    ^ But he'd be replaced by Nathan Fillion for the sequel.

    I'd heard a week or two ago that Eric Bana was in the mix for this project. No word of him here though.

    ... Liam Neeson as Power Girl? :evil:

    I get the feeling I'm missing something here...

    ^ Just the tendency for some fans to suggest Fillion for every single casting choice out there!!!!!!

    Which reminds me, Bruce Campbell would be perfect for this role! :eek:

    ^That's not a bad idea, actually. Shame he'd never get within a sniff of an audition.

    I will be disappointed if they don't cast Idris Elba as Abe Lincoln.

    Benjamin Walker (Flags of Our Fathers) is Abraham Lincoln (of the special Vampire killing variety).

    Link

    He's a nobody, basically. :lol:

    He was once slated to appear as Dr. Hank McCoy/Beast in X-Men: First Class but had to drop-out due to portraying Andrew Jackson in a musical. I guess the guy has some presidential inclinations.

    The ending was great. Can't wait to see that realized on screen.

    When I saw his mug shot, I wasn't quite convinced. But then...

    "Those wealthy New England Congress fucks would rather tax us and play polo all day than defend the frontier!" "Who am I? I'm Andrew FUCKING Jackson!" :rommie::rommie::rommie:

    Yep. He's the man for the job. A very well developed sense of Presidential-level absurdity.

    And as a nice bonus, he looks a lot like a young Liam Neeson, so we can watch both Lincoln flicks while maintaining a seamless illusion of canonicity.
