Poor Denise gets no love.

Wait a minute - TIPTOES was a real movie? Really?

Amen on TWO BROKE GIRLS. What dreck.

John Cusack was wrong for LOVE & MERCY. (and ruined the movie) But Paul Dano was terrific as the young Brian Wilson.

Thanks for the slide show warning.
By the way, the casting director is not the one who chooses the top-billed actors. That remains the purview of the producer (or the director if he has enough clout).

Glen Campbell and Kim Darby in the original True Grit. Darby was annoying and Campbell had zero acting ability.

Not exactly casting, but......

In the first scene of KISS ME KATE, set in Howard Keel's apartment, there is a portrait of him on the wall playing Hamlet.

Howard Keel as Hamlet! The mind boggles.....

How'd the miss Mickey Rooney as Mr. Yunioshi in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S?
