I disagree. I'm not going to go off saying he's a pretty man or anything, but suffice it to say, I think he looks like Tony, I think he looks as good as Tony, y'know, it's not like we're talking about Paul Giamatti or something here.

Y'know, honestly, the same thing happened to me. Up until this point, I really had no clue how good (or bad) this movie would be - and I was sorta...disinterested due to that. This casting obviously doesn't give us too
much more of a hint about the quality of the movie, but it's certainly a step in the right direction, IMO.
