Movies or shows where MOST of the actors seem miscast

Walk on the Wild Side - Capucine, Laurence Harvey, and Anne Baxter were so wrong for their roles. La Stanwyck was the only one who nailed it.

They were all Charlie Feldman's clients. He was one of the producers on Walk on the Wild Side.

"Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets".

Which was a pity, it really had the potential to be a way cool movie.

I loved the set, with the rooms open to the courtyard.

Tom Hanks in [italic]Bonfire of the Vanities[/italic] - that was Not an everyman role.

That godawful Robert Altman Buffalo Bill with Geraldine Chaplin as Annie Oakley!

None of the leads in BONFIRE was well-cast, especially Bruce Willis who plays a character that was British in the original book (and I think based in part on Christopher Hitchens).

William Hurt should have played Hanks role.

That whole movie was a shit-show.

House of the Spirits - bunch of white people playing Latinos

by Anonymousreply 1112/04/2017

^ No one has more Latin flair than Meryl Streep and Winona Ryder!

August: Osage County (not counting Margo Martindale and Chris Cooper)

by Anonymousreply 1412/04/2017

r14, that was admittedly a good choice. Benedict Cumberbatch as white trash?!

One Day at a Time, the 70s version

by Anonymousreply 1612/04/2017

"Starship Troopers" - Denise Richards, Patrick Muldoon, Casper Van Dien and others as scientists (?)

by Anonymousreply 1712/04/2017

I so wish they had done August with Streep and Laura Linney and Friedkin. Oh well, maybe it will be remade in the future.

That Millie girl is super annoying.

Also miscast: Moment by Moment with John Travolta and Lilly Tomlin

Sommersby - Foster and Gere

Emma Stone as Asian

Bradley Cooper as straight

Rent, the film version.

No one could have made MOMENT BY MOMENT anything other than a laugh-fest.

Any version of The Great Gatsby

I agree with many of these.

I did love Stanwyck in WOTWS, and thought Jane Fonda was sexy and fun to watch. She's often so stiff in many of her early films.

by Anonymousreply 2312/06/2017

I love Stanwyck saying to Jane 'You talk too much.'

Stanwyck had no idea.

Carnage with Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, John C Reilly, and Cristoph Waltz directed by child rapist (but that's another thread) Roman Polanski. The whole thing seemed off with the casting. And Jodie, bless her, was cringe worthy towards the end. Kate Winslet seemed out of her depth playing drunk. The men came off better but neither actor felt like a match for the actress to whom they were paired.

The vomiting bit took me by surprise (and put me off my cheesecake). How did they do that onstage?

Weird movie. Weird cast.

by Anonymousreply 2512/06/2017

Why Foster is thought to be such a great actress leaves me cold. I find her wooden and inexpressive. She didn't deserve either of her Oscars.
