There are also examples where a particular performance is not sufficient for the task, but I would say that is more the exception than the rule. A man bites dog story.
But you do at least concede that it can happen, so the issue cannot considered to be 'irrelevant' as you previously decreed. For the record, I think that Portman is a fine actress and I'm sure that she'll be equally as fine reprising the role of Foster; all I asked is whether she actually wanted to be there given what [supposedly] went on over Jenkins' departure.

Don't be ashamed of the source material when making your adaption. EMBRACE it.
