Michael Gambon as Dumbledore in Harry Potter. Richard Harris was perfect, obviously he had to be replaced but they chose terribly in my eyes.

To be fair to Reeves when he's cast within his comfort zone he does it very well (Bill & Ted, Pointbreak, Matrix), when he's cast as a Victorian gentleman coming to terms with his wife becoming a vampire less so.

Agree with this, Dumbledore was supposed to be fairly kind and a little bit odd, with a dark past which he covered up with oddities. Gambon played him ridiculously aggressively.

The writers of Corrie have been trying to get rid of Roach for years however as a much loved character there'd be uproar if he was axed. They've realised they can't afford his huge weekly salary and have engineered a story which makes it easy to withdraw him from the show with a view to axing him very shortly whilst appearing morally upstanding.

However, be prepared for Julie Goodyear to come out and say that A/ She knew all along and that's why she was sacked and that B/ Roach and Le Vell sexually assaulted her when she was on the show.

Also, look out for the next round of newpapers headlines "I was sexually abused by Jack Duckworth, Eddie Yates, Alf Roberts, Stan Ogden and Albert Tatlock"

At this rate, Coronation Street will become a 30 minute monologue with Betty pottering around her house talking to herself

Harsh, I think the director's cut of Daredevil shows that the film is nowhere near as bad as many people think it is, but the editing was dire. It's still not a great film but I feel it's a bit too easy to mock Affleck's acting and blame it on him when in fact he does a pretty passable Matt Murdock

Sorry CJ, can't agree. I think he's a great actor (even better director), but thought he was pretty dire in Daredevil. Though, I haven't seen the director's cut, so can't really comment on that.

Really? Thought he was perfect for that role, a flashy cocky so and so who treat women like **** but deep down inside was a desperately lonely man looking for something real and meaningful.

Let's face it, that was Jude Law in real life, he was bed hopping and banging women left right and centre. He was ideal to play Alfie

He's already been named, but the worst miscasting of all time is Nicolas Cage in movies in general. A greater beneficiary of nepotism than Kim Jong Un even.

Any actor who gets blown off the screen by Sean Connery should never act again. He ruined The Rock.

not sure I'd agree with "second best Bond movie", but I agree that it could have been a very good film, ruined by Lazenby's dire performance.

Nathalie Portman didn't make a particularly good Queen Amidala...
