Some more casting news for Dark Shadows—Eva Green is in talks to play Angelique.
This is great for me, since I was expecting Tim Burton to cast Helena Bonham Carter for the role. The character is originally from Martinique, so it would work. The Nostalgia Critic (as Chester A. Bum) does a great skit in the middle of Chicago’s snowstorm.10 Awesome DC Animated Moments From Cartoons That Aren’t Part of the DC Animated Universe.
After reading the comments, sounds like I should track down Justice League: The New Frontier.
And now, answering a meme, from persiflage_1
:- Comment with "Paper. Scissors. Rock. Spock. Merlin."
- I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
- Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
- Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.
, switching the words--this time, to “Paper. Scissors. Rock. Doctor. Methos.”1 - Who'd win in a sword fight between Jack and Methos?
I’ll say Methos, given that he has the most experience. Jack gets himself decapitated since Methos ignores the flirting and assumes he’s an Immortal after his head. Likely just shoots him dead, takes his head. When Jack revives and continues talking while just a head on the ground, it gets a little bit freaky. And, thus, we finally have the one true explanation for just how he became the Face of Boe. 2 - If you could study any subject at all, anywhere in the world, what would you choose?
There are a few. Folklore, mythology, Absolutely nobody will be surprised by this one, not even my family. Paranormal/Parapsychology. You can blame Ghostbusters for that one. There was a college somewhere where they were studying vampire films and tv shows. I would have loved to be in that class. 3 - Finish this sentence: It's raining...
“It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. He went to bed and bumped his head, and couldn’t get up in the morning.” It’s an old nursery rhyme. It was either that, or it’s raining and turning into a massive amount of sleet.4 - What's your favourite New Who episode?
Blink. I love the first appearance of the Weeping Angels. A very close second is The Unquiet Dead, since that was the first episode I ever saw.5 - If you could persuade a film maker to reboot a favourite movie, what would you pick?
This was a tough one. Avoiding Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, or Indiana Jones, since remaking those would be horrific.
At one point, they were trying to get a live action version of The Last Unicorn off the ground before it faltered—so I’ll say that. Get Peter Jackson behind it—ideally once he’s finished with The Hobbit. Try to keep Christopher Lee as King Haggard. If he’s unavailable, then try for Ian McKellen. Get Peter S. Beagle to oversee the script so it won’t divert too far from his vision, and this time make sure he gets his fair share of the profit like he so richly deserves.
