Tom Cruise as Lestat makes NO sense at all.

Jack Nicholson totally miscast in As Good As It Gets. It had the potential to be a great film, but Nicholson reduced it to Just Another Nicholson Film.

It needed an unknown.

Lestat is blonde, charismatic and impossibly good looking - I think they were testing our ability to suspend disbelief.

My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

He was also supposed to be tall.

Downey as Sherlock Holmes????? I wanted to sue them for Aggravated Literary Molestation. Then I found out that, like much of Windows, it wasn't a fault, it was a feature.

AND...now there's another one. Oh joy. Too much CGI and a cobbled plot again?

Pakar suggested in the other thread that the roles should have been switched. Astute.

He's managed to get the part of Jack Reacher as well, in the Lee Childs books Reacher is six and half feet tall and built like a brick outhouse!

They're making a Reacher book?! Awesome! OUCH on the casting, though.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Trying to think who a good Reacher might be. Maybe John Cena. He's done some acting, and it's not like Reacher does all that much talking.

And Minority Report was intended to be a sequel to Total Recall. Different character, but Arnold to Cruise?
