Starring John Wayne as Genghis Khan: Hollywood's All-Time Worst Casting Blunders

3.44  ·  Rating Details  ·  9 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
Just what were they thinking when they cast John Wayne as Genghis Khan? Or Sharon Stone as a frigid housewife? Or Frank Sinatra as a vengeful cowboy? Each of the entries in this fun book gleefully dissects the mismatch of performer and role, and delves into the film's production, examining the screwy thinking that led to the ill-fated pick in the first place. Photos.

Some of them. New ones happen every year. And they miss some of the classics: Paul Newman as the least convincing Mexican bandit ever([link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058437/]. They blame some on the studio system but worse ones happen without: Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise as brothers, for example [link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095953/].

Mr. Bona is a critic. A harsh mean critic. I disagree with his analysis of the movies I have seen, so I have no doubt that the other movies were not nearly as TERRIBLE as he makes out. I stopped reading after he slammed Matthew Broderick's portrayal of Philipe the Mouse in LadyHawke -- maybe my favorite movie of all time.

Stupid critcs.
