Furthermore,anyone who has seen "JAWS 3" with Dennis Quaid and Bess
Armstrong will understand why he would be all wrong as Dirk Pitt.
I don't know enough about Doherty and Thiessen to call them twits, but
they definitely are *kids*, and that's enough to rule them out for the
role of Loren Smith. This character is not a kid; she's a veteran
congresswoman. You can't cast a kid in that role. And you can't cast
Julian McMahon as Pitt, for the same reason.
As for Jaws 3, I don't see the relevance. For one thing, that was a
*terrible* film, hardly a fair same of what Quaid can do. Moreover,
it came out almost 20 years ago, when Quaid was basically a kid. He
wouldn't have been right for the role then, but he's okay now.
Incidentally, I have the same problem with Hugh Jackman as Pitt, as
another poster suggested. I think he's still too young.
