Recast any movie with any actor:
I’m going to prematurely judge the long awaited Gambit movie and say that Gambit should be recast to anyone that isn’t Channing Tatum. I know, I know, I’m a jerk. But honestly I just can’t see it. He’s too “pretty” and plain. Gambit is supposed to have some roughness around the edges. I wouldn’t mind giving Norman Reedus a shot at it. I think he can pull off a sexy cajun bad boy who’s just a little bit dangerous. But last time I checked Hollywood wasn’t asking me. Prove me wrong Channing Tatum. I dare you.

If you could have a movie re-made tomorrow exactly the way you wanted it to be made what movie would that be and why?
I’d remake Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite books and I was super excited when I heard that Burton would be putting his own spin on the sotry. Unfortunately, I think he lost his way along the CGI trail and got bogged down by the fakery of computer generated landscape and characters. I think it could benefit from a more restrained approach to combining both CGI and practical effects.
Your favorite movie line:
“Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!” -Ghostbusters
Who would you want to have as an onscreen kiss? Bruce Campbell
What movie do you wish you could erase from your memory because it was terrible? Rob Zombie’s remakes of Halloween and Halloween 2.
What movie do you wish you could re-watch as if it was the first time you had ever seen it? The Evil Dead Trilogy
What is your go to theater seat? Always the very top row middle seat.
What actor from the TV sphere of acting needs to transition to the silver screen?
Michael C. Hall. I think he’s a great actor with a lot of range. As a huge fan of Six Feet Under, I was pretty unsure that I was going to be able to set aside his David Fisher character and convince me that he was now Dexter Morgan, the super smart, one step ahead of the game, likeable serial killer. His ability to perform a completly different kind of character after spending 5 years playing one of my favorite TV characters of all time was really impressive.
What movie are you most excited to see? Right at this moment, I’m most looking forward to the Independence Day sequel and The Purge: Election Year
What movies do you avoid at the theater?
I don’t really have a specific type of movie that I avoid at the theater. Wait no, I do. Anything that seems like it might be another “Twilight” situation, I will avoid until enough evidence has been presented that this isn’t the case.
Do you have a movie genre that you secretly or not so secretly love even though everyone you know hates it?
It’s not really a secret, but I know that foreign films bother a lot of people because they have to deal with reading subtitles. That’s never really been something that bothers me.
Favorite Curse Word:
“Shiteatingsonofabitch!” Kudos if you know what film that’s from
Least favorite word:
If the pearly gates exist what would you like god to say as he lets you in:
I’d just want him to play the theme from Terminator 2, specifically the part that plays as Arnold lowers himself into the molten pit while giving the Conner’s a thumbs up. *tear*
