Our glorious host Boxer has chosen "worst casting" as this weeks theme. I really like MCW except that I can seldom, if ever find the appropriate clip. As soon as I saw this week's theme I immediately went to "anything that has starred Keanu Reeves except Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure". Then I said "no, definate blog jinx." So then I went back in my mental archives. Back to the days when I went to the movies every week. Not like now. Now, I pull up to the "cineplex", look at the marquee, get out of my truck and walk to the back where I open up my endgate and then slam it on my hand. It's less painful than watching almost any of the crap that Hollywood is putting out. Anyway, I remember watching Darkman with Liam Neeson and Larry Drake. You may remember Drake playing
I then went back to Reeves. A close second was the kid who played Annikan Skywalker in Star Wars Episode 1: Two Hours of your life you won't get back. Then I thought, "it's not his fault that Lucas is a cheap, fat bastard who didn't want to pay money for some real talent" and left the kid alone. Anyway, here's a random Keanu Reeves clip. The thing about this clip is that the editing was excellent. You can't even see the strings.
This is a really great scene because Reeves doesn't have any dialogue until the end. Happy MCW.
