The Matrix is an ode to black exploitation.

Agent Smith works for The Man(The Machines) and The Matrix is the game The Man uses to pull the wool over your eyes

Neo is Leeroy and at the end he gets The Glow

Morpheus is the leader of the underground movement f!ghting against the man

Cypher was the sellout brother

































Anyway, I agree with the consensus, Will Smith could NOT have played a better Neo then Keanu ended up playing. And yes, I know Will Smith is the better actor. Keanu just fit the tone of that movie PERFECTLY. Role of a lifetime.

Lohan? Ok she fu*ked up on that. Could've been a nice comeback film.

Thomas Jane fu*ked up epicly. Would've k!lled on Mad Men.

Matt Damon?

Jake Gyllenhaal? Yeah that movie would've suited him fine.

Julia Roberts? Perfect role for her, don't know what she was thinking.

Helen Mirren? Again another good role for her.

Will Smith? Glad he didn't take the part, could not see him fitting in that role.

Leo Dicap? Being the big fan of his work I am, of course he fu*ked up

Warren Beatty would've done good, but Burt just was made for it.

Mel Gibson? :hmm: That's interesting

Drew Barrymore? Well........yea lol

Vanessa Williams & Angela Bassett? :hmm: Nope that role was made for Halle

John Travolta? He would've done well.

Angelina Jolie? Yea it's better off she didn't accept it.

All these dudes from other countries that hid their accent for roles, it's crazy to see. Gibson did an old a.ss war movie i watched in school where he played an Aussie, so that wasn't a surprise, but like Hugh Jackman being Aussie and House MD being a Brit... You hear them in interviews for the first time talking natural and it's like "wtf?"
Same thing happened when I found out Jax from Sons of Anarchy was British.. My mind was blown.. For whatever reason if seems that foreigners can pull off a pretty convincing American accent whereas Americans normally suck when they try to pull off a foreign accent..

It's because Americans are notoriously parochial. Just over a third own a passport. Americans don't travel to other countries like other people from different countries travel. So they have been around more Americans than Americans have been around more Brits, Irish, Aussies, etc. etc. That is why foreign actors can nail American accents while American actors still fail to capture good foreign accents.

Some of these were good decisions. How can it be a mistake to turn down Showgirls?

Did not know that about McNulty.. So that mean for the scenes when he was undercover setting up a session with the prostitutes during the season about the dead girls... He was an Englishman playing an American that was faking a bad English accent
