Casting can be one of the most important factors when it comes to a movie. If you don’t get the right actor to portray the character, then the whole movie can fall apart. Simply put, casting correctly can make or break a film. Some movies have done this task very well. Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Charlton Heston as Moses, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Magneto. These and many others have just been PERFECT! When we think of those characters now, we see these actors because they are so identifiable. However, there are times when casting gets it wrong, and other times when it gets it really wrong. And finally, there are times where you are just left thinking, “Are they insane? Why did they think that would work?”

Recently, a few movies have released their casting choices for parts that have left people scratching their heads, and some even feeling like they have doomed the movie because of them. The two particular bits of turmoil I have heard as of late are the casting of Channing Tatum as Gambit in the next X-Men movie, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Batman vs Superman Movie. In fact, the Batman vs. Superman movie has a lot of casting choices that have made people a bit nervous about it. That geeky kid from Social Network is playing Lex Luthor? Excuse me? Who the hell is this as Wonder Woman? Lots of people are predicting that this movie is gonna crash and burn, and with it, any chances of a shared DC universe to compare to that of Marvel.

But is this a fair assessment? Because there is a difference between an unconventional actor choice that ends up working and a wrong, so wrong, much wrong, please no! acting choice that destroys all your innocent hopes and dreams. A very thin line lies between these two ends of the spectrum and, sometimes, it can be downright impossible to know where a character/actor will end up until you see the final product. It all comes down to a few key things. What other roles has the actor had, who is directing and producing, who is their supporting cast, and are they connected to anyone in any way in the film? These things can be critical. If you have an actor who has only ever played comedic roles but you pair him with a great supporting cast and director and such, the end result can be surprisingly awesome.
