I just want to express my thanks to all who stopped by and read the interview with Ben about Guardians. The over 500 of you!! I have had this for almost 17 years and it is for fun. Ben is a class act and I would say we are discerning fans. I hope, as I am sure many of you do as well, that this cameo will lead to more exciting projects. We know he is the original Star Lord. I get how Hollywood thinks, I don’t agree but I get it. I watch a lot of British and Australian TV and find it interesting that not every story is changed to have a 20 something lead. I also get that studios want a “bankable” star for films they are investing millions if not hundreds of millions. Emma Watson is a fabulous actress yet Beauty and the Beast would have worked with an unknown or lesser known actress. An actor draws his or her base in but many people react to the idea shown in a trailer or described in a blurb in my opinion. Granted not sure if it was my checkbook I would trust viewers that much but I like to think good acting and good stories sell themselves as much as an actor’s name. I go to James Bond films no matter who plays Bond. I am not going to the New Mummy film because all of Tom Cruise films blend together as a series of stunts and effects and his “don’t worry we’re going to get out of this face” (and he should have never played Jack Reacher despite owning the rights!). Sermon over!
Until Hoax is released ( not sure of the distribution details at this point) in March we can re-watch Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 🙂
