Pierce Brosnan.
Tee-hee, I was going to say that!

IIRC, Brad Pitt, Fincher's fairly regular-ish collaborator, was linked to the role for a while before the first movie.

Re: Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel might happen without Craig

last thing: it doesn't take any effort to come here and say i don't like something. im looking at stuff on the board and think 'i didn't like that and i'll say why' and it took like 10 seconds. not nonsensical.

'it was boring and i didn't like it' is as valid an opinion as 'it was engaging and i did like it'

Re: Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel might happen without Craig

What about recasting with someone who's, you know, Swedish? Alexander Skarsgård perhaps? Sure, his dad played Martin Vanger in "Dragon Tattoo," but that doesn't preclude him from taking over the role. And being that Blomkvist apparently has yet to meet a woman who won't go to bed with him, Skarsgård would sure fit the bill of the kind of guy who has that kind of "problem."

No one said your opinion wasn't valid. All I said was that you obviously must care enough about the entire thing to express that you didn't like it. Most people wouldn't have expended the energy to do so. Sheesh.

Too young. Plus, I don't think the draw to the Blomkvist character was his sex appeal, he just so happened to be a sexual free spirit.

Yeah, Blomkvist was a middle-aged man and IIRC in book 3 he was described as good looking but could lose a little weight around the tummy. Admittedly Craig isn't exactly carrying a spare tyre round his gut, but he's probably closer to the age and lived-in look that 'Kally should have, rather than the more godlike Skaarsgard.

Skaarsgard loves his True Blood.

Pierce Brosnan.
Andrew Garfield. (Social Network connection...) But keep Robin Wright!


Having now seen the film, I don't think Craig can be replaced. Either get him back or don't sequel at all.

I thought that this had recently been debunked anyway.

Taking five seconds to post an opinion on a forum you're browsing doesnt mean you care particularly about the topic.

This post took me 7 seconds and I have read only part of the first book, never seen the movies and dont care for Craig. Just found your responses to be annoying.
