I am....unsure about this. I like the guy okay, but he doesn't strike me as Murphy or Robocop.
But isn't that better than casting someone who's just a clone of Peter Weller? I mean, he might turn out crap but, equally, at least we'll get something different.
IIRC, I once read an interview with either Weller or Verhoeven, can't remember which one, but the gist of it was that Weller got the role because no-one else would take it!
