SaraK, you did it! They're coming to Chicago!

 

For the people who have been to live shows, how do they notify people when tickets go on sale? I want to make sure I get one.

Kit Harrington? Paul, really? Pretty, pretty but so dumb Kit Harrington to play the LEGEND Chrisopher Lee? Paul, what are you smoking? Harrington WISHES he had one tenth of Lee's talent and charisma. I'm sorry but no, no, no.. Cast Harrington and it would end up on the show.

I may be just on a Dr Who hit but I could go with Peter Capaldi. Right height and oozing charisma

I think it's awesome they are making very hard to find movies easier to see with vimeo. I hope that continues.

Hmm. I don't particularly like following things on Facebook and I don't use Twitter. But I guess I can make an exception to try and get tickets.

Just to add on to the "No on Kit" movement... THE DUDE IS TOO SHORT

 

Hot? Yes absolutely. Tall? He's my height. 5'8'' is not the presence you need to capture the 6'5'' Christopher Lee.

Trying to think of tall, skinny, deep-voiced Brits ...

 

Cumberbatch? Redmayne? Hiddleston?

I really couldn't figure out how you knew this until I realized I must have put my birthday in when I created an account here.

Wooo Chicago! I hope everyone who wants to go can get a ticket. I wish I could go and then spend the rest of the night stuffing myself with Portillo's.

 

I used to confuse Freejack and New Jack City, so I never watched either of them out of an irrational aversion to Emilio Estevez. Freejack wasn't as bad as I was expecting.

Casting the young Christopher Lee is hard because there are no current 20 something actors I can think of with such gravitas in their voice. However, if I were the producer I might push for Nicholas Hoult. He's fairly tall, so the height and build are pretty good. He's also British. However, I think if you are going to focus on the war aspect, Hoult could start of as fresh faced and youthful and by the end transform into someone who carries the weight of war on them and be convincing throughout.

*Face Palm* That's just so wrong. Not a fan of the Cumberbatch but for looks/build a pretty good call

Guy's you are missing the obvious choice for young Christopher Lee. Nicholas Cage.

Let's see:

Academy Award Winner

6 foot (so tallish)

Can play British (Season of the Witch)

And sure he's in his 50's but add some of those CGI effects to make him look like he did in Vampire's Kiss and you're good to go.

Robert Pattinson

 

I know but if you look at his post Twilight work (Rover, Good Time, Cosmopolis), he's working to shed that image. Maybe in 5-10 years the public will recognize him as the legitimately good actor he is.

 

Let's remember Christopher Lee didn't start getting famous until his mid 30s in the Hammer films. So, Pattinson has time to age into being respected actor formerly best known for playing vampires.

I was just having this discussion the other day. I don’t think the issue with RPats and KStew has ever been about their acting so much as Twilight itself. If you look at their acting outside of that franchise, it’s clear what they’re both capable of. I think any fault in their acting in the Twilight films is on the directors and should not be a statement on their abilities. They are only doing what they’re being told to do - and in that regard - they do an admirable job.

I agree. But Christopher Lee was still good in Howling 2. So, is bad writing, directing, editing Pattinson's and Stewart's fault?

 

Also, let me throw out Hugh Laurie as a possibility.

No, it’s not. We seem to be saying the same thing.

I think I worded it badly.

 

Even in bad movies like Howling 2, Christopher Lee is still impressive. But in bad movies like Twilight, Pattinson and Stewart are bad. Lee was still professional even in crap he hated. Can we say the same for both Stewart and Pattinson? So, I think some of the blame for their performances in Twilight is on them. We can't say it's all the writers and directors.
