    Does ANYBODY get excited when Harrison Ford is in a movie anymore? I mean, except for Calista Flockhart who undoubtedly wants the under-acting over-curmudgeoning dude out of the house every so often.

  • ThePhysicist says:

    Asa Butterfield is a great choice for Ender... very young yet very intelligent face. Also like the Harrison Ford pick, but he should have been cast as Mazor Rackham. John Goodman would have been a better choice in the role of Colonel Graff.

  • I cannot lie: The idea of Ford playing Branch Rickey in the Jackie Robinson biopic has me pretty stoked. On paper, anyway, it's perfect casting. I guess we'll see if he can be roused to greatness.
