Sounds like a personal problem.


I actually think the compromise resulted in a better choice for the role in my opinion.

Hilary Swank would not have been a good choice for the role like she’s been in her last few roles. Michelle Williams is way too young for the role. Rachel Weisz is not only the right age but has the acting chops to pull it off.

how stunning Rachel is!for me she’s one of the most beautiful women in hollywood!
i think she will be great in that role because she is a good actress and it’s nice to see her in something less expected..we’ll see..

Mila Kunis and James franco in a movie together. I can’t wait they were great in The date night.


No worries, your comment was not offensive in the slightest. The person is just a troll.

I love Rachel Weisz…..
And I agree,… these 3 actors are underrated

I love that rachel Is considering this role, I will be something completely different from what her audience is used to seeing. Kunis, I love, she is beautiful (as well as Weisz) underrated, and is showing she has range and isnt just a pretty face.
Franco I’ve always liked him, he is a great actor, and has this “I dont give a f*** about what people say” attitude, which I love!.
Though I had my doubt about him playing the wizard, he was never in my mind to play this role. But I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, becasue I also thought the same thing when Pineapple came out I thought he could not do comedy, but he proved me wrong.!…So hopefully he proves me wrong again!.

All Jews… meh
