If Fallout 4 was a Movie

Now I did a little digging and I had some recommendation. This is my personal opinion after all of that, so if you think of someone that you think would be better let me know! I tried really hard on this so be nice please. Here we go:

1. Emily Beecham as Cait - Beecham (28 Days Later) is an English-American actress from Manchester, England who has Irish heritage. I think it’s important to keep heritage similar at the least. Her eye color doesn’t match though ):

2. Eli Roth as Paladin Danse - Roth (Inglourious Basterds) has played tough guys before so he could kick ass as Danse. Little thin in the face but he’s got the “look.” Believe me when I saw it was hard to find a look alike for Danse. I was kinda feelin’ Ben Affleck too but he don’t got them eyebrows.

3. Anne Hathaway/Marion Cotillard as Curie - Personally I think Hathaway (Princess Diaries/Les Miserables/etc) looks more like Curie (except eye color) but Cotillard (Inception) might be the better bet seeing as she is French and her eye color matches.

4. Damian Lewis/Alan Tudyk as Deacon - Lewis (Band of Brothers) wins the look-alike contest HANDS DOWN. However, I recommend Tudyk (Firefly) because he is an American actor and he is known for his humor which is Deacon’s most distinctive quality.

5. Danny Shorago as Hancock - Sorry I went lazy with this one. Shorago (ACTUAL voice actor of Hancock) is so unique and crazy, I literally cannot imagine anyone else playing him. He is in a comedy group but has never professionally acted (to the best of my knowledge).

6. Krysten Ritter as Piper - Ritter (Breaking Bad/Jessica Jones) is the singularly best person I can think of for this role. She has a wide acting range and vocal ability, she could be an awesome Piper.

7. Lance Gross/Frank Ocean as X6-88 - UGH I had such a hard time choosing and I am still stuck between them. Gross (Tyler Perry…) and Ocean (singer/songwriter) are both 6′0 so that didn’t help make it easier. Gross has more of the body but Ocean has more of that pouty face.

8. Orlando Bloom as MacCready - Sorry after I saw tumblr user robert-joseph-macready my mind was stuck on him; LOOK AT THE PERFECT RESEMBLANCE! Bloom (Pirates of the Carriblean/LOTR) has that similiar boo-boo face even though his eyes don’t match. Oh well. Ppl will still drool.

9. John Boyega/Brandon T. Jackson as Preston Garvey - Boyega (Star Wars VII) is a new and young actor so might not be the best choice (but looks alike), whereas BTJ (Percy Jackson) has a similar likeness overall.

10. Tommy Lee Jones as Nick Valentine - I almost co-starred him with Sean Bean but we all know how that would’ve turned out. Jones (MIB, Batman Forever, etc) is famous for his role of being a snarky yet serious old dude that’s a bad ass. Plus it’ll be mostly CGI anyway.

Fallout Faceclaim Time, The Sequel!

Hello again! I have been scouring the internet for face while working with @imperfectkreis do de-gringoize Fallout 4. And while I have some ideas for some of the main characters, I’ve been kind of out of it due to personal things. But there will be a time for those, because I had a thought today, for a relatively minor character.

Magnolia here is an awesome character, for as little as she is used by the game (which happens a lot with Bethesda). She’s a damn good singer, has a keen eye for what someone is good at (and with), and has the marvelous ability to make intrepid reporters get a bit bothered. As bonus points, she’s voiced by Lynda “Wonder Woman” Carter, both in conversation and in songs.

So, Lynda Carter gives her an older, more mature sounding voice, as well as someone who can carry a pretty sultry tune all her own. What’s funniest is that this took less time to figure out than MacCready.

Ming-Na Wen, current Agent of Shield, former voice of Mulan in the Disney film of the same name, and 52 years old.

Mature woman? Check.

Lovely and distinctly kickass? Check.

Can sing? Well, someone else may have sang for Mulan, but there seems to be good support for her own singing ability.

Plus? She looks damn gorgeous in red.

“Well let me finish, Dimitri. Let me finish, Dimitri. Well listen, how do you think I feel about it? Can you imagine how I feel about it, Dimitri? Why do you think I’m calling you? Just to say hello? Of course I like to speak to you! Of course I like to say hello!”

Peter Sellers as President of the USA in Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964, dir. Stanley Kubrick)

If you’re into Falloutverse, please love yourself and watch this movie. If you’re not, it’s still one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.

Thoughts on the spell

In thinking about it, the spell cast at the end of last season did not do what it was intended to do.  The spell that Sam was hellbent in casting, the one that Dean repeatedly and clearly said was a bad idea, did nothing but make the situation worse.  The fallout from attempting to cast it:   Bobby in trouble in heaven, Metatron on the loose,  Charlie’s death,and Death’s death (although we could argue about whether he is dead or not)   The consequences of casting it:  An innocent man was murdered to cast it, The Darkness freed, Castiel and Crowley having to deal with a spell, Rowena free with the Book of the Damned and the ability to read it, and now Sam in the cage.

The worst of it though, is that the mark, through Amara, now has more pull over Dean than it ever had.  If it was meant to free Dean of the mark, the spell completely backfired.  Dean may no longer have a physical scar on his arm, but he is in more trouble now than he has ever been.  Amara has control over Dean. She can transport him wherever she wants and make him do things he would not do of his own volition.  She is using him for her own ends and at the moment it seems he doesn’t have much choice in the matter.

Imagine on Bones’ first mission in space, in the first couple of weeks, he’s had a long day and he decides to treat himself to a sweet tea, so he orders one from the replicator and the replicator gives him an error message along the lines of ‘sweet tea unavailable, would you an iced tea with sugar?’ and Bones just loses it like “THAT’S NOT HOW IT FUCKIN’ WORKS.” After yelling at the replicator for several minutes, he goes to engineering to file a complaint, where he spends a solid hour angrily explaining in great detail the complexities of sweet tea to the poor ensign he talked to who didn’t understand why iced tea with sugar wasn’t an acceptable substitute. 

@imthedoctorbasicallyfun, aside from this being brilliant, whiCH IT IS, this is sure to start some Tea Discourse ™ and I cannot wait to watch this fallout.
