Mother of fuck! If there's one thing that pisses me off, it's when something I was looking forward to doesn't go my way. Like the film adaptation to one of my favorite books, Water For Elephants. This is a beautiful story about love, hardship, and the circus. I kept telling Willy, "Man, this would make a great movie!"

Now, lo and behold, they're making a movie. Starring she-of-the-mighty-chin, Reese Whitherspoon, and... oh my shit.. Robert-I-look-like-I'm-sucking-dick-all-day-Patterson.

My literary nerd rage knows no bounds.

Oh boy, do I love Reese Witherspoon. She is wonderful.

I haven't read the book though, so for all I know she may be an awful fit for the character.

Actually, I don't have an issue with her. I think she'd do fine.. but Robert Patterson!? He makes no sense. That casting makes NO sense. Someone like Adrien Brody, THAT would be a good fit. He's supposed to be a small-town boy, a vet, a son of two Polish immigrants.
