Seeing how it is the month of Halloween when frights and terrors rule the land, let’s imagine a truly terrifying casting option for Esmeralda.
In my mind, the idea of Miley Cyrus playing Esmeralda is cringe inducing.
Cyrus isn’t an actress. She fits more into celebrity end of fame. She says one thing on twitter and it’s everywhere. She shocks, so that people will talk about her.
But let’s discuss her as actress as that is what she started out as I guess and that is the point of this post. To put it bluntly, she can’t act. I have seen her in the Hannah movie, Bolt and 30 grueling minutes of Last Song. Cyrus can only act like herself; a self-indulgent women-children who thinks having fun is partying and being overtly vulgar.
The idea of her playing any character from literature is bone-chilling. She can not play characters that have any complexity or depth. Even Esmeralda in the novel is too complex for her acting skills.
If she were to play Esmeralda can you imagine the dance scene *shudders*. And then the rest of it would be hackneyed and hammy. Of course, Cyrus doesn’t seem to be concerned with acting these days but the threat looms, like Slenderman lurking in a deep dark forest.
If however she ever got it in her head to play Esmeralda she has means to do it. Let that thought steep into your mind and then stop your heart in the small-hours of the night when hell opens upon you.Follow thehunchblog
I actually watched a great deal of Hanah Montana when I was younger (Mostly through my sister) at the time my general impression was that she was just another pop sensation. Through years of irrelevance she did not make the transition but simply jump to her current status of bizarre pervert who used to be on Disney. Enough of that for a moment. I really like this idea of anti hypathetical casting. I really hope you do more of these. Like some big burly jock sort of guy for Quasimodo (My personal favorite character) or maybe that popularly cabbage patch fellow for ol’ Dom Claude. Perhaps Amanda Bynes for Fleur de Lys or Samual L Jackson as King Louie. Regardless of the actors none of them can top even the most minor computerized kitty. It seems interesting. On an unrelated note, am I the only hunchback fan who does not like frollophiles? I don’t get how people think Frollo is a good guy. He’s some crazy old dude who stalks a young woman and his obsession just makes him worse. He’s sympathetic but not an anti hero. I remember a while back I was planning on creating a blog and highlighting that issue for me. That is until I discovered this little gem of a site and deemed my efforts irrelevant. Am I blushing?
Awwww, thank you, I’m glad you like the blog ^^
I can do more anti-hypathetical casting. though I cringed a lot getting a picture of Miley Cyrus and when I did one on Megan Fox last year.
I think people like Frollo because he has a lot complexity. He wants to good and pious but he let himself get taken in and at least in the book he knows he is in the wrong but can’t help it. In the disney movie he’s the opposite he think he is in the right and does terrible thing but he thinks he’s being righteous. He is interesting if nothing else but yeah he’s creepy.
That’s pretty much why I love Frollo. But I still am bewildered by Fresme. Though, I still look the topic up sometimes. Call me immature but I always get a good chuckle out of Fresme fan art. Especially the ones when the Disney Frollo has chiseled abs or something.
If that happened I think I might need to find a new favorite book, movie, musical, character and have the Men in Black erase any memory of HOND/NDDP. Esmeralda is my favorite character, so I would be devastated if this were to happen!
Me too, though I can’t imagine it ever happening well lets’ hope not, because it would be frightening.
