Top Ten Worst Movie Casting Choices

The Top Ten

1 Sofia Coppola - Mary Corleone Sofia Carmina Coppola is an American screenwriter, director, producer, and former actress. She is the daughter of director, producer, and screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola, and made her film debut as an infant in her father's acclaimed crime drama film, The Godfather.
2 Rosie O'Donnell - Betty Rubble

Betty was supposed to be cute on the show, O'Donnell though she can perfect the character's laugh, is not the right choice for the part mostly because of her weight. - Dancedom

3 Shelley Duvall - Wendy Torrance Shelley Alexis Duvall is an American former actress, producer, writer and singer. Over the duration of her career, Duvall garnered critical acclaim for her portrayals of various eccentric characters. Duvall began her career appearing in various Robert Altman films in the 1970s.

Part of that bad relationship I can understand, If I was Kubrick I'd probably be pretty frustrated with her at a certain point too, but look at it from Duvall's perspective, or mostly anyone who starred in 1 of Kubricks movies, you need to have the biggest amount of patience imaginable, because if it means doing it perfectly, he will literally shoot a scene over 100 times, and for someone that pretty impatient like me, I can understand why Duvall and probably some of the other cast members would get pretty agitated after a while

Even Stanly Kubrick didn't like working with her

4 Keanu Reeves - Jonathan Harker Keanu Charles Reeves (born September 2, 1964) is a Canadian actor, director, producer, and musician. He gained fame for his starring role performances in several blockbuster films, including comedies from the Bill and Ted franchise.
5 Hayden Christensen - Anakin Skywalker Hayden Christensen is a Canadian-American actor and producer. He began his career on Canadian television at the age of 13, then diversified into American television in the late 1990s. more.

Seriously, would you ever have guessed that the great and powerful Darth Vader was once this whiny little crybaby?

Movie isn't filmed yet

Why the hell is he here? He was great.

8 John Wayne - Genghis Khan
9 Topher Grace - Venom

I'm glad they didn't cast him for the 2018 movie Venom like they did in Spiderman 3. For a character as tough, brawny and totally badass as Venom, they could have done a lot better than Topher Grace. Tom Hardy was definitely a wiser decision and pulls off the role pretty well. Topher Grace is NOT fit for the role of Eddie Brock/Venom. That was very disappointing.

He had the right voice and haircut, but Eddie is supposed to be huge and muscular while topher was just a thin small guy (no offense).

10 George Clooney - Batman George Timothy Clooney is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has received three Golden Globe Awards for his work as an actor and two Academy Awards, one for acting and the other for producing.

This was Perfect casting the movie was disappointing but this was great casting

18 Michael B. Jordan - Human Torch
19 Jackie Earl Haley - Freddy Krueger
