I’m not sure this headline means what the writers thought it would mean: Marvel Going After BIG Comedic Actors For ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’. Reading what’s below the headline defines “big” as Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler.
I must be getting less tolerant of certain actors being cast in films, because my first thought was “Well, the movie has laser guns, and someone needs to be used as a demonstration of how they can kill people.” My next one was “I hope I don’t have to wait through the whole movie to see them get whacked, like Snails in Dungeons & Dragons.”
Carrey is the better of the two, as he has a wider acting range (or can do more than one voice/accent), but that’s mostly in comparison to Sandler who can just do himself, for the most part.
But for the record, Louis CK, Patton Oswalt, Will Farrell, and pretty anyone from Community, Psych, or most current-run sit-coms would be “BIG Comedic Actors” as compared to at least one of the two possibilities mentioned above.
Coffee? Yes, I think I need more coffee. It helps dilute the bile a bit. Back to your regularly scheduled internet.
