WFOD is taking a hands on approach to hollywood’s endless recycling of old ideas and nostalgia in a new segment called “The WFOD Recast.”  The premise is simple.  We take something we once loved and cast the movie version of it (or latest movie version in some cases).  There is no budget restraints or egos involved.  No part is too small.  The goal is to suggest the absolute best cast possible.

This week: FACE/OFF


afi-fest-2009-precious-screening-gabourey-sidibe-37184

THE FIRST ROLE WE CAST WAS JAMIE ARCHER.  SHE WAS ORIGINALLY PLAYED BY DOMINIQUE SWAIN, WHO PLAYED JAIL BAIT IN MANY A FILM UNTIL I GUESS SHE NO LONGER LOOKED LIKE A TEENAGER AND HAD TO GET A REAL JOB.

NAPPIER WENT WITH PRECIOUS HERSELF, GABOUREY SIDIBE.

MIKE CHOSE TO GO WITH SARAH HYLAND OF “MODERN FAMILY” FAME.

TRAVIS WENT WITH CHLOE GRACE MORETZ.  THAT’S A GOOD M/F/K GAME, THOSE 3…..

CASTOR’S WACKY BROTHER POLLUX WAS NEXT.

NAPPIER KEPT WITH HIS THEME AND CAST EDDIE MURPHY IN THE ROLE.

MIKE CHOSE DANE COOK.

TRAVIS WENT WITH “NEW GIRL” STAR, JAKE JOHNSON.  SURELY ALL 3 OF THESE FINE ACTORS WOULD REMEMBER WHERE THEY PUT THE BOMB.

EVE ARCHER (ORIGINALLY PLAYED BEAUTIFULLY BY THE CONFUSINGLY SEXY JOAN ALLEN)

TRAVIS CHOSE TO GO WITH THE NOT CONFUSINGLY SEXY ROSAMUND PIKE.  YOU MAY REMEMBER HER FROM ONE OF HER MAN HATING ROLES IN RECENT FLICKS LIKE “GONE GIRL” AND “THAT MOVIE THAT WAS VERY SIMILAR TO GONE GIRL.”

MIKE WENT WITH DIANE LANE.  EVERY TIME I SEE HER, I THINK OF HER IN “UNFAITHFUL” GETTING IT DOGGY IN THAT DIRTY STAIRWELL.

NAPPIER DECIDED ON THE OBVIOUS CHOICE TO PLAY A MIDDLE AGED HOUSE WIFE GRIEVING THE MURDER OF HER YOUNG SON WHILE TRYING TO HOLD HER FAMILY TOGETHER: DAMON WAYANS.

NAPPIER CHOSE MARLON WAYANS TO PLAY THE PART OF SASHA.  THAT’S RIGHT.  MARLON WAYANS.

MIKE WENT WITH TARAJI P. HENSON, WHO YOU MAY KNOW FROM HER ROLE IN “EMPIRE.”

TRAVIS WENT WITH ROSARIO DAWSON, THUS SOLIDIFYING THE THEORY THAT IT’S TIME TO INJECT A LITTLE FLAVOR INTO OUR FACE/OFF REBOOT.

SO YOU CAN KINDA START TO SEE WHO TOOK THIS SERIOUSLY, RIGHT?

SEAN ARCHER AND CASTOR TROY.  THE TWO ENEMIES IN A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND WITS.  THIS, OF COURSE, WOULD BE THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY IN NAPPIER’S EYES TO REBOOT THE BIG MAMA’S HOUSE FRANCHISE AS WELL AS THE MADEA SERIES.  THEY’RE GOING TO FACE OFF.

MIKE WENT WITH A MORE CONVENTIONAL PAIR OF PICKS….CASTING GARY OLDMAN AS SEAN ARCHER AND GUY PEARCE AS CASTOR TROY.

TRAVIS CASTED MICHAEL FASSBENDER AND SAM ROCKWELL IN THE ROLES.


that was it.  hear the episode now if you missed it.  let us know what we should do next.
