    Maybe people can watch Argo & The Town and just cut the guy a break, see how he does before crapping on him.

    Who knows... hopefully he'll surprise us. No one thought Heath Ledger as the Joker was a good idea either, and look how that turned out!

    Praying that this is a publicity stunt of New-Coke-proportions. Otherwise, I think it is a sign of the end times.

    As much as I disagree with the casting, I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. Good luck to him!
