Default Re: The Official Jimmy Olsen Casting & Discussion Thread

Jimmy is a hard one to cast because in the end, it's a meaningful but also a thankless role. No disrespect towards the character but you can't just hired dudes like Joseph Gordon Levitt, Anton Yelchin, Michael Cera or even Jaimie Bell because it would be a waste of talent. Especially for Leviitt, who is too big for a role like this. Hell, he would be a great hero on his own one day.

I'd say it's a great role for an unknown or a guy who's an up-and-commer for sure.

"For me, I hope people take away when they see 'The Force Awakens' is the sense that in the most ordinary life, the most extraordinary things can happen."
