tuesday topics: casting mistakes in films

August 29, 2017

one. ansel elgort as augustus waters in the fault in our stars.
he ruined this movie for me, and it could've been AWESOME.

two. eric bana as henry detamble in the time traveler's wife.
he ruined this movie, too. 

three. tom cruise as jack reacher in jack reacher.

what casting mistakes have you seen in films? share links for your blog posts in the comments.
(i'm having issues with link-ups at present. sorry, folks.)

    1. Oh, here's my list:

  3. You know your projects stand out of the herd. There is something special about them. It seems to me all of them are really brilliant! on camera talent
