Default Re: The Official Cast Jimmy Olsen Thread

First off, thanks for posting guys, it was getting lonely in here

yeah i don't doubt it, i just don't see much Jimmy in the guy. Like i've said in other threads i think the key to good casting is figuring out the character first, personality/attitude and then and only then do you move to the casting stage.

Incidently that's why i think a lot of the casting suggestions for Lois are just wrong, people are basing it all on looks but not on personality/character. I agree with you about Rashida Jones for lois lane, perfect casting there.

Him being geeky is fine but that doesn't mean he has to be incapable. He should in a way be the comic relief but not because of his own characteristics but more in his actions.
I totally agree with you. I just watched all 4 films over the last month and i never really like perry or jimmy. They didn't do a whole lot and their interaction with clark and lois was spotty at best. L & C did the best job with the DP staff hands down. Really hoping they will take a look at it and really wrap their brains around how to portray these characters in the new film so that we actually enjoy seeing them interact.

I agree, geeky jimmy could be cool, but not lame.
