Sam Worthington playing Marcus Wright in Avatar?

Has it occurred to anybody that Worthington's role in the new movie is eerily similar to his Terminator character in T4: Salvation? I mean, look at the evidence...

Terminator 4: He plays a death row convict who is reborn by being put into another body, joins a resistance, and eventually ends up fighting for the other team.

Avatar: He plays a crippled soldier who "inhabits" another body, joins a resistance, and eventually ends up fighting for the other team.

I find this irony almost as amusing as the Christian Bale career to date. In Batman, he said, "We've got to stop the Joker!" in a gravelly voice. In Terminator, he said, "We've got to stop Skynet" in a gravelly voice. In Public Enemies, he said, "We've got to stop Johnny Depp" in a gravelly voice.

Boy, I guess you do what sells these days.

Well their early work was a little too nu-wave for my taste, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commerically and artistically

Re: Sam Worthington playing Marcus Wright in Avatar?

That really annoyed me when Bale broke the fourth wall in Public Enemies. Totally ruined the film for me. And why would Mann let him do that? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!?!
