Nathan Fillion was in pre-school when Star Wars was being filmed, dude. 

As for the Harrison Ford story, it's interesting but it's wrong.  It is certainly true that Tom Selleck was up for the role.  Ford was not working as a carpenter at the studio at the time, though.  You're mixing your stories up Ken.  Ford was cast as Han Solo because he was doing some carpentry at the studio during pre-production.

I disagree that Keanu Reeves was a better choice for The Matrix than Will Smith would have been.

"Screw Hugh Jackman. Danzig should've been Wolverine. And Gambit? Fuckin' Josh Holloway."

Creamygnome: Josh Halloway was Gambit?...When? Unless you meant Taylor Kitsch, who looks an awful lot like him, and did in fact play Gambit in X-men Origins Wolverine.

Its pointless to argue will smith as neo.  Reason being:  There will likely be a remake soon,  and will smith will likely get the role:)

redhairs99:  Are you sure about the Wachowski brothers not directing "V for Vendetta"?  I realize James McTeigue is officially listed as the Director but I always had the impression that the brothers were the ones pulling the strings and laying their hands all over the production and editing of the film -- essentially, the same situation Richard Marquand found himself in when he "directed" Return of the Jedi.

That said, I may be overstating just how extensive the brothers were involved on V's direction. ^_^;;

raithen, I don't really recall reading up on or seeing much of the behind-the-scenes for V For Vendetta.  McTeigue is listed as the director, so that's what I was going by.  I was actually surprised when I saw the film that it was decent and watchable.  The one thing in my mind that I didn't care for was the "bullet-time" knives at the end.  That was lame and had the Wakky-Bros' name all over it.

Danzig as Wolverine?  That's hilarious.  I remember hearing for years that he wanted the part.  While he was short and stocky like Logan and was enthusiastic about a shot at the role, that's all he had going for him in the part.  I never saw any evidence that the guy had any acting ability.  Saying Danzig was perfect for Wolverine is like saying Megan Fox is perfect for Wonder Woman.  She's beautiful and statuesque with long dark hair, so Fox must be perfect for the part, right?  I don't think so.  He may very well have been great in the role, but I've never seen any proof of it.
