So many movie casts were changed or announced today that we couldn't help but take notice:
Howard in Terminator? It sounds like Bryce Dallas Howard is in talks to replace Charlotte Gainsbourg as Kate Connor, the wife of hero John Connor, in Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins. My initial, shallow reaction: What's with all the redheads in various Terminator projects? Upon further thought, though, I can't help thinking that when the casting choices are as different as Gainsbourg and Howard (physically, as actors, and in their film choices), it's hard to believe the story they're selling, that this is due to the possible actors' strike creating conflicts for Gainsbourg. Also, isn't it about time we stopped referring to Howard as Ron Howard's daughter or, even more insulting to both Howards, as Opie's kid? I think they've both risen above those pigeonholes by now.
It's official -- Rachelle Lefevre is out as Victoria in the third Twilight movie, Eclipse, and Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation, The Village) is in. Supposedly, it's due to a "scheduling conflict," but could it simply be that the producers wanted a better, more famous actress in the role? They're not alone. We think that a lot of actors in the cast could stand to be upgraded, so we went through and re-cast the entire thing in our Re-Casting Wish List.
