Yeah, Marsden has always looked really young for his age.
He looks like a guy in shape in his 40s - the difference will be clear when they have scenes together...
The Stand was primarily filmed on 16mm, so unless they royally screw this release up it will look much better than the old transfer, which is unsurprisingly a very video-era transfer.
I'm looking at current pictures of him and he can easily pass for 30s. And that's him on the street, not with make-up, lighting and (if necessary) digital tricks.
Well, I like the sound of that, though I have to admit that the last time I watched the miniseries it didn't hold up as well for me as I was expecting. :/ I'd kind of like them to redo the Flagg effects in particular as possibly low-hanging fruit, though that's almost certainly outside the scope of this effort. There's other things that just feel very "tv" for me, but that's more a consequence of the miniseries being what it is, I think.
The first and last episodes, IMO, still for the most part hold up really well. It's the middle two where things are a bit shakier.
Randall Flagg will be played by Alexander Skarsgard.
Those Skarsgards really love being Stephen King villains!
Also announced Jovan Adepo (The Leftovers) as Larry Underwood, Owen Teague (Bloodline) as Harold Lauder, Brad William Henke (Orange Is the New Black) as Tom Cullen, and Daniel Sunjata (Rescue Me) as Cobb.
Whoopi Goldberg confirmed Collider’s earlier scoop that she will play Mother Abagail.
Whoopi debuted her new hair for the role on The View today and talked about the importance of her physical appearance in the role.
Damn, they're putting together a hell of a cast for this.
I really like that look on her actually, very striking.
Vanity Fair published an extensive article about the mini-series, along with images from the series. The article details how the mini-series does and does not relate with the current crisis as well as how it diverts from the book (and the 1994 mini-series).
Oooh, I'll have to check that out when I'm not at work (he says while posting to a BBS).
Whoopi looks great; everyone else looks pretty meh, though.
It's certainly going to be interesting to see how it compares to the earlier miniseries.
I looked up the Blu ray release of said earlier miniseries, and reviews were...not all I was hoping for in terms of quality upgrades.
Are they related to Stellan?
