Wow they went young and pretty for Waller? If CW was doing a Bruce Wayne show I bet the Penguin would be a Justin Bieber clone.

Can blame CW alone for this. DC did this first. Angela Basset did not look like the original character either.

The comic book company cast Bassett as Waller? Did they cast Pam Grier too?

In this case though, the cable company was the one trying to keep costs down by refusing to pay CBS such a substantial increase.

Yeah, I know. The sentiment is still valid though.

My point was in the comics DC has made Waller thin and young. Completely separate from that she was also thin in Green Lantern and Smallville. The trend is for Waller looking nothing like her original comic book appearance. Other than her race.

My point is that Bassett was Waller before the New 52 and the debut of thin Waller. And by connecting Bassett's casting to DC, you implied that they were responsible.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Sigh... I was not connecting Bassett to DC directly. I guess I should have put " Angela Bassett (Warner Bros Studio), Pam Grier, and also DC Comics itself have made Waller thin" you were putting the blame on CW for starting this. Who cares who did the casting, they did not do this first...,
Did I have to write a detailed paper for you on the casting process and explain how DC and WB and the CW are all part of Time Warner but work separately too? You are being really anal.

Just responding to what you wrote. "DC did this first. Angela Basset did not look like the original character either." Not sure what other way I could take that statement, since DC didn't do it first and there was nothing to separate or clarify the part about Bassett.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I've only seen his work on Glee and CSI:Miami. I hated his character on Glee, although, that may have been the point of the character (obstacle between Blaine and Kurt) - so that may bias me against him as that's the majority of his work. Looking at clips from his CSI appearance, he didn't do too shabby of a job, especially since he had the difficult take of playing twins with different personalities in the episode.

I look forward to see if he will be able to play Barry as a likable character.

I know I shouldn't pre-judge, but I have a really hard time accepting Barry Allen as a 23 year-old, brunette pretty boy.

Well this is the CW we're talking about. He's getting the Smallvile treatment.
