just much better than Christopher Lambert (and also in contrast to his role as Dante in Arrow which was meh)

Show: NCIS
Character: Leroy Jethro Gibbs
Actor: Mark Harmon

And also as Akasha has said, Eric Northman, Elijah Mikaelson and Alan Shore :thumbsup: (and Shatner as Danny Krane).

Mark Wahlberg as Bob Lee Swagger in Shooter (as opposed to Ryan Phillippe in the series).

I also agree with the sentiments on Tony Stark and Cpt. Jack Sparrow.

Stallone is John Rambo, not Rocky and Sophie Turner will always be Sansa Stark (not Jean Grey).

"Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible ****... me."

"Listen, you ****ing fringe, if I throw a dog a bone, I don't want to know if it tastes good or not. You stop me again whilst I'm walking, and I'll cut your ****ing Jacobs off."

"Well, where'd you lose him? He ain't a set of ****ing car keys, is he? And it ain't as if he's incon-****ing-spicuous now, is it?"
