I remember someone (I think @OHMSS69
suggesting this a while back and all the talk about The Rock (who I really like) on the Bond 24 production thread reminded me of it so I thought I'd start it. This can be anyone. Actors, singers, footballers, comedians, whatever. Any famous person who you're a fan of that others seem to dislike.
Main one for me is Mark Wahlberg. I think he's great. He's a good actor who can do loads of different genres (action, drama and he's great at comedy), he's very likeable and he seems like a good bloke who's regretful of mistakes he made in the past. And yet I've read a lot of comments bashing him.
He was meant to be playing the main character in the Uncharted movie and everyone was complaining, saying he's a crappy choice. Why? I actually think he's perfect. Like I said, he does comedy well, he does action well, and he's got that sort of likeable everyman vibe that you need to play Nathan Drake.
And while his acting career didn't get off to a brilliant start he's made some great films over the years. Shooter, Ted, The Other Guys, etc.
Is it because of his Marky Mark days? Come on guys. Yeah he was crap but that was a long time ago. Is it because of Max Payne? Sure he was wrong for the part but the whole film was pretty bad and he did his best with a weak script.
