(Mis)Casting


Essentially a more accessible version of an earlier game thread. This is easier to participate in because all you have to do is come up with a single dubious casting choice for a rebooted movie or tv role proposed by the previous poster.

e.g.
Poster A: Superman?

Poster B: Alan Alda
Next: Voice of Darth Vader?

Poster C: Gilbert Gottfried
Next: Captain Jean Luc Picard?

and so on.

I'll start:
Major 'Hot Lips' Hoolihan?
