Nice, they completely Hollywooded Rapp's origin story. Roll Eyes

I was kinda expecting Bruce Willis or Tommy Lee Jones to play Hurley.

My understanding was Willis was first choice but something couldn't be made to work

I like Keaton though

That's pretty much where my satisfaction with the cast ends

I always thought Irene Kennedy was a blonde woman

The actor they chose for Rapp looks more like a hipster than an all American lacrosse player turned assassin

And why the fuck did you need to change the origin?

Not off to a great start, IMO

I'm glad to see Taylor Kitsch in something finally.

Agreed. The casting in this is almost as bad as the casting in Reacher.

The lead looks like the guy in the friend zone who women cry on his shoulder after a lacrosse player dumps them.

A whole lot of bizarre casting choices - but I've been such a big fan of the books, that I'd give the movie a chance to see if it works.

Same here. I'll watch with low expectations to reduce the disappointment.

I don't mind the casting of Rapp. Looks like the kind of guy that could evolve. Certainly not what I pictured when I read the books but my vision of him is . kdifferent from everyone else's here.

Irene is not even close to what I picutered or anyone else I know. I pictured a mild mannered looking brunette.

Keaton will do OK as Hurley I think though I always pictured someone like Ed Harris.

The setup change, removing the Lockerbie bombing was surpising, but I suppose for the movie series they wanted to have a current terror attack.

Overall, I'm excited.

I'll see it opening night since I can now reserve seats at my local theater. I have my concerns but will give it the benefit of the doubt.

I really want this to be good. I'm afraid to get my hopes up, though.

Good point. I'm sure many people have never heard of Lockerbie or Pan Am Airlines.

That was also a quarter century ago. Doing a period piece can be an unneeded complication.
