I'm Just Sayin'

In the Twilight movie, I am not pleased with who was cast for Jasper. I heart Jasper...I really, really do but this guy they have playing him See for yourself.

He's on the far right. Green shirt, black jacket. Gay.

Looks like a girl.

Notice how they put him all blurry in the back? (He's the one in the white coat.)

Boys are not supposed to rat their hair!

Alice and Jasper don't even match. Ugh!

So what do you all think? Am I alone in my opinions that Jasper was mis-cast? I just always pictured him as quiet but fierce and dashingly handsome. I mean he was a Civil War soldier for crying out loud! He lived with the toughest and meanest vampires and trained them to be soldiers. I guess I'm just going to have to close my eyes and picture Jasper the way I want him to be when he comes on the big screen. *sigh*

I think Jasper sucks. Maybe he is better in the movie than he looks hovering around in the pictures. I haven't seen the trailer yet, but I'm holding out judgement until I do. I'm still unsure of the casting of Edward. I just don't see it, so I need to see the trailer before I pass judgement.

at first I thought he was a woman.

Yeah, and Jasper is suppose to be a Texan, right? I mean, seriously? They don't breed 'em like that here. These are the corn-feed boys that scream yee-haw! and pride themselves on how macho they can be in reeeeally stupid ways. How on earth, does sissy, girly-man translate into Civil War Texas warrior-like soldier? I don't get it either. Whatever, maybe we'll get over it . . . I doubt it.

P.S. Did I mention how I love a good stereotype every now and then? ;)

Ok here are my casting comments. I HATE the Jasper they picked. He does look like a woman. I totally picture someone a little...ok a LOT manlier. Rugged. Outdoorsy. This guy(if he is not a woman) looks like he gets a mani pedi facial every week.

Also- I want Emmett to be more manly, and hot dumb jock looking. This Emmett for some reason is not....a bear fighter. I need a hairy man who fights bears yo.

Amd Rosalie. Her hair looks like a bad wig. This is not the ethereal unreal beautiful cold blonde diva I pictured.

yuck, yuck, yuck - I don't like any of them. I can't see how the movie will even come close to matching up with the book!!!!!!

qozdjppz: what happens when hollywood takes a book and makes it into a movie. (previous slang for this was: it gets jacked up!)

I like Alice. I don't like Jasper. He wouldn't wear a white coat (with his history, he wouldn't want to have to clean the blood off). He would probably wear military blue.

And with all he's seen and done, he would have a hardened expression.

The whole cast looks like they belong in the cast of the latest CW drama. Of course, that IS the demographic they're going for.

Oh well. We always want to see our favorite books become movies. Then we're upset when we do because the directors/producers just don't have the vision. I have a piece of flair on my face book that says "don't judge a book by its movie".

OK, I give. You caught me, OK? I haven't read the twilight books. There. I said it. Go on. Take my girl card. I know I deserve it. It's not that I don't want to read them, I just haven't gotten around to it.

But this much I can say...Dude look like a lady!
