    Good: Every single character, leads to bit players, in Casablanca.

    I just can't seem to like an movie Nicholas Cage is in. He just seems to overact in his movies. Not all of his movies, but a lot of them.

    Robert Duvall in Lonesome Dove. I read the book first and thought he was great as Gus.

    Happy to see 60+ people put a like equivalent on this post so I wasn't the only one thinking that.

    The attention to detail in 'Open Range' is one of the things that makes it so great. The near impossibility of simply crossing the street during heavy rains, the fact that women (who weren't working girls) normally would never go into a saloon, even the front of Costner's hat being so much more molded and matted down on the one side than the other because that's the hand he would always use to take it off. I do like westerns, and it's turned into one of my favorites.

    Bad Bad Bad: Noah Wyle in the TV sci-fi Falling Skies. The mild Wyle as the librarian in the "Librarian" movies works to some extent. Cast as a meek professor turned alien fighting resistance leader? Nope, not at all. Just terrible. And the rest of the cast, with maybe Sarah Conner as an exception, should never work as actors again. Ever.

    I never saw the Dark Knight and still refuse to watch it, but Maggie Gyllenhall was cast in another movie (was it a different Batman movie?) where she was supposed to be playing a beautiful woman. In fact, she was introduced in more than one scene to someone else and "beautiful" was used in the introduction as if they were trying to convince the audience that she was indeed beautiful. Sorry, but Maggie Gyllenhall is not the least bit beautiful. She's not unpleasant to look at, but I would by no means describe her as beautiful.

    Jake Lloyd as Anakin Skywalker. SO many failures in that decision.

    It's almost like Jake and Maggie Gyllenhalls parents were casting directors.

    Off topic, but Billie Eilish (who is awful) parents work in the music biz as well. Half these people have connections somehow.

    I would agree with Stewart for the most part, but I thought she fit the mold for Into The Wild very well. Great movie.

    DDL is the best actor of our time. I'll happily pay to watch anything he's in. Christian Bale and Sean Penn are a very close #2 and #3.

    Have to disagree again, one of the few voiceover movies I could get into the charector without thinking about the voice.

    Some of the peeps getting repeated cited as great castings need to get some credit for the roles they agree to take on and act. Some of them continually make GREAT choices. You know they are getting LOTS of offers, some likely not well suited for them.

    I don’t like him generally, but Val Kilmer did a great Doc Holliday.

    Gary Oldman, Tom Hanks and John Malkovich might disagree with you, along with a handful of others, but that's what I could think of on the spur of the moment.
