Here is my random ramble for the day lamenting my unfulfilled desire to have a good actor AND a good script. I suppose it’s fitting to be depressing on the anniversary of his death.
One of the things that makes me upset about stupid Elizabeth I films/series is, besides it being a waste of time and money, it is a waste of potential great actors.
Sometimes casting can surprise me. I didn’t know a thing about Tom Hardy before watching TVQ and I looked at the stills of the film and thought he’d be terrible because he didn’t look a thing like Robert (with the exception of his eyes). I hadn’t seen him in anything before, but everyone was raving over him.
So I thought, “well, let’s give this a try.” He was on screen for, maybe, ten seconds and I thought he was the most amazing thing ever. My first reaction was so wrong. So very very wrong. He was fantastic.
I learned not to judge an actor based on what they look like alone when it comes to playing a historical figure. I want someone who plays Robert to absolutely slay me. It could be the person I least expected. They could come out of nowhere. I’m willing to eat my judgmental, knee-jerk reaction words. I’d LOVE to be pleasantly surprised. You don’t even know how much I’d love to be pleasantly surprised.
As much as I love some of the actors that have played Robert, I’m still waiting for that magical moment when the right actor and the right script (like, one that shows him young and old and includes his family and doesn’t make him sketchy or in love with MQOS or only after Elizabeth’s crown…you know, the basics) come together.
And, this may sound completely stupid and pathetic, but I’m scared that the right actor will be wasted on a bad script and we’ll never know what could have been.
For example, Charlie Carrick looks like Robert, but the script was so terrible that I’ll never really know how good of a Robert he could have been. Was he banned from smiling? Robert could be overly dramatic, but he was charming as well. Ffs. That script was awful.
I googled Joe Alywn’s height and it said he was 6ft tall. I can work with that. (I’m on this weird kick where I insist that the actor playing Robert must be tall - Tom Hardy is the only exception). Hair dye exists. I haven’t seen him in anything, but he’s supposed to be very good. The thing is that I’m fairly certain this script will be terrible so, again, a waste of potential potential (if you know what I mean).
I want an actor to metaphorically punch me in the face with their awesomeness, but I’d like them to punch me in the face with a good script as well. I’m just used to being disappointed so it’s hard for me to get excited or hopeful about anything. I’m prepared for all of these new Elizabethan productions to be terrible because then it might hurt less.
I wish I didn’t care so much about someone who died centuries ago, but I do. You can’t fight the truth, can you?
Today was the Dengeki Spring Festival 2014! Many people like me were looking forward to possible SAOII news because there was going to be SAOII stage during that event. So we got a new key visual for SAOII featuring Shino (in real life) and Sinon (in game)! Look at how precious Shino and how cool Sinon is!!!
Once again, it is confirmed that SAOII will air in Summer 2014 (July). The TV anime series will be on the following broadcasting stations in Japan: TOKYO MX – チバテレ – tvk – テレ玉 – とちぎテレビ – 群馬テレビ – MBS – テレビ愛知 – テレビ北海道 – TVQ九州放送 – BS11.
So far, they only revealed that volume 5 & 6 (Phantom Bullet arc) of the original light novels by Kawahara Reki will be adapted!
160606 Jackson Answering Online Fan Questions for Mango TV
Q: Wang Jia Er when will your self-produced songs be released?
J: This.. will probably have to wait until JYPE authorizes it before it can be released right? Right.
Q: Wang Jia Er, your self-produced song sounds really good. What was your inspiration for creating it?
J: This self-produced song was (created)… approximately six months ago. Actually, I never really learned how to produce. Never learned how to create. But I really like listening to hip-hop, really like listening to just uh… Trap songs. I was very curious. So when I was young I started slowly making my own music on the computer by myself.
Q: Gaga why did you dye your hair black this time? What hair colour do you like?
J: I’ve considered um… the colour grey-blue. Because in Korea I participated in a variety show called 진짜 사나이. Real Men. Real Men. To go to the army you have to have your cut really short and dyed black. So I dyed and cut it.
Q: Does Jia Er want to act in movies? What kind of role would you like to challenge?
J: I feel… I really want to to act in movies. Since I was young I wanted to - if I were to act in movies - I wanted to play a character like Spiderman. If there’s anyone who wants to do a Barbecue-man (He Jiong’s superhero name from the Crime Scene episode Jackson guested on) movie, you can ask me to play the role. The Chinese version. China’s first Barbecue-man. If there are any friends who want me to act, you can call our JYPE’s phone number. Please call me!
Q: If the female leads were Wang Ou jie (Black Widow from Crime Scene) or Gui Gui (Detective from Crime Scene), who would you want to partner with?
J: I want to partner with both of them! With Ou jie, we’ll go assassinate other people - just bang bang bang bang bang! That kind of, that kind of, Action! Action movie. With Gui Gui jie, it’ll probably be… we’ll be a family! Or something. Uh… uh… just a family comedy, do you know (what I mean)? That kind.
Q: What was your first impression of He gege?
J: My first impression seemed to be.. just from the beginning when I saw gege - just he really took care of me a lot. It was a familiar/cordial feeling. Is it called love at first sight?
Q: If you were the murderer (referring to Crime Scene), would you have been able to last until the end? He Teacher would probably be able to see through you with one look right.
J: I feel if I were to do it, He gege would be able to tell with one look! That’s how I feel.
I heard from actor who acted with TVXQ Yunho. Yunho is really enthusiastic in acting. historical play/period drama type is uneasy and along with summer, so filming spot is very dreadful. It seems like there are many hardships. I think it will work well . Yunho, Fighting!
