Mickey from Seinfeld is playing Big Figure!
No way... that's crazy!
I don't know that this qualifies as definitive proof, but it would be cool if true.
I liked the idea of that Dinklage guy playing Big Figure, but he's taking all the good dwarf roles these days.
Ah, he should be good, always really liked him in Seinfeld. I wonder if they'll grey his hair, probably not really needed, but if they try it out and he suits it I'd imagine they will. He's got a good voice too, can imagine the scene with him and it's great.
yeah, dinklage is good, and he does get all the little guy roles. i could see mickey doin it though. i don't know where the info came from, but it could have been a prison extra. i mean, his scenes are definitely filmed whoever the actor is
I would have preferred Henry Gibson. http://images.google.com/imgres?img...son&um=1&start=2&sa=X&oi=images&ct=image&cd=2
When there were rumours of Henry Gibson doing the role a while back I was well up for that idea. But now it seems Danny Woodburn is doing the honours I'm very glad of it. I don't think Henry Gibson is small enough to get across the whole point of 'Big Figure', ie opposite of the Kingpin stature wise, tiny guy standing between big thugs who are scared/in awe of him. Gibson might've came across as old and withered rather than the small guy who's never had to fight as he's the brains of the operation. Rorschach's wind ups may not have came across so well either.
He always had a bit of a seething anger in Seinfeld too, I can totally picture him doing the business.
Haven't we known this for awhile?
Anyway, sounds fine. There's not much to the character of Big Figure besides short and serious.
edit for nonsense
I'm sorry, I just don't see that(other than height).
But I trust snyder for casting, so if it's true, it might be fine.
Yeah, I doubt these people working on this film would be so thoughtless ("What??? Snyder wanted a midget, so we got 'im one!")
